Our Top 5 Men’s Bible Studies

  God has given men a great deal of responsibility: we are husbands, fathers, friends, workers, and many other things.  In each of the roles we have, we are often times looked to to be the leader.  In the very least, we have a responsibility and obligation to lead our families.  But we need to

3 Bible Studies on Evangelism

One of the issues that arises for many people in regards to thinking about evangelism is that it is something we have to do. I’ve heard people say “whether or not you have the gift of evangelism, we all have the job of evangelism”. Now as true as that might be, helpful, it isn’t. As

3 Bible Studies on Faith

I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief! – Father of a possessed boy, Mark 9.24 Many of us could echo this sentiment of the father from Mark chapter 9.

3 Bible Studies on Old Testament Characters

Many people try to avoid the Old Testament, maybe unintentionally, feeling that the New Testament is more applicable and relevant to our modern lives.  Paul’s teaching on the fruit of the Spirit is much easier to apply to life than David refusing to kill Saul and cutting only a corner of his cloak.  We can

3 Bible Studies on Missions and Service

All In by Mark Batterson – When did we start believing that God wants to send us to safe places to do easy things? Jesus didn’t die to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous. The will of God is not an insurance plan; it’s a daring plan. It’s time to quit living as
