Whether Jesus was speaking to large crowds or small groups, He made sure everyone was clear on what it meant to follow Him.  As pastors, we are called to do the same.

Jesus is NOT looking for fans…
He’s looking for followers.
Followers who understand that…

There is no forgiveness without repentance.  
There is no salvation without surrender.
There is no life without death.
There is no believing without following.

Not a Fan is a serious small group study that powerfully communicates this challenging but central message of the Gospel, and The Pastor’s Resource kit is designed to help you as a pastor in your mission to raise up a generation of completely committed followers of Jesus.

If you’re ready to lead a movement of first century-like Christ followers, then dig deep into the Not a Fan™ small group materials, and take your church on the journey.

"Not A Fan is a book that every Christian should read and regularly re-read. I started to read the manuscript and could not stop until I finished. This is a NOW message for the Church and my hope is that every believer who reads this will become an authentic follower of Christ."
--Christine Caine
Founder, The A21 Campaign and author of Run to Win
"This book disrupts the status quo and challenges readers to follow Christ with greater devotion."
--Mark Batterson
Lead Pastor of National Community Church and author of Soul Print
"Kyle Idleman's Not a Fan is a crucial message for our time. It's a powerful call to commitment and to following Jesus with all our hearts that has challenged me in the best of ways!"
--Jud Wilhite
Senior Pastor of Central Christian Church, Las Vegas and author of Throw it Down
"Jesus never asked us to sit on the sidelines and cheer for his cause. In Idleman's book, Not a Fan, Kyle will challenge you to grow from a fair weather fan to a full-time follower of Christ."
--Craig Groeschel
Senior Pastor of and author of The Christian Atheist
"Kyle Idleman knows where we live and where we could live with God's help.  His words are, at once, profound and practical. He is committed to helping us move in the right direction.  If you need a helping hand in your journey, he'll point you to the right Person."
--Max Lucado
Pastor of Oak Hills Church and author of Fearless
"Not a Fan is truly a cutting edge Bible study that will challenge even the most obedient Christians to re-look at their relationship with Christ. It was a true pleasure to experience this study and examine myself through the lens of a fan or a follower. I highly recommend to individuals and churches everywhere."
--Mike Huckabee
Former Governor of Arkansas and author of Do The Right Thing
"Kyle Idleman is a remarkably gifted preacher, storyteller, and speaker. Not a Fan is an outstanding project that I can only hope will reach a wide viewership and touch many lives."
--Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Not a Fan marries the all-too-real life situations that so many of us face with the practical, timeless truths of God's word. It helps us look behind the facade, deep to the heart, in a compelling, believable and timely way. Whether you're kicking the tires of Christianity or have been walking in the faith for decades, these stories, and the messages behind them, will make you stop and think."
--Neal Joseph
Sr. VP of International Development, Compassion International
"I encourage friends to use 'not a fan,' the small group discipleship study for adults. We live in a culture where so many people embrace faith on a minimal basis. In fact, the word, "Christian," has become a minimal term and almost useless. People need to discover the real joy making Jesus Christ fully integral to all of life. This study series will help make it happen."
--Richard L. Gathro, Ed.D.
Dean, Nyack College
"Football has been described as 22 men on the field in desperate need of rest, and 60,000 fans in the stands in desperate need of exercise.  In the spirit of Trueblood and Bonhoeffer, Not A Fan challenges believers to get out of their seats, strap on the gear and get in the game.   Not A Fan is not for the faint of heart… it’s for those who want to join a company of the committed, and to obey what they claim to believe."
--Rev. Jon Kulaga, Ph.D.
Provost, Asbury University
"Not A Fan is one of the most novel and engaging small group studies I've ever seen.  I love how real life, situational drama is used via an 'embedded' teacher to flesh out Biblical truth. Truly unique and compelling."
--Joe Battaglia
President of Renaissance Communications and Chairman, WAY-FM
"It is media like this along with instructional workbooks that will become the outreach tool of the future."
--Darrel Billups
Executive Director, National Coalition of Men's Ministries
"City on a Hill produces the highest quality projects.  Not a Fan is their next offering and should be seen by every church in America."
--Matt Crouch,
CEO of Generation Entertainment
