Every church wants to retain those who are new to the church. We invest in outreach events to attract attention, and we work diligently to instill a culture of friendliness and connection. However, retention requires systematic teaching that grounds new people in the Word of God. All of us need materials that cover Apostolic doctrine thoroughly and represent our churches credibly.
The Elements Leader Guide has been created with the intent to foster discussion so participants can internalize truth and own it for themselves. Each session is scalable and can be adapted based on the educational level and Bible knowledge of your group. The lesson can also be adjusted based on the time teachers have allotted for their class.
