Word by Heart Seminar

Word By Heart


This seminar is training storytellers - bringing the words of Jesus to life by bridging cultures and languages. The stories will become so real to you that you will be an eyewitness. Once you have experienced the Gospel‘s like this, natural memory is unlocked and you will be able to share a Gospel book word for word in your mother language.

This seminar applies specific techniques for memorizing the Bible that will not only be fun and rewarding for the student, but also easy and more than possible!  Although the training phase will be taught in English, the gospel will be memorized in the student’s native tongue. This is in order that the Word of God would be shared in all languages!  God’s word is alive and active, powerful and moving to those who hear it. We know that lives will change and hearts will burn at the hearing of the gospel in this fresh and profound way.


Act like eyewitnesses to Jesus’ story, the greatest story ever told. Word By Heart helps you know Jesus personally and share him in a unique way by internalizing the Gospels and sharing them word-for-word with others. You’ll experience Him through your own imagination. It'll be as if you were walking with him while he performed many miracles like healing the man with a withered hand.


Engaging with Jesus in this way will change you. Jesus lived the most impacting life ever lived. As you draw close to him, he will start to transform you. You will experience a surge of energy for him that will empower you to spread his good news everywhere.
