The Beyond Colorblind Small Group Series encourages honest discussion about our ethnic stories. Gather a group to encounter God together in this 4-week series as you explore your ethnic identity in light of the gospel. Integrating evangelism, discipleship, and reconciliation, this series will equip your group to articulate how God is redeeming what is broken and highlighting what is beautiful both in your ethnic journeys and in the world.

Each week of the small group series includes:

  • 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. 
  • Participant Handouts so that your group members can follow along with the video, Bible study, and response activities.
