Into Thy Word Pastor Training
One of the primary purposes and call of Into Thy Word Ministries is to research, develop and provide Pastoral Training Curriculum! We have been training pastors and missionaries overseas since 1988 and we would like to provide you what you need too.
We specialize in developing in-depth, inductive based Bible resources that are carefully researched from Scripture. We use original languages, cultural understanding, investigative logic, serious and critical thinking. We do not base our materials on theories, tends or commentaries. These resources are designed to be used by pastors and Christian leaders so they can in turn teach others these principles of discipleship too.
Just examine our website and for the "Word" format and our main materials, just go to our:
Pastors Page (seen above) (if you have not done so already, please register first, no cost, this is so we can see who and how people are using our materials so we can better serve you).
- Our question to you is, how can we help you in your church and ministry?
- What do you need?
- How can we better help you?
We are here to help equip and encourage you to grow deeper in your walk with Christ so you can be better able to impact others around you.
- We provide discipleship tools and resources for Seminaries, Bible Schools, and Pastor Training Centers all over the world free of charge since 1988.
- We have been teaching people how to study the Bible since 1979!
- Our Purpose is to point to the Supremacy and Centrality of Christ! In so doing help you, your church and ministry be able to expand God's Kingdom by becoming and developing wholeheartedly, fully-engaged followers of Jesus Christ.
- Providing the Bible Study tools you need to have!
- We are here to serve you!
We can't provide you financial assistance and we are very limited in sending someone to you (although sometimes we can), but we can give you the Bible study, discipleship and church leadership curriculum resources that you need to have. So you can be better able to prepare sermons, Bible studies, lead and mange your church and do what God has required and called you to do. And we have spent over twenty years researching and applying the resources we have for you. Most of which is available for free downloadable in "html" and "Word" formats here on our website.
What we need from you is "you" to use us!
Look us over and use the resources we have researched and provided for you. Unlike most other "ministries" we do not sell our resources. This is so you can get the best researched and biblical resources available in your hands to input into your ministry. This is a sacrifice on our part; as we are solely depending on God and others to give so we can keep doing this vital and needed call.
- We need people to translate our materials! If you do translate any of our materials, please let us know and give us a copy so we can make them available to others in your language and culture!
- We need people help others use our materials! If you use our resources, and please do, tell others about them too!
Here is how we can be of help to you:
First, if you are a pastor overseas, church leader, concerned Christian or a Christian mission organization, you may go ahead and jump in and use all you want. It is well organized, just go to the channels on the left hand side and click to take you to the categories that we listed. If there is something you need that we do not have, let us know and we will do our best to find it and get it to you! You may printout any information we have posted, reproduce it, make the needed cultural changes and translate it.
All we ask of you is to keep us in prayer, keep the name and copyright information of our ministry on the resources and tell other pastors and organizations what we have to offer. If you do translate any of our material, please let us know and give us a copy so we can make them available to others in your language and culture!
May we ask that if you are in a pastor or church in the US, Canada or Europe, (you too may use all you want too). Please obey the copyrights and keep the name and copyright information of our ministry on our resources. These materials are not to be sold or distributed, or published without our permission, although you may use them for your personal use or in the church for sermons, Bible studies, Sunday Schools and such. We ask that you consider a donation. These materials have cost us a tremendous amount of manpower and resources that we go ahead and offer them to you upfront for free, while other Christian organizations only "sell" theirs. Nothing wrong with that, but we feel God has called us to do ministry this way, to serve people who can't afford these materials or go to a Bible School.
How can a pastor in India who is struggling to live and provide for his family pay $60 for a set of curriculum when that is what they make in a month? This is why God called us and empowered us to serve you!
It is our goal that you and your congregation is Equipped to be Discipled and Encouraged to grow and develop spiritually. Then help teach others these principles.
Do you want to help support pastoral training overseas, then please let us know! Remember us in prayer!
If you would like to partner with us to give people opportunities and tools so they can learn how to gain those life-impacting insights from the Bible, let us know. One of the great tragedies of the Church today is fewer and fewer people are reading the Bible. Fewer and fewer people are living the life of being His disciples than ever before. Too many Christians tend to be more concerned with who is coming to their church-- and how many are coming-- and less concerned with making disciples, which we are called first and foremost to do. You can be a crucial help to point others to Christ and away from presumptions and false thinking.
If you want to help support us in these endeavors and our pastoral training overseas, then please let us know. Please remember us in prayer!
May we ask that you consider a donation?
We are Reformed in distinction and Evangelical in nature!

Blessings in the name of our LORD!
