Spirit-Anointed Teaching Package

“They were amazed at His teaching; He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” (Mark 1:22)
Teaching is to be a time of experiencing God and sensing the life of the Holy Spirit. Learning is to be much more than a study about God. It is to be an encounter with God. These materials teach you how to make every training experience an encounter with the Lord, where each learner receives revelation and impartation from the Holy Spirit.

How to Get the Most Out of This Teaching
The DVDs and CDs correspond with the LEARN Spirit-Anointed Teaching notebook. For maximum growth and internalization, we recommend utilizing it along with either the CD or DVD set. One LEARN notebook for each individual in the group is recommended. The LEARN notebook provides an outline to follow as you watch the DVDs or listen to the CDs. Also included are application exercises and classroom activities. Each family should have one copy of Experiencing God Together which provides additional resources for personal meditation during the week.
For maximum results, draw together some friends into a home group or Sunday school class and watch the DVD sessions over a 3-week period or as a weekend seminar. The DVDs bring an anointed trainer to your group, and your interpersonal sharing gives you instant feedback and confirmation that you are understanding the steps necessary to become a Spirit-anointed teacher.

Details of the Specific Products Included in the Spirit-Anointed Teaching Package
Experiencing God Together
People come to small group meetings expecting and fearing many different things. Some expect a boring lecture. Some hunger for riveting interaction. Some fear a couple of people monopolizing the entire evening and going off on a tangent.
This book teaches how to turn small group meetings into times of dynamic sharing of revelation concerning the real life issues we face daily. It addresses how to get everyone involved, how to limit the naturally talkative, and how to keep things on track.
This book will lead you into learning how to make small group meetings "experiences" rather than simply "studies." Discussion questions and action exercises are found at the end of each chapter. This is recommended for parents, small group leaders, pastors and teachers. You will learn how to create a revelation-based learning experience.
Spirit-Anointed Teaching CD/DVD Set
The CDs are ideal for repetition and review as you drive, work or exercise. Hearing Mark teach this series releases an impartation, revelation and spiritual understanding which, if internalized, will completely transform your life. Mark shares his struggle and story in a humorous and down-to-earth way that relates to every listener. Every time you review this series the Holy Spirit reveals more to you. Do yourself a favor and listen to them over and over until the revelation is complete. Rushing on to another topic without internalizing this truth does not result in cultivating Christian spirituality.
The DVDs are ideal for focused learning with the LEARN Spirit-Anointed Teaching notebook and for use in classroom settings. They are identical in content to the CDs. For maximum results, invite some friends into a home group or Sunday school class and watch the DVDs together. Discuss and practice the principles of Spirit-anointed teaching and share your results together. The DVDs bring an anointed trainer to your group, and your interpersonal sharing gives you instant feedback and confirmation that you truly are improving as a Spirit-anointed communicator! An unbeatable combination.
The Spirit-Anointed Teaching CDs and DVDs are the perfect training in this new teaching style, with Mark Virkler exemplifying it as he teaches you exactly how to do it yourself.
|#||Titles of CD/DVD Sessions||Length|

LEARN Spirit-Anointed Teaching Notebook
This 23-page Life Enrichment And Review Notebook is designed to go along with the CD/ DVD series and/or PowerPoint presentation. If receiving training in a group, we highly recommend that EVERY member of the group have their own copy. It offers you the following four benefits:
Deepened Learning Through Note-Taking
The opportunity to take notes deepens the learning experience. When you write something with your own hand, it is a much stronger learning experience than simply hearing it. God puts a BIG emphasis on writing as a way of learning. Look at His very first requirement of anyone who became a king in Israel:
“Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites. And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes, that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, that he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left, and that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children in the midst of Israel” (Deut. 17:18-20).
Greater Internalization Through Previewing and Reviewing the Key Ideas
The LEARN notebook also gives you an opportunity to easily preview and review the teaching. None of us catches everything the first time through and as you review it several times, you will pick up things you did not hear before. More truths will begin to "click" and more lights come on!
This process of repeated review results in greater revelation and greater personal transformation. Jesus urged us to cultivate and give attention to new ideas being sown in our hearts until they bear a crop of 30, 60 or 100 fold (Matt. 13:18-23). So listen, review and focus until God has granted you personal revelation and transformation! Anything short of this causes the seed to be aborted and die. Hearing without doing is a waste, the Bible says (James 2:17).
Application Exercises Allow God to Speak Directly to Your Heart
Application exercises are included in the LEARN notebook for class times and for increasing personal revelation at home. Hearing a truth is one thing. Letting God speak to you concerning how to apply it in your life is another. These Application Exercises will give you the opportunity to seek God and ask Him what He wants to say to you concerning the truth, and how He wants to see it applied in your life. This is exactly what you need to hear and act upon. This is spiritual growth and development. Please review our short article on "How to Cultivate Christian Spirituality."
Interactive Group Activities Cultivate Sharing of Revelations Together
Suggestions for group activities which promote seeking God together and a lively interaction where people are encouraged to share the revelation they are receiving are also included. This helps avoid lecture which can easily become boring. The activities are well designed so people are not just "spouting off" and sharing ignorance but instead are sharing together what God is revealing to them.

We have trained coaches who have mastered this topic who will commit to working with you for a 90-day period.
