The How People Change Study Guide challenges and equips participants to live out the gospel in their everyday lives. This course helps people to understand the underlying motivations for their actions and gives them specific, practical help in changing long–standing patterns of behaviour, so they grow in love for God and others. Based on principles from the book, How People Change, authors Timothy S. Lane and Paul David Tripp now offer this companion guide for use in church–wide training sessions, small groups, Sunday schools, youth groups, or one–on–one discipleship. Each of the twelve lessons includes teaching, homework discussion, CPR, Central truth/Personal application/Relational application, detailed illustrations, group discussion guide, and “Make It Real” life applications.

How People Change: How Christ Changes Us by His Grace applies and explains CCEF’s foundational model of biblical change from Jeremiah 17 and is meant to be used in conjunction with the How People Change: How Christ Changes Us by His Grace Seminar (DVD).
The twelve lessons describe in detail the heat–thorns–cross–fruit (the three trees) biblical model of change and walk participants through the process of personal change by helping them to take a close look at their difficult circumstances (the heat), how they are responding to those circumstances (good=fruit tree, bad=thorn bush), and how coming to Christ for forgiveness and help (the cross=third tree) brings Spirit–led change of love for God and people.
Participants and leaders will also benefit from the extra material and reinforcement of concepts contained in the book, How People Change, also coauthored by Lane and Tripp.
The study and facilitator guides have been used all over the world to help participants understand the process of biblical change and apply it to one area of their lives through the Personal Growth Project. Participants and leaders will also benefit from the extra material and reinforcement of concepts contained in the book, How People Change, also coauthored by Tripp and Lane.
Who Is This Product for?
The How People Change course is designed to be used in churches, small groups, ministries, and individual discipling to help participants examine the underlying issues that make change difficult and to understand how to go to Christ for the change they desire. It is suitable for laypeople and ministry and counseling professionals.
How to Use this Product:
Each lesson is formatted to last 80–90 minutes and contains the following sections:
The How People Change book, small group resource, and seminar (DVD) by Paul David Tripp and Timothy S. Lane are the first of CCEF’s three core series about gospel–centered change. The second part of the series is the Instrument in the Redeemer’s Hands materials (book and curriculum). The third part of the series is the book Relationships: A Mess Worth Making and the small group resource Change and Your Relationships: A Mess Worth Making both by Lane and Tripp. Each course is designed to give pastors, counselors, and ministry leaders a biblical, Christ–centered, and user–friendly tool to equip laypeople to grow in grace.
The three courses together answer three fundamental questions: Why do people do the things they do? How does lasting change take place in a person? How can God use me in someone’s life to help them grow?
Although each of these series stand alone, it can be helpful to go through them in order – beginning with How People Change, then Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands, and ending with Relationships: A Mess Worth Making.
This is perhaps the best resource out there for groups who want to grow in their faith. The course helps us understand the motivations for our actions before urging and encouraging change through powerful application which retains a strong focus on Christ. The course asks a lot of participants in terms of its challenges and the work we’re expected to put in, but if you have a group who are willing to step up to the challenge, this course will surely be a wonderful time of reflection and change.
