A Small Group Journey Toward Life

The newest study from Nick Cunningham!

Forward is a seven-session small group study based on 2 Peter 1:3-11 and the virtues lifted up in this passage: Moral excellence, knowledge, self-control, endurance, godliness, affection for others, and love. There is a strong focus on actively pursuing a godly life...it's not just resistance to sin that matters, but an active pursuit of goodness and love, fully living into the new life that Christ offers believers. Forward helps Christ-centered small groups take the next step. They learn how to push one another forward in their shared life together. Pushing one another forward means helping one another grow in faith, knowledge, and actions consistent with a Christian life.
Inside the study you will find:

  • The author focuses on actively pursuing the godly life that Christ offers believers.
  • Questions for individual response and prompts for creative interaction.
  • Descriptions of group activities based on the weekly lesson.
  • Space to record individual and group responses.

As a follow up to Cunningham's small group study called One, it follows One's format, including a participant book with teaching content and interactive elements; a leader guide; and video. However, small groups that have not previously used the One curriculum will enjoy Forward as a guide for developing Christian virtues with the support of and partnership of others in their small group.

First study in the Series...

Life is better shared…especially in a Christ-centered community.

One is an eight week small group study that leads readers to form a closeknit community in which they grow in faith together.

Although One is a small-group study written to cover an eight-week session, its larger purpose is for participants of the group to embrace meaningful relationships with their fellow Christ followers and to continuing to meet together, lifting each other up, pushing each other forward, and sending each other out—indefinitely.

Inside the study you will find:

  • Reflections from the author outlining the biblical vision for Christian community and how to make that a reality in our lives today.
  • Questions for individual response and prompts for creative interaction.
  • Descriptions of group activities based on the weekly lesson, designed to build community.
  • Space to record individual and group responses.
