The way you’re wired is no accident! God designed your unique mix of gifts, natural abilities, personality, values, and life experiences to play an essential part in his kingdom. These six sessions will help you develop your God-given design at home, at work, at church, and in your community in a way that extends God’s love to others and enriches your own life immeasurably. “Doing Life Together is a groundbreaking study…[It’s] the first small group curriculum built completely on the purpose-driven paradigm…The greatest reason I’m excited about [it] is that I’ve seen the dramatic changes it produces in the lives of those who study it.” —From the foreword by Rick Warren

Based on the five biblical purposes that form the bedrock of Saddleback Church, Doing Life Together will help your group discover what God created you for and how you can turn this dream into an everyday reality. Experience the transformation firsthand as you begin Connecting, Growing, Developing, Sharing, and Surrendering your life together for him.
