Course Details
The course is designed around eight - weekly sessions. Each includes a testimony time where participants share what Jesus has been speaking to them during the week, a short video teaching session or demo by Tony Stoltzfus, and interactive exercises that get participants coaching each other and praying their desires. The workshop is designed to be done in teams of four, for accountability and mutual support, and many teams want to continue meeting after the 8 weeks are over!

"I loved the book so much... when my sister was over she picked it up and took it home with her--and now she is doing a class on Questions for Jesus!"

"...She said she had not heard God speak to her in twenty years... and in this last session she has heard his voice several times."

A construction worker came to the microphone. ďIíve been telling God for the last year, ĎI donít want you to talk to me. And I donít want to talk to you.íĒ Then he choked up for a moment, and tears began running down his face. ďItís so good to be connected again.Ē

"My times with God are like a fire hose..."

"God met me in places I didnít expect; and I received a perspective that blew the doors off. I come from a conservative background in which I was taught that feelings can get us off track and canít be trusted. I was guarded about that, so when I realized that the training was going to be on going into feelings??? I was not sure what I thought or what to do. But what I came out with was an intimacy with a holy and relational God I have not experienced before." -- Missionary

"Our team is still meeting a year later..."

Jesus is much more tangible and real in my life!

"My experience with the 8 week course I facilitated was incredible. I saw a group of very conservative Christian college students spend the first few weeks trying to get the "right" answer... But then I encouraged them to loosen up and shared some personal (and funny) things Jesus had said to me during the course. One by one they started to hear Jesus. One girl was floored when Jesus winked at her during one of her conversations with Him. What He said was important to her at that point in her life, but what made it "real" to her was the wink.

Questions for Jesus had been transformational for them. The experience of asking Jesus questions and hearing immediate answers to their heart's desires began to replace their knowledge paradigm. They felt loved and connected. They began to move out of their minds to reach out with their hearts. We actually spent the last session talking about how their experience with God had changed their beliefs. I have seen the power of God in this way of heart transformation in my own life. Now, I saw their experiences challenging what they had believed in a way that teaching/preaching never could. Powerfully transforming!"
