Word By Heart helps you know Jesus personally and share him in a unique way by internalizing the Gospels and sharing them word-for-word with others. You’ll experience Him through your own imagination- as if you were actually walking with Jesus himself while he performed many miracles, such as opening the eyes of a blind man!


In this course, you will discuss, debate, and meditate on weekly Scriptures from the gospel, in order to find deeper meaning and understanding of the Bible. Through this, you will have an experience so deep that you will be able to re-tell the stories from the Gospel, word for word in your native language — as if you yourself were an actual eyewitness to the event! In doing this, you will be transformed to be more like Jesus.


You will also learn storytelling skills and practice natural memory techniques – without memorizing! You will learn how to create imaginary memories and see for yourself what the eyewitnesses saw and say what they meant — developing honest, technique-free communication that compels audience attention and understanding of the scriptures!

Word by Heart is about experiencing Jesus through His Word. What if you had lived during Jesus’ time, and had actually walked the streets with him as one of his 12 disciples? What if you witnessed his miracles right before your very own eyes? How would this have affected your life, and the way you relate with the people/world around you? And how would you tell your friends about your experiences with Jesus? As we put ourselves into each of the stories found in the gospel, we begin to see Jesus in a whole new way  and become more like Jesus himself. Be prepared to be transformed through His Word!


In just 12 weeks, your way of approaching the scriptures will be transformed – and so will you! Experiencing the gospel in this way molds us to become more like Jesus. You will develop a deep hunger for more of the Word, and the Word itself will begin to naturally flow out of you as you share your experiences of the gospel with the people around you.
