Wouldn’t it be great if we could transfer Bible teaching through Bluetooth? What if we could just text Apostolic doctrine for students to download? That would make life easy, but that’s not exactly how it works. Not only are we trying to convey information from Scripture, but our ultimate goal is for those in our care to apply God’s Word to their lives. That requires more than just comprehension or even memorization.
Discussion can help with this learning process because it prompts people to think more deeply about Bible truths. In this month’s video, we share ideas for creating questions that lead to interactive discussion.

Teaching to Transform Hearts: This book makes the case for reviving the teaching ministry of the church. It challenges us to assess our current teaching methods and effectiveness. And it gives us a wealth of strategies for breathing new life into the classrooms of our churches. As we do so, we follow Jesus’ foundational call to “go therefore and make disciples . . . teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19–20, NKJV).
More Than Grasshoppers: Who are you? This age-old question haunts people of every walk of life as we seek to understand our identity and purpose. This book answers that question in a fresh, engaging approach. Theological topics such as being made in the image of God, navigating flesh and spirit tensions, and living out holiness in a healthy body image and in our social media are tackled in an easy-to-read, non-technical format. This book will help you discover your identity as an Apostolic child of God. By seeing ourselves as Jesus sees us—loved by Him, made in His image, empowered by the Holy Ghost, and equipped with spiritual gifts—we can triumphantly live out the purpose He has for our lives.
