“Cycle-Breaker” is a four-week small group study about taking the hand you’ve been dealt in life and refusing to let it define you. No matter what your family is like, what happened in your past, the struggles you face personally, or what people have said about you—God wants to define your identity. By the power of the Holy Spirit, you can overcome, shatter the statistics, break off generational curses, and chart a new path for generations to come for God’s glory. This series is all about real people from the Bible who were cycle breakers, and how you can be one, too!
This series teaches students directly from the Bible with a heavy emphasis on practical application. Students will walk away knowing HOW to become cycle breakers through the hands-on application activities.
