Intersect DVD Where your Story and God's Story Converge *Review

Intersect DVD (Awaken Movement, July 2015)
Follow the journey of five individuals as they tell authentic stories of circumstances that have forced them to examine how God might fit into their lives.
This five-week small group resource helps spark spiritual conversations. Starting spiritual conversations with those outside of the church is a worthy, yet often difficult and intimidating task. Intersect was designed to help overcome those barriers. It is an easy-to-use resource, perfect for sharing with co-workers, friends, neighbors, and family to enter into meaningful conversations.
Each film is accompanied by thought-provoking questions designed to encourage participants to examine the world in which they live and the life they are pursuing, always ending with a conversation on how Jesus intersects the current topic. Allow this powerful new film resource to engage those you are in relationship with and then propel them forward in their next step with Jesus.

 I watched this with my whole family including the kids. We didn't run into anything inappropriate for them. The seasons were quite short in what you watched on the DVD. It is also quite basic, so works well with newer Christians or youth. It gives a look at how we can help people think more about God. It is not very "meaty" or scriptural deep. Mature Christians will probably be a bit bored.

It comes with a booklet with a few questions to ask your group. I think the leader would do well to maybe prewatch the video session, and come up with some more discussion questions. I fear that the ones provided won't give enough to make a session go long enough. You could really wrap this whole session up in about half an hour. If you desire it short, its' perfect. If you want it a bit longer you may need to add to it. It is also only 5 weeks long, so great for using in between longer studies to just break it up a bit.

Rob Peabody is the cofounder and international director of Awaken, a nonprofit that exists to resource the church for action. Awaken creates resources that inspire, educate, and equip local churches to live as Kingdom-bringers in their communities. In 2011, Rob and his wife, Medea, along with their two boys left his position as a lead campus pastor at a megachurch in Texas to pioneer and lead a church seeking to engage unreached 20s and 30s in northeast London. He is the author of “Citizen: Your Role in the Alternative Kingdom.” Cris Rogers is a writer, pastor, speaker, and church visionary. In 2010, he planted a church in the poorest area of London with a dream for it to be an explosion of joy within the tower block estate in which he works.
