Zechariah: The Lord Remembers
Jason Snyder
Student Ministry Building

Join Discipleship Pastor Jason Snyder as he walks through the book of Zechariah. Zechariah is essential for us to study if we are going to understand God’s full plan for the end times.

Holy Ambition (Men’s Class)
Mark Phanco and Shawn Callander
Room W202

Live beyond what the Christian subculture tells you is right and holy and acceptable. The God of the universe is looking for regular people to accomplish things beyond our wildest dreams. In this series based on Nehemiah 1–6, learn how God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things and the process by which He molds men and women for His purposes.

Behold and Believe (Women’s Class)
Room W204

In her book Behold and Believe, Marian Jordan Ellis leads participants verse by verse through the Gospel of John. Through the eight weeks of Bible study and nine video-teaching sessions, she explains the Old Testament signs, symbols and prophecies fulfilled in Jesus Christ.

Launching Arrows: Parenting toward a Kingdom Target
Johnny Farr
Connection Room

Psalm 127:3 says, “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.” Arrows are straight – we must teach our kids to walk straight paths and take the truth into a crooked generation. Arrows are sturdy – we need to parent our children to be strong but pliable, able to withstand the pressures of life and oppositional worldviews. Arrows have a purpose – we need to instill in our children their identity and purpose so they might accomplish all God has for them.

After You Say, “I Do”
Adult Ministry Teachers
Room A103-105

Our marriage is the most important relationship after our relationship with Christ. And yet, it is easy to fall into the trap of not investing in the marriage relationship after you say, “I do” at the wedding altar. We want to help your marriage thrive and we invite couples of every life stage to join us for this 10-week course on conflict, intimacy, finances, trials and several other key topics.

Evangelism Training
Alli Carr
Room W208

One of the greatest tools of the Enemy is the unpreparedness and lethargy that characterizes modern-day Christians. Often, we forsake the potential impact that we could have for furthering God’s kingdom for the sake of comfort. Join us as we grow and learn all that God is calling us to.

Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m.
Portables on the South Side of Campus

The Life Recovery Ministry at Prestonwood Baptist Church helps men and women recover from emotional, physical, relational and spiritual wounds through the power of Christ. Through support groups, the Life Recovery Ministry will help people pursue, overtake, and recover a life of peace and purpose.

Has someone you know wandered far from God? Is that person’s behavior dominating your life? Whether struggling with selfishness, addiction or mental health issues, there is hope for the prodigal. Prodigal, part of the Life Recovery Ministry, is devoted to helping anyone dealing with someone who is just that – prodigal. Through the application of God’s truths, Prodigal provides a safe, loving environment for families who are hurting.

Anxiety & Depression
You are not alone. If you find yourself feeling anxious or overwhelmed … there is hope. Learn to walk in the freedom Christ promised.

Most people who have been through a separation or divorce will tell you that it is an incredibly painful and stressful experience. Divorce Care helps you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.

Are you experiencing the loss of someone you love? Find comfort and community in studying God’s Word together and discovering His plan for healing.

Forgiven and Set Free
This class is designed for women who need to heal emotionally and spiritually in a confidential environment after past abortions. The Scripture-based study guide Forgiven and Set Free by Linda Cochrane is the text used for the course, helping post-abortive women deal with relief, denial, anger, forgiveness, depression, letting go, and ultimately, acceptance.

Living Free (Men’s Class)
Living Free addresses the key drivers of unwanted sexual behavior, whether using pornography, being unfaithful, or paying for sex. Men, if you want to find freedom from sexual brokenness, it begins by identifying the unique reasons that bring you to it.

Wives of Living Free
This support group helps wives of men struggling with pornography addiction to be able to understand, support, and assist their husbands.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can be debilitating. This class, offered for men and women, gives an opportunity to see how to apply God’s Word to personal life circumstances and build community for support.

XChanged Life
It’s very likely that all of us have something in our life that we would like to “Xchange.” Xchanged Life is a spiritual process that delivers hope and support for anyone seeking a life free from the snares of lies that limit our God-designed destiny. The class is designed to help you “Xchange” “agreement with lies” for “trust in the truth of God’s Word.” Are you ready to make the Xchange?

Substance Abuse
Drug and alcohol addiction impacts the quality of life of those experiencing it. Relationships, employment and health are just a few areas that substance abuse can affect. Come and learn to walk in the freedom Christ promised.

Overcomer is a ministry that comes alongside women who have been abused – by bringing God’s Word to help heal deep wounds, refocus faith, restore hope, ignite passion, and find purpose. Abusive experiences leave wounds lasting decades after the trauma of abuse is over. Survivors often move on, but are left overwhelmed by shame, fear, low self-esteem and powerlessness. This recovery ministry helps survivors build resilience and healing through self-reflection and self-awareness.
