How to Use User-Friendly, Learner-Center Bible Studies to Help Those of all Spiritual Levels Grow
There is a plethora of Bible studies on the market today. But as a pastor, how do you find and choose those that help people of all spiritual levels grow, and help people learn to feed themselves spiritually?
So many Bible studies today lean heavily on the study of others and commentaries. While these are very valuable, they fail to teach people to dig into God's word themselves and learn to feed themselves spiritually through the Bible.
Diana Schick of Creative Living International has spent the last 20 years of her ministry developing learner-centered, user-friendly bible studies to help people of all spiritual levels do just this. People learn to read and dig into the truths of the Bible on their own. The "Building on the Basics" section of each study then helps learners apply these biblical truths to their lives.
Join Diana and her husband, Michael, in an upcoming teleseminar on Monday, May 7, 7 pm - 8 pm EST, 6 p.m. CST / 5 PST.
Can't make it? No problem.You'll be able to purchase the audio CD and the Creative Living Proverbs' study online afterward.

Healing the Heart of Your Church
Another excellent resource for pastors on developing a healthier leadership culture is called Healing the Heart of your Church.
Like people, a church can become sick and traumatized from past sins in its corporate Body. The destructive effects of these past sins can linger for decades, hindering the present and future work and growth of the church.
Healing the Heart of your Church explains this phenomenon, laying out a strategy to address the wounds and lead the church to healing and greater effectiveness for Christ.
Preview of April Issue:
In April's issue of Leadership Tips, we'll discuss how to address some of the hindrances to growth reviewed in the March issue of Leadership Tips.
