The leaders Guide provides a step-by-step guide for facilitators using a wide range of material provided to cover the different age groups within the teenage bracket.
2. Living As First man standing
The Church has been very slow in acknowledging and addressing issues around domestic violence. This Resource was written with the collaboration of Restored to enable men in the church, including church leaders, to respond to and address domestic abuse within their own churches and wider society. It is intended to raise awareness and to highlight some of the areas that need to be considered in making our churches safe places.

The Marriage Course 101 is an adapted version of the Marriage Course for use within rural African contexts. The course is a series of seven sessions where couples learn practical tools to help them invest time in their marriage, heal ways they have hurt each other, discover how their partner feels and much, much more. The course is based on Christian principles but it is designed for couples with or without a Christian faith.
The Marriage Course was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee under Alpha. Family Impact adapted the material in partnership with Alpha International.
