BIBLE STUDY

The Association has many VHS and DVD Bible Studies available for our churches to use free of charge. If you see something that you would like to use at your church, e-mail Jennifer Hutton at [email protected] to find out when it will be available. Some of these studies are designed to be used over a 6-13 week period, so it may take some time to get the study you would like to use. Book as early as possible.

We have Bible Studies by Henry Blackaby, Jim Henry, Johnny Hunt, John MacArthur, Beth Moore, Kay Arthur, Jennifer Rothschild, Charles Lowery, Chip Ingram, Dr. Kevin Leman, Dennis Swanberg, Ed Stetzer, Thom Rainer and many more.  We have studies on marriage, parenting, finances, discipleship, deacon training, small groups as well as studies for men and women.

The following are areas that BR-KC can resource and assist your church. Contact [email protected] to connect for help.

  • The Vision of the Leader – A one day workshop for pastors, staff, church planters, and church ministry leaders. Learn how to discern a vision from the Lord for your ministry and personal keys to implementing it as a leader. Also includes vision development insights and reflection.
  • Developing Your Vision & Strategy for Ministry – An intensive, missiologically-informed workshop. The workshop will result in a contextualized and customized master strategy plan for your ministry. Church planters, pastors and staff teams, and ministry leaders will benefit greatly. There will be extensive preparation and post-workshop assignments. However if you make this investment, you can see the Lord shape and sharpen your ministry with many years of benefits.
  • The Sunshine Organization – The Sunshine Organization was founded by Alisa J. Henley (CEO of  Destiny Consulting, LLC) as a not-for-profit agency with a vision and focus on church, organizational and personal development. The Sunshine Organization has helped church leaders create strategic working plans, develop leadership skills, reduce communication barriers and build high-performance teams. In addition, Alisa can help you with almost any HR related issue you may be facing. From writing job descriptions to developing policies, procedures and ministry handbooks, The Sunshine Organization stands ready to help your church.
  • Legacy Cohort –  The Legacy Cohort is designed to equip and encourage pastors who lead churches of 150 or less. John Mark Clifton, Lead National Strategist for Church Revitalization with the North American Mission Board, is the main leader of these meetings. Pastors, we want to equip you with solid leadership training for revitalizing your church and helping it to be relevant to your community while being faithful to the gospel. Please join us the second Tuesday of every month. We will be meeting at Wornall Road Baptist from 8/11 through 11/10 of 2015. We begin at 10:00 and end a little before noon with lunch provided.
  • Transformational Church – Attendance, budget, and church building size have often been the measures of success for congregations.  But there has to be more to assess.  How do you truly determine whether lives are being transformed?  Combining videos, interactive guides, an assessment tool, and training from a certified Transformational Church consultant, Transformational Church will help your church take steps toward true transformation.
  • Transformational Discipleship – How do people really grow as disciples of Christ?  Transformational Discipleship helps answer that question.  As part of the Transformational Church initiative, this is a guide for church leaders and members to intentionally foster a culture in which people mature in Christian faith.
