<b>Tell Faith-Filled Fish Tales </b> <br><br>We&rsquo;ve all heard them. &#8220;It was this big.&#8221; &#8220;You should have seen the one that got away.&#8221; People love to tell stories of their fishing adventures.

Its companion study guide is complete with a leader&rsquo;s guide and six lessons, including conversation-starting exercises, discussion questions, and application steps. <br><br>Fishing stories.

This DVD is designed to work with the <i>Go Fish</i> <i>Study Guide</i>, which helps you apply the principles of this study to your life. <br><br><b><u>DVD Interior</u></b> <br><br>Part 1: We Were All Fish Once <br><br>The foundation of our call to be &#8220;fishers of men&#8221; is the perspective that we too were once in a position of needing to hear the good news about Jesus. Recalling our own need helps us grasp the importance of answering God&rsquo;s call to &#8220;go fish.&#8221; <br><br>Part 2: Why Fish? <br><br>In our culture, there are so many reasons not to fish that it is important to recall why we need to fish. This message explains that Christianity is based on historical events that must be reported in order to be realized; moreover, Christianity is too counterintuitive to be recognized without help. Unless we tell others about Jesus, they&rsquo;ll never know. <br><br>Part 3: Fish Guts <br><br>Sometimes our fears keep us from sharing the message of Christ with those who have never heard. We must remember that God is in control, and we have been invited to participate in what He is up to. If we are to be fishers of men, we must ask God to enable us to have the courage to say something when an opportunity to share His love is given to us. <br><br>Part 4: Fishing Buddies <br><br>What&rsquo;s the relationship between building the church and being a fisher of men? Fishing was never intended to be a solo mission. The church was meant to partner with us inthe fishing process. <br><br>Part 5: Muddy Water <br><br>Unless we are able to articulate the message of Jesus clearly and effectively, our efforts to be fishers of men will be hindered. Surprisingly few Christians are skilled at making a simple presentation of the gospel. Often, we overcomplicate it. Learn a simple presentation of the gospel that you can easily share with others. <br><br>Part 6: The One That Got Away <br><br>It is easy to become consumed in our Christian world and forget about those who don&rsquo;t know God. It is our responsibility to go back to those people and share what we&rsquo;ve discovered. <br><br><b>Story Behind the Book</b><br><br>Andy Stanley, senior pastor of three North Point Ministries campuses, with a cumulative congregation of more than twenty thousand, has had countless conversations with everyday Christians who struggle to share their faith with confidence and ease. Though not everyone has &#8220;the gift, &#8221; evangelism is something we&rsquo;re each called to. This curriculum was designed to take the fear out of sharing the good news of Christ, and to help you talk about it as naturally as you would that exciting fishing trip last weekend
