image002Fruitfulness on the Frontline

Fruitfulness on the Frontline is an 8-part DVD series for Christians who want to make a difference 'on their frontline' - wherever they are and in whatever day to day situations they encounter. It offers a fresh, simple framework for discovering the rich variety of ways in which God works in and through us. You can explore the session overview and watch some taster clips at www.licc.org.uk/fruitfulness
 
Fruitfulness on the Frontline is produced by our friends at the London Institute of Contemporary Christianity (LICC). The DVD contains 8 short films (8 - 13 minutes in length) which are easy to watch and follow. Session guides, which include discussion questions and a short bible study and a takeaway action can be downloaded from the website here

The course follows 6 'Ms':
 
  • Modelling Godly character
  • Making good work
  • Ministering grace and love
  • Moulding culture
  • Being a Mouthpiece for trust and justice
  • Being a Messenger for the gospel
Transform Work UK recommends this excellent resource produced by the LICC Work Stream. Although it has wider applicability than just the workplace, it is a great tool for use in the work environment, covering many aspects of a Godly character which are so important in living for God in the workplace. This series doesn't focus on big heroic acts that only 'super Christians' might ever hope to accomplish, but on the everyday aspects of life as a Christian that can speak volumes to others even when we don't realise it.

The course is also produced in book form, where the concepts are unpacked in greater depth and more real life stories are related.

Here are two ways this resource might be used:
 

Fruitfulness diss guideHome groups made up of working people

The majority of the true stories featured on the DVD are set in a workplace context, so the discussion questions and Bible studies in the guide are directly relevant. Although sessions 1 and 4 feature stories from a non-workplace frontline (a retiree and a full-time mother) the key concepts can be easily translated for a workplace environment.
 

Half-hour groups held in the workplace

The discussion guide that accompanies the Fruitfulness on the Frontline DVD contains questions for a 75-minute session, but is very flexible. If your group meets during shorter slots (such as lunch breaks), you could spread the material over two sessions by showing the 10 minute film and using a few of the discussion questions in your first gathering and then continuing with the same session the following week moving on to use the Bible study.
