LCEF’s six-week Journey of Discovery Bible Study program helps you facilitate discussion and prayerful consideration among small groups within your ministry.
For more information about the Journey of Discovery Bible Study, please call LCEF’s Information Representatives at 800-843-5233 or by contacting LCEF.
Journey of Discovery is centered around a theme of travel—the ultimate destination being a deeper spiritual understanding of God’s intentions and a closer relationship with Jesus. Participants are encouraged to make prayerful decisions about the financial offerings they can give through their church.
The five-session study takes participants through different “gates” of giving and sharing as they seek to answer the question, “What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits to me?”
