We know that God’s Word is alive and active – a powerful weapon that is used by God in the life of the believer to bring encouragement, direction and correction – transforming us into the likeness of Christ, equipping us to fight the enemy and helping us grow in our relationship with our Almighty God. But we also know that it can be difficult to really understand what the scriptures are saying and how they apply to our lives in the 21st century. And like many people, we understand the challenge in finding the time and motivation to dig deeper into the layers of depth and meaning of the bible.
The heart of Jubilee Word Studies is to come alongside believers to encourage and inspire their engagement with God’s Word by presenting biblical teachings that are relevant, that give participants a thorough understanding of a book’s context and that equip individuals to explore what’s in the scriptures for themselves. We seek to create a learning environment that fosters discussion around the content and application of the Word. At Word Studies we like to use a variety of teaching methods to connect with people’s learning styles and we aim to foster a community where people feel safe to ask their questions and where every participant is encouraged to contribute.
We love to see people’s passion for God’s Word grow and their relationship with Him and His family deepen.
“Jubilee Word Studies have partially fulfilled my deep longing to go deeper into [God’s] Word and in my walk with Him – a longing which I have sensed from the Spirit for some time. Not only have I learned so much about the books I have been able to study in this way, but I have been spurred on through them to take greater time to study the Word for myself more deeply in my own personal time at home. And as if that wasn’t enough, it has been an absolute treat to get to know some of the School of the Word students better and to meet other people in our Jubilee family… I have found that Word Studies has been a tremendous tool for helping me to build relationships in the wider church body.”
