This Lent, Journey into the Heart of the Gospel.

The world today needs real Good News. But the secular culture is stealing the hearts of millions of people with a way of life that cannot satisfy. Do the people in your life know the Catholic Gospel? Have they encountered Jesus in a life-transforming way? Do they know how to share the Gospel with others? This Lent, invite your friends, mission partners and leaders from your parish to join a small group discussing the FOCUS Lent Bible Study on the Gospel message—the kerygmapresented by Curtis Martin and Edward Sri. Participants will…

  • Encounter Christ in a deeper way
  • Discover the amazing work God wants to do in our lives
  • Walk through the Catholic Gospel
  • Learn how to share the Gospel with others

WHAT: An eight-week small group Bible study with Curtis Martin and Dr. Edward Sri on the big picture of the Bible, followed by option for continued accompaniment and practical training in missionary discipleship in the summer and fall

WHEN: February 21 – April 11

  • Watch live on Monday evenings 8:00pm – 8:45pm EST
  • Or watch recorded video at a convenient time for your group each week

WHO: Benefactors, mission partners, parish and pastoral ministry leaders, and our alumni and friends. Ideally, the same group meeting for SEEK could continue meeting together for this Lenten Bible study.

WHY: Many benefactors and parish leaders have expressed a desire to receive some of the training in evangelization and discipleship that FOCUS offers its staff. This is an opportunity to care for our friends and benefactors with specialized FOCUS formative content and draw them deeper into our mission.
