The 3 Minute Stir is a series of (usually monthly) short videos meant to stir up your thoughts around a diverse collection of biblical themes.
These videos have been used for small group discussions, youth/young adult gatherings, and as resources for preaching. We hope they will be helpful to you personally and in your ministry setting!

UPDATE: We have just launched “Stir Companion” PDF documents with discussion questions and other resources. Click on the links to download.
