Can I purchase your books as an e-book?
+
Because of the unique design and interactive nature of our workbooks we have decided not to pursue digital books at this time. As an alternative, we offer an online e-version of our 40-day challenges that will cover much of the same content to preserve the interactive nature of the content. It will be available for purchase soon.
What’s an online challenge?
+
An online challenge is our digital e-version of our workbooks. An online challenge will give the opportunity for you to jump into one of our 40-day challenges digitally. It’ll feature a video every day and much of the same content that is covered in our workbooks. In addition, the challenges that we give each day through our workbook, will also be given through the online challenge. While we believe it is best done in 40 consecutive days, the course is designed that you could do it at your own pace. If you’d like to see a sample of the video content, click here. It will be available for purchase soon.
What is unique about the Red Letter Challenge workbook?
+
Red Letter Challenge focuses on Jesus' commands to His disciples. As Pastor Zach Zehnder examined all that Jesus said to His disciples, he found five principles most important to Jesus: Being, Forgiving, Serving, Giving, and Going. We believe that helping people in these five areas will lead to incredible spiritual growth for the people in your church. For more about the RLC book, go to this link.
What is unique about the Being Challenge workbook?
+
Being Challenge is a book that is designed to give you targets to hit as you grow in your relationship with God. Jesus was the only person in perfect relationship with God, so the book focuses on five keystone habits that Jesus practiced and encourages its readers to know these habits and to practice them as well.

What do you suggest for a solid promotional plan for launching a 40-day Church Challenge?
+
We suggest at least a 4-week lead-in time with the books at your site. We always offer a FREE promotional video you can use, as well as a host of graphics like flyers, posters, slides, etc. in our FREE graphics package in the Free Resources menu.

How will this increase small group engagement?
+
By having pre-made, quality RLC Small Group Videos and Guides orBC Small Group Videos and Guides, and following our promotion plan, we believe that your church will see significant growth in your small groups. Churches that participated in the RLC and followed our promotion/distribution plan see an average of more than 40% increase in small groups and some have more than quadrupled. Smaller churches that didn’t have small groups used RLC to launch their small groups, and even large churches saw growth many times over 40%. Learn more about how this can increase small group engagement by watching this short video here.
When is the best time to launch a 40-day church challenge?
+
Check out this video hereto hear Pastor Zach talk about the best times to launch a 40-day church challenge. These are the 5 best times we've seen to launch a 40-day church challenge: 1. Beginning of Year: You can promote heavily in December and at Christmas and build some serious momentum in the new year. 2. 40 Days prior to Easter: Many churches will encourage people to give up something for the 40 days of Lent. We love this practice, but also, we've seen many churches encourage their people not just to give up something, but to start something new as well. There is nothing better to start than putting the words and habits of Jesus into practice! 3.40 Days after Easter: You can promote heavily at Easter and really give your church something exciting to come back to the next week. Usually a church will have 6-8 weeks left after Easter while families are still in school and this can provide some great momentum going into the summer months. 4. Summer: While most churches decrease in attendance in summer months, the RLC is a great opportunity to start the summer with a jump, not a slump! 5. Fall: Weekly worship attendance is normally at its strongest in the Fall. Why not start the fall with a powerful 40-day church discipleship challenge? We encourage a start time any time after the school session is back and encourage churches to wrap up by Thanksgiving.
How do you suggest incorporating student ministry into our 40-day church challenge?
+
We believe that children and youth can and do have what it takes to put the words of Jesus and the principles of RLC into practice. In the past, we’ve seen student ministries (both middle and high school) interact very well with our workbooks and resources. The content is simple to understand, but challenging in its practice. It is written in a simple-to-understand way that youth and adults can both understand. Hear Pastor and Author Zach Zehnder discuss how to involve student ministry more by watching this short video here.
How do you suggest incorporating kid’s ministry into our 40-day church challenge?
+
For all of our challenges, we create a FREE RLC weekly kid's curriculum and FREE RLC weekly kid's curriculum to be used on Sunday mornings for your kid’s ministry so that the kids are learning the same main principles as the adults. We have also written a companion Kids workbook that targets K-5th grade. It mirrors the themes and days of the RLC workbook, but is written specifically with a K-5th audience in mind. Therefore, the devotions and the challenges are more kid-friendly. Also, based on how children best learn, there is an incredible narrative woven throughout the book to help kids engage with the content even more. Because of its nature to challenge children, we do highly suggest parent involvement, no matter if it’s a 1st grader or a 5th grader. Hear Pastor and Author Zach Zehnder discuss how to involve kids ministry more by watching this short video here.

Can I use the small group resources without the workbooks?
+
The small group resources were initially created with the intent of using them alongside the corresponding 40-day workbook, therefore, we highly recommend purchasing the workbooks to go along with it. Great news! We have a small group pack of books, along with a DVD, and wristbands already discounted and ready to go in our SHOP. Without use of the workbooks on a daily basis in the lives of the individuals of the small group, the small group study guide will have to be somewhat modified.

What size of group is ideal for RLC Small Group studies?
+
We like to model after Jesus in all that we do. He had a group of 12 so that’s the ideal number we believe you should shoot for in your group.
What does it look like to be committed to an RLC small group?
+
Here’s the pledge we ask everyone to take on Week 1 of your small group: • I will be on time and show up with my whole heart. • I understand that this Group is 100% confidential. Whatever is shared in the Group stays in the Group. • I will respect other Group members by participating openly and speaking honestly, without dominating the discussions. • I will not try to fix people, preach a sermon, or give unsolicited advice. • When I share in the Group I will share primarily about myself and not about others. • I will trust God to work in all of us as we become more like Jesus!
