  • Faith Lessons: In the Dust of the Rabbi

    Faith Lessons: In the Dust of the Rabbi

    Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God’s Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible’s fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the Scriptures’ significance for modern believers. These sessions take you on a journey to the land and culture in which the disciples learned to follow Jesus, their Rabbi, so closely that they were covered by the dust kicked up by His feet. Filmed on location in Galilee, Priene, and Didyma, these illuminating “faith lessons” afford a new understanding of the Bible that will ground your convictions and transform your life.

  • Breathe

    Breathe

    Busyness and clutter. They find you. Stalk you in the wee hours of the night, keeping you awake and uneasy. They corner you and demand more time, money and energy than you have to offer. The solution has been right in the Bible all along. Priscilla calls it the ‘Sabbath Principle’. This practical topic can’t help but challenge! Sign up - refuse to go on with life as usual.

  • The Quest

    The Quest

    The crooked punctuation mark at the end of a sentence speaks of curiosity, interest and perhaps doubt. A question is an invitation to vulnerability and intimacy. The Quest is a challenge to accept the invitation. This study is a temporary detour from Beth Moore’s usual approach in her studies in order to focus entirely on one colossal goal: to offer an excursion packed with Scripture and set up specifically to increase an individual’s intimacy with God. It’s about you and God.

  • It's Not Supposed To Be This Way

Learn how to stand through uncertainty and trust in God’s goodness.

    Women everywhere marvel at those "good girls" in Scripture - Sarah, Mary, Esther. But on most days, that's not who we see when we look in the mirror.
