What is Story-Formed Life?

Story-Formed Life (SFL) is an immersive, interactive, and life-changing 11-week small group experience. Regardless of where you are located, you can adapt the Story-Formed Life experience for your church congregation or small group.

Why Does It Matter?

We all know the mission is to make disciples. For organizations in a modern, western culture this is also the biggest struggle. So many of our cultural norms, even in church culture, are extremely different from the life of radical discipleship that Jesus envisioned.

The Story-Formed Life experience is a unique tool for organizations that helps people move from passive, self-centered consumers to active, radical disciples who give up everything to follow their Master.

Why Is It Effective?

Most Christian teaching is divorced from narrative. Jesus’ primary teaching tool was stories, yet in our western culture, lecture with bullet points is our primary method. Stories have power to change people and the Bible is a Story, one that many people have never truly heard. SFL takes people through the Story from Creation to Re-Creation and connects them to the larger narrative of what life is about and how they fit in. This experience happens in a safe, authentic atmosphere, designed to expose false beliefs and challenge their faith.

How Do I Find Out More?

SFL has been utilized by church staff, small groups, a wide variety of nonprofits, ministry organizations, universities, prisons and extended families. God’s Story transcends barriers — it’s a Story for all.
If your organization is interested in experiencing SFL or adopting it as a tool in your disciple-making tool belt, we’d love to chat.

What other organizations are saying

I can think of no better cornerstone to build a life of faith on…we ask all our leaders who teach or facilitate a group to go through SFL first. There’s been so much pure fruit the Lord has produced through SFL. It’s the most powerful experience anyone can engage in.

Jenny Baker
Community Groups Director at Crossroads Church, Cincinnati

SFL has been a great tool for us because it quickly and effectively immerses those we serve into God’s story. It lays a foundation, or improves an existing one, and has accelerated the deepening of one’s faith and the motivation to make disciples themselves!

Nate Sallee
NKU Area Director, Fellowship of Christian Athletes

SFL shaped my faith in a way that is difficult to describe. God moves through His Word and SFL gives you an opportunity to dive deeper than any Bible study I have ever been a part of. It’s bigger than just a Bible study… SFL shapes you.

Adam Leigh
Senior Minister, Nicholson Christian Church

I have yet to find a tool that does a better job of presenting the foundational truth of God’s Story … It has caused us to rearrange our lives for the author and main character of the Story, and our entire family is better because of it.

Grant Dawson
Founder of Reset Ministries

What was I going to receive in an 11-week study that I didn’t get out of a four-year Biblical Studies degree? Turns out, a lot. Experiencing SFL for the first time was a major game changer in my faith.
