Gather a group to encounter God together in this 4-week series as you explore your ethnic identity in light of the gospel.

- 9-13 minute testimony video that introduces the main theme of the week and is filled with personal stories and examples.
- Leader's Guide with an agenda, biblical reflection with passage background info, discussion questions, response activities, and video cheat-sheets.
