Utilizing free, online video lessons set both in Africa and the United States, the "Small Group Experience" is the ideal resource for small groups, Sunday school classes, parachurch and non-profit ministries, ministry training, and even individuals.

In six lessons, the concepts of "When Helping Hurts" are brought to the reader in a format that is perfect for training, discussion, and application.

The videos provide expert instruction, and the "Small Group Experience" provides questions and prompts for conversation, deeper learning, and taking action.
