January Update from Douglas Jacoby's International Teaching Ministry Featured

Douglas JacobyHello from Atlanta, and Happy New Year.

After our return from Britain, the main project this month has been teaching Portuguese and Spanish-speaking leaders in the Miami School of Missions, a training program with UN-style translation. We've also just come off an excellent weekend at our home church, North River, with Guy & Cathy Hammond of Strength in Weakness Ministries. Hope your new year (and any new resolutions) are going well. 

We've moved to a new plan. Instead of monthly, the bulletins will now go out weekly. The biggest change: more teaching material. Every issue will contain something to study: a theme to pursue, an idea to chew on, a podcast to listen to, an interesting book to study, a tip for outreach or personal devotions, or some other practical for your Christian walk.

Romans series

For example, this week I wanted to call your attention to a meaty podcast series.

Since I started writing for the web in 1998, the amount of material has grown to about 10,000 pages. There are articles, Q&As, a Women's Corner, and podcasts -- lots of them! So if you'd like something meaty for your personal devotionals, please take a look at Romans A-Z. The series (26 lessons) might be especially useful if you're searching for a Bible project that can last a few weeks. In fact, there are a number of other multi-week series available, too.

Study tour: Germany & Switzerland

Biblical Study TourFinally, the 2015 Biblical Study Tour will focus on Reformation Church History. We will cover all parts -- Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, and even the Radical Reformation (Anabaptists -- "re-baptizers"). History affords perspective. And it's inspiring to realize how valiantly believers struggled to break out of unhealthy medieval Christianity into a more biblical faith! If you're interested, please click here. Hope to see you in Germany & Switzerland!

Thank you
