Word By Heart

bringing the words of jesus to life

Course Description.

Word By Heart is training story tellers- bringing the words of Jesus to life by bridging cultures and languages. Word By Heart is a program used to “rememberize” scriptures. The goal of this course is for the scriptures to become so real that we remember them and share them just like events and experiences in our own lives. You will become like an eyewitness to Jesus’ story, experiencing him through your own imagination…as if you literally walked with him and saw the eyes of the blind opened.

This course is about knowing Jesus personally and sharing him in a unique way through the prism of your personality, humor and language; while still using the exact words of scripture. All ages, starting as young as eight years old, are invited to come and join us on this journey. Additionally, although the lecture phase is given in English, you will learn and share the stories in your own native language.
