Many Christians don’t engage with the Bible because they don’t know how to. According to Dr. Phil Collins, Center for Scripture Engagement, Taylor University, “Ninety-five percent of Christians say they have never been taught how to engage Scripture.” When we heard this alarming statistic we wondered what we could do to help. The result, the Bible Engagement Workshop – a free online virtual learning hub where participants are equipped to receive, reflect, remember, and respond to the Bible.
The Bible Engagement Workshop takes the form of video blogs using PowerPoint presentations that are around 13 minutes long: “They’re meaty content – cutting the fat and chewing the fact!”
Because everyone is unique, we all engage with the Bible in different ways. To help us connect with the Bible in different ways, the workshops teach a variety of Bible engagement approaches suitable for visual, auditory, reading/writing, or kinesthetic preference learners. In addition to teaching Scripture engagement practices, the workshops provide instruction on the principles and paradigms of Bible engagement.
