Bethel at TGSP Headquarters

Email info@simplythestory.org for more information.

Join Simply The Story in Hemet, CA for an in depth weeklong workshop to train up leaders to carry out the teaching of scripture to all.

Simply The Story is Inductive Bible Study – Oral Style. The Simply The Story approach to Scripture seeks to address the reality that a vast majority of people throughout the world either must or prefer to learn in an oral style. Even though Simply The Story is an oral method of studying Scripture, Simply The Story takes the task of studying the Word very seriously. The accuracy of the spoken Word is stressed. Through guided discussion, significant depth of understanding the meaning of the text is reached. The truths of Scripture are discovered and then applied in the lives of those participating in the study.

Those trained in the Simply The Story method are equipped to tell Bible stories in an accurate, engaging way, lead deep, interactive discussions, use stories in life and ministry, reach out with the gospel in conversational ways, and replicate and multiply these skills in others.

See the website below for information on registration and further details about the ministry of Simply The Story.
