A Spirit-Empowered Church Course Instructors' Resources

Available for download below is an instructors' manual and accompanying presentation slides for the course "A Spirit-Empowered Church."


While the text of A Spirit-Empowered Church: An Acts 2 Ministry Model by Alton Garrison is designed for the individual experience, the classroom setting presents a different type of learning opportunity. To help you maximize your teaching efforts, we have reordered the chapters into six session themes.


Each session guide is divided into 2-3 teaching segments, and the appropriate chapter in the text is identified to aid your preparation. We have also placed a slide at the beginning of each segment that will help your students see which chapter in their text is being addressed at that time. 


  • Session 1: Need
    Chapter 4, 2, and 7
  • Session 2: Potential
    Chapters 3, 5, and 6
  • Session 3: Direction
    Chapters 8, 9 and 10
  • Session 4: Plan (1)
    Chapters 15 and 12
  • Session 5: Plan (2)
    Chapters 13, 14, and 16
  • Session 6: Results
    Chapters 1, 11, and 17


Video clips are also provided to supplement your teaching. Clips are excerpts from the Acts 2 Journey Video Cohort.
