What is your story?
We all have stories. Some are funny, some are painful—all contribute to who we are. What we don’t always see is that God is weaving an overarching story that started before time, extends through history, and will reach far beyond our lifetimes. God extends an invitation to each of us to step into His story and experience the ongoing narrative of His Word in our lives.
In this unique DVD-based study, your group will join visionary author Ben Arment and four of the most creative and effective communicators in the church today—Leonard Sweet, Chris Seay, Pete Wilson, and Ginny Owens—as they reveal some of their personal stories and expound on key stories in King David's life. Your group will examine the concepts of backstory, setting, plot, conflict, and resolution within the life of David and within your own lives.
Step into the power of God’s story and see where He can take yours.
