Helping support one another for the kingdom

This year we launched a brand new series of emails that is focused on leadership.  Over the last 30 years Precept has trained thousands of leaders in our leadership training workshops.  Our goal is to better engage leaders and our monthly Leader Connect emails will be one of many ways we interact with you.

Impacted by the book Romans
Two years and four studies to complete one book of the Bible? Yes, we were certainly intimidated. However, after reassuring ourselves that we were only committing to Part 1 for now, we decided to take the plunge. And oh, how glad we were that we did!

Being a Precept Leader during a pandemic
In my short time of being a Precept Leader, I have learned so much about God’s Word, the Inductive method, and facilitating Bible studies during a pandemic. Although meeting online has been a bit of a learning curve, it has also been God’s plan to increase the study of his Word.

From knowledge to a passion for teaching

I began with Precept Ministries in April 2020 as soon as the pandemic hit. It is quite an incredible thing once a believer learns how to dig for themselves because it unlocks the treasure of God’s Word. My eyes have been opened, and the Lord has used this knowledge to increase my passion for teaching others.

Hunger for God's Word

In the mid-1980s, when we were first in Kenya, my wife led several Precept Upon Precept studies with college students, starting with Thessalonians. The college students would regularly ask if the study could be held several nights a week instead of just once per week. These are the examples of a hunger for God’s Word that amazed us.  However, it is not always about numbers.

The Power of God's Word

Although I have been leading Precept studies for about fifteen years, this year, probably more than ever, I have seen how effective the inductive study method is. Despite the simplicity of what we do as we observe, reflect and discuss God’s Word, I continue to marvel at how God is working to bring insight and change — not only in myself as I study but in the lives of those who study with me.

How to disciple your students with Sandra Loewen

Discipleship is more than leading a weekly class. God was teaching me that He does not call us to be all that we can be, all on our own. Instead, he calls us to pour ourselves out for others like a drink offering. I realized that not  to make disciples (in the Spirit’s power) is to disobey Jesus.

Creative Questions with Carol Folkeringa

It is super important for students to keep reviewing and reinforcing what they’ve already learned and use that knowledge as a basis for what they will learn. But can I just say — don’t these kinds of questions sometimes get B.O.R.I.N.G?  Still, I wonder: could we do the review in a more interesting or engaging way to help students remember without repeating the same questions every week?
