My passion and goal is to end Biblical illiteracy.
We live in a time of epidemic Biblical illiteracy, yet knowing the scriptures is critical for life and character. The Bible is the foundation of Western civic values, and it saves souls. As a pastor for 20 years, I have seen firsthand the desire of the people of the church to go deeper in their understanding of the scriptures and the Christian faith—but they lack the tools that will take them there.
While there are many Bible Study courses available for individuals and church groups, many are shallow and do not align with the need to help individuals find a deeper walk in their faith. My goal for Bible Study Media is to solve that. Since the beginning of my ministry I have had a passion to help my congregations find that. I learned a long time ago that for individuals and even church congregations to grow in their faith, they needed more than a popular, short-lived program, but needed sustainable long-term tools that would facilitate Christian faith and discipleship.
Unable to find materials to meet these discipleship goals, it became apparent that I would need to create my own. I discovered that others shared my frustrations even as I talked to Christian educators in children’s ministry. So, with the help of others, I set out to create an engaging curriculum, beginning with children, that is faithful, engaging, that aligns with the church year, making the Bible accessible to the Christian of all ages.
