How do I start?
A variety of lessons are offered, ranging from a single lesson that may take 30-45 minutes to complete, to a series of 10-12 lessons on a theme. Some are Bible studies, where you’ll be delving into a particular chapter from the Bible. Others address various issues or themes you may face in your personal and spiritual life.
Step one: Choose your lesson. Each lesson has a brief introduction, and most have eight to ten questions. It may be completed in a single session.
Step two: Type your answers in the response boxes provided within the lesson. There is a place on each lesson where you may share your thoughts, questions and prayer requests.
Step three: Complete the brief questions at the bottom of the lesson,
Step four: Click on ‘submit’ button. Your lesson will then be sent to one of our Study Coaches, who will respond to your completed lesson, often offering additional insights or resources. Your study coach will respond to your lesson and pray for you.
*Please note: Depending on the volume of requests received, the online study coach will contact you within a week or two of your study being submitted.
