Bring an event to your church

Give your people an experience with the Bible they won't forget.

For many believers in America, the Bible sits unread & collecting dust.

Did you know 58% of churchgoers don’t read the Bible or only read it a few times a year? And of Americans that read the Bible, only 11% have read all of it.

Who cares? If people don’t read the Bible, what’s really at stake?

Since biblical study transforms lives and the world around us, we ought to pay attention. For example, biblical engagement leads to…

…confidently living out your beliefs and trusting God to transform lives.
…sharing the good news and love of Jesus while leveraging spiritual gifts for others.
…willingness and follow-through for serving the community and global missions.
…inviting unchurched people to attend a Christian service or program.
…praying for fellow Christians and unbelievers.

We know the transformation is real, but how do we fix the engagement problem?

What if there were a way to inspire Christians to read the most important truth found in the Scriptures? What if we could teach and engage believers in a fun, energetic, interactive way that will result in their wanting to read the Bible for themselves?

We can. And there is.

By unpacking the larger story of the Bible in a fun, compelling, and engaging live event, Walk Thru the Bible connects the dots of the Old and New Testaments telling the larger narrative of the entire Bible. Did we mention it’s fun?

When it’s over, participants are passionate about the living Scriptures. And the truth of the Scriptures is unlocked for unbelievers.

We’ve witnessed people who’ve never opened a Bible begin reading on their own. We’ve watched believers who have lapsed in their spiritual disciplines become reinvigorated and excited to open the Bible once again. We’ve been inspired by the people who’ve walked away from the event sharing the story of Jesus with their friends, neighbors, and family! To top it off, through the years, 3% on average walk away from our live event having met Jesus for the very first time as Savior!

Imagine what your church family will look and feel like when your members are reading and engaging with the Bible throughout each week with newly inspired habits!

So what are you waiting for?

Take the next step for improving your church’s biblical engagement.

“The live event was probably the best, deepest, and simplest teaching I have ever received in my 32 years as a Christian. I would recommend and endorse this for any church, denomination, or individual. Fantastic!” —Pastor Steve Dixon, Freedom Fellowship

Frequently asked Questions

  • How long is a live event? When is the best time to have one? Sunday? After work? Weekends?
    otLIVE and ntLIVE can each be taught in 2.5 hours! The format for these hours is VERY flexible. Most people use a Saturday morning or Sunday morning/afternoon format, but we have taught events in a variety of timeframes. You may want to have the event all at one time, while others like to host them over five Wednesday nights. We'll help you figure out the best system for you.
  • What do we do after the live event? What’s next?
    Walk Thru the Bible is all about igniting passion for God's Word. We know that once that excitement is sparked, you have to keep it going. That's why we've developed God's Grand Story, a comprehensive six-week study that will take you deeper into the story of Scripture. Designed for small groups, God's Grand Story provides everything you need - DVD's for each age group, a guidebook chock-full of additional study material, and an assist for your pastor to bring the whole congregation around the study of God's Word. Visit our resource page to see all of our helpful resources!
  • Can we host a live event if it’s not for the whole church? What about a small group or Sunday school class?
    Walk Thru the Bible events are usually staged for the whole church unless a particular segment of the church has an interest. Often in a larger church, a small group or Sunday school class will be the sponsoring force for a church event. Our ministry consultants will work with you to determine the best structure for your group. Just fill out this form, let us know the highlights, and we'll call you to get started.
  • You really teach the whole Old Testament in under three hours and expect me to remember it?
    Yes, every single detail. Okay, that's not actually true. Not even close. We know the Old Testament can be overwhelming and confusing. That's why we break it down into the major people, places, and events. That's what you'll remember. Why is our approach so highly effective? Because it integrates several learning modes simultaneously, involving hearing, seeing, moving, interacting with others, and strategic repetition. You'll learn the big picture of the whole Old or New Testament and have fun doing it. We promise!
  • My church has a great spiritual growth/education program, so why should we work with Walk Thru the Bible?
    We believe everyone needs not only the details of God's Word but also the overarching story. We've worked with churches with large staffs and strong spiritual growth programs, and we've worked with churches with small staffs just beginning to start their programs. Whether your members are committed to the study of Scripture or are new to Christianity, the old adage holds true—there's always more to learn. Most people, wherever they are in their walk, understand some of the pieces of God's Word. Through our live events, we will teach them the big picture of God's story and provide a biblical framework so they can put the pieces together. This engaging live event will reinforce their Bible knowledge and rekindle or ignite a deeper passion to know and live God's Word.
  • What exactly is a Walk Thru the Bible live event?
    Great question. It's not a class, a typical seminar, or a boring lecture. It is, however, a highly engaging, dynamic, and memorable event that helps you understand God's Word and make the connection between His story and yours. In each of these events, a certified instructor will guide you on a virtual "walk" through the Bible. Whether you are learning the major people, places, and events of the Bible in otLIVE or ntLIVE, or meeting the people in the Biblical Character Series, you'll experience God's story like never before. Find your place in the story with our live events.
  • What’s involved in setting up a live event?
    Once you decide which event you would like to do first, pick some dates that will work for your church. Our ministry consultants will help you with all of the details from picking the format, to promoting the event, to connecting you with the right instructor. Help us help you get connected.
  • How old do you have to be for a live event? Do you have anything for kids? Teenagers?
    There is no age limit for our events. In fact, we have something for everyone at any age and any stage of life. (Most kids are at least elementary school age.) Check out our event descriptions for more information.
  • I’m not really a group person. Will I have fun? Learn anything?
    We know, we know . . . we keep talking about how engaging and fun our live events are. While that sounds great to some people, others aren't so sure. But hold on. We are experts at personality differences (don't believe us? See Solving the People Puzzle), and we have designed our live events to appeal to a wide variety of people—even to those of us who aren't into the whole group thing. Our events are relaxed and low key and you can choose how involved you want to be. Give us a chance—we think you'll be surprised.
  • Won’t I feel silly using hand signs?
    Probably—but only for a few minutes. Trust us on this. Once the event starts you'll have fun, unaware that you are learning the major people, places, and events of Scripture.
  • What makes live events so great? What do you mean when you say live events ignite passion for God’s Word?
    Understanding God's Word is the key to making the connection between a God who is impersonal and far away and a God who loves you and wants a relationship with you. As you're learning God's story, you're developing insight into yours. That's what our live events do—they put the pieces of the Bible together in a way that connects with your head, heart, and hands. Don't just take our word for it though; read here for an example of how a Walk Thru the Bible live event changed a young man's life.
