pastor’s resource kit.

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.

USE THE SAME SERMON SERIES that started the MOVEMENT and led a church of 20,000+ to GROW as Christ FOLLOWERS and declare, “We are not fans of Jesus!”
