Disciple-making is Our Priority

Our focus is making disciples with business professionals, internationals, and adults of all ages. If you share our heart for disciple-making and mission, consider using our easy to use Bible study lesson plans with powerful real-life stories and practical application.

As we continue to serve in our local church, we understand the need to furnish believers with free printable Bible study lessons.

If They Won't Come to Us, We Must Go to Them!

We recognize that people outside the conventional church also have a deep spiritual hunger. Since many will not come to our church events, we must go to them. We all need easy to use Bible study plans to equip believers to reach people where they live, work and play.

For over 20 years, we have devoted ourselves to people development. One of our highest priorities is to support ordinary people with practical, easy to use tools and resources. We understand the need to share the good news about Jesus by using common words and real life illustrations. You'll find our studies engaging, humorous at times, and appealing.

If you can READ it, you can LEAD it!
