The mission of Bible Study Media, Inc. is to foster a biblically-literate church worldwide through the production of engaging, faithful, and applicable Christian teaching resources for the Church and individuals.
Bible Study Media, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation in the State of Florida founded in May of 2014 by The Reverend Charlie Holt, who was then the rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Lake Mary, FL and two Christian laymen with a heart to see a renewal of the Christian faith. The organization was initially begun with a challenge to study the Bible and meditate on God’s Word in a year. This challenge was offered through the free website, TheBibleChallenge.org.
Next, Reverend Holt wrote and published the three small group Bible studies in the Christian Life Trilogy in 2015, called The Crucified Life, The Resurrected Life, and The Spirit-Filled Life, and the organization has been growing ever since. Since the launch of the Christian Life Trilogy over 200 congregations around the world and across denominations have engaged with the materials.
In 2016, Ginny Mooney wrote a children’s curriculum version of the Crucified Life entitled the The Cross Walk.
In 2017, Bible Study Media opened a branch in Houston, TX, when Fr. Holt became the Associate Rector of Teaching and Formation at the Church of St. John the Divine.
In June 2017, through a special relationship with New Growth Press, Bible Study Media launched Hearts Alive: A Gospel Lectionary Curriculum for Kids designed for children in both a Children’s Church and Sunday School format. That project still continues.
In 2019, Fr. Holt released his next book, Draw Near: Hebrews on Christian Worship. Work was also begun on a Spanish-language version of the Christian Life Trilogy, and several other exciting new publications coming in 2020.
We are grateful to God for his kindness in the growth of this organization, and the impact he is allowing us to have. To him be the glory!
