Periodically we start virtual small groups for those who want to grow in their ability to hear the Lord’s voice. We’re starting another one the week of 7/18. Sign up by emailing one of the people (Mary Beth or Kevin) listed below. Heidi Landes gives a testimony concerning her experience:

I was craving community and challenge with other women.  Kathy Lucas was
the leader for this first group, and soon we began the introductions
(over email) of 8 women from all over.  As we  started to get
to know each other and became more honest about things God was saying
to us, we were amazed to find out He was saying similar things to each
of us!  Over the next month or so, we committed to  more prayer for each
other, and God truly knit our hearts together.  I could tell something
had happened when I was facing a major life decision in December and my
first response was to email this group and ask for prayers of wisdom,
because I knew they would do it! 

By the end of our first book, we had a core of 5-6 women, and we decided
to continue on with another book to study.  I also then felt God
prompting me to share this with others, so I invited some friends and
launched another women’s listening prayer group with 8 new women.  That
group has communicated solely over email, but has been an encouragement
and challenge to me as well.

Six months after I signed up for that first group, I now have two groups
of Christian sisters around the country.  I often forget that I have
never even met many of these women face to face because they are some of
my strongest supporters in life! Together we are encouraging each other
to seek Christ and His Kingdom first, and growing together in what that
really means.  Although the official group study has ended, the
relationships are just beginning, and I can’t wait to see where God
leads us next as we make plans to meet and share in ministry together in
person!
 
I highly recommend that you sign up here and try it today!
Start date:     Week of July 18th. 

Reading:    Groups will do 3-4 chapters a week, depending on the group.

Communication:  Groups will primarily communicate via email. The coaches of each group will facilitate discussion, but the expectation is that everyone in the group participates often.
Cost:       Just the cost of getting the book.

Role of the coaches: encourage you to listen to God, hold you accountable, facilitate discussion, share their own struggles and stories.
