Have you ever wondered, “Is there more?”

Dunamis Basics opens a gateway into a broader, deeper, richer, and more dynamic life of discipleship, inviting you to step into a fresh adventure of faith.

When Jesus sent his followers out to advance his Kingdom, he also promised to give them the help they needed – the power of His Holy Spirit.

Dunamis Basics provides a balanced, biblical, and practical foundation for understanding who God the Holy Spirit is and how we can cooperate with him.

The lessons are designed to lead to an encounter – a life-changing experience with God as, together, you apply what you learn.

These four courses are designed for small groups who wish to learn more. Each course includes 10–15-minute videos, a workbook for participants, and a guide for facilitators.
