Learn more about offering the study


An After the Boxes Are Unpacked leader or facilitator who registers her group with Just Moved Ministry is offered one-on-one guidance, teaching tools and ideas, a monthly newsletter, and promotion of her class on the Just Moved Ministry website and Facebook page. Posters and brochures for you to customize and publicize your study are available as well.

The study is available in two formats

In each case it is recommended that members of a study group have their own copy of After the Boxes Are Unpacked and a Newcomer Study Guide.  These essential resources will enrich the experience of each woman and help to facilitate spiritual and emotional growth. These resources can be purchased together at a discount in our Participant Bundle.

1 Virtual

Just Moved Ministry is always putting together small groups (4-5 members with one facilitator) made up of women who have contacted us with a desire to participate. A study group could also be formed by a facilitator who already knows a woman or women who want to go through the study with her.

Our Virtual Study Complete Facilitator Bundle provides the resources you need to facilitate a virtual After the Boxes Are Unpacked study group. The resources included in this bundle will guide you and give you confidence as you encourage and guide the women in your group.

I think what surprised me the most…was just how quickly the ladies clicked! I was concerned that it would feel sterile without much of a “human touch.” I couldn’t have been more wrong! There really weren’t any awkward pauses. Everyone was very eager to read the text and begin friendships with one another. I think the friendships were really timely in their lives and provided a lot of encouragement.” Traci, Online Facilitator

[The After the Boxes study] creates and cements friendships for the long haul. The study materials work seamlessly with an in-person group or with an on-line group. We are grateful for your support roles, especially your prayers. It was amazing how we touched on something that our group needed each and every week. Every time we met, we came across a particular point that was relevant and specific to these ladies. Leah, Cove United Methodist Church, Owens Cross Roads, AL
