Ronnie Floyd Blogs About Bible Studies For Life

Fall 2013, LifeWay Christian Resources will nationally launch Bible Studies for Life, an ongoing Sunday school and small group curriculum series for all ages. Pastor Ronnie Floyd is serving as general editor for Bible Studies for Life, which has been thoughtfully organized and designed to help the local church meet the spiritual needs of its members and engage unreached people in its community with the Gospel.

“The number-one benefit of this curriculum series is it will be an experience ‘where the Bible meets your life’,” Floyd said of the curriculum. “Weekly, we will communicate the power of Christ as people engage both their spiritual community and this Christ-less culture.”

In his role as general editor, Floyd cast a vision from the onset of the project to enlist a diverse, gifted, and responsible advisory council of leaders from all segments of the local church to help he and LifeWay create a curriculum series that addresses the challenges of daily life.

“Without any doubt at all, this is ‘from the church to the church’ as spiritual leaders from all walks of life have poured their intellect, heart, and passion into this curriculum,” Floyd said.

Floyd and the advisory council structured Bible Studies for Life with three major distinctions:
  1. to serve as a tool that will help churches offer relevant subjects of study and discussion that will help them engage unreached and unchurched people effectively.
  2. to provide an option for the same subject matter to be addressed over a six-week period from both the pulpit and in the small group ministry setting a couple of times a year.
  3. to serve as mechanism to teach people the Word of God from the Word of God by addressing the needs individuals face in life through various books of the Bible — always with a commitment to explaining how the text speaks to real life.
Additionally, Bible Studies for Life will help churches connect the unconnected, strengthen families, and disciple people with wisdom.

LifeWay has Bible Studies for Life sample lessons, resources, and ordering information available here.
