Next Webinar: Boost Discipleship Through Group Bible Reading
Time: Thursday, May 24 at 3:00pm CST
Today, Bible reading has largely become a solo sport. When groups interact with the Bible, it’s usually mediated by a Bible study guide or commentary. Glenn Paauw and Paul Caminiti from the Institute for Bible Reading and creators of Immerse: The Bible Reading Experience join Discipleship·org’s Bobby Harrington to discuss the value of “reading big” in community. Pastors report this simplified approach as being one of the most transformational disciple making tools their church has ever used.
Use of Scripture in Jesus’ style of disciple making. IFBR = more authentic experience with the Bible leads to more authentic relationships.
