This community of believers reminds me how much Jesus loves and care for me. When I have doubts about my faith, my brothers and sisters always encourage me, and remind me that God sees the small things that I do in his name and that brings him joy. What I enjoy most is that this is an open forum. We are free to speak about anything that is on our mind.

3. Context

Consider Genre, Author's Intent & Background

He combines the right amount of cross referencing, depth and passion to motivate attentiveness and the desire to learn. He works to leave no one behind. He loops back to his main points enough so the main message is not lost in the details.

Bodie has helped bring clarity and fresh perspective to my understanding of Biblical theology: Seeing the Bible as the integrated vibrant beautiful living Word of God.

FAQs

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique.

What's included with Academy membership?

Everything. Seriously! Your Academy membership is your all-access pass all Courses, Workshops, Live Events, and Community Discussions. Members get early access to Podcast Episodes before they get released, post new  discussion topics in the community, and submit topics for future Live Workshops.

Do you sell workshops individually?

We are in the midst of setting up an online store for one-off purchases of Bible workshops and resources. It's not quite ready yet, but it's coming soon.

Do I have to be a professing Christian to join?

Most members of the Academy will likey be committed followers of Christ, but we don't have any faith requirements for membership. Anyone is free to join and remain as long as they abide by our code of conduct. If you are seeking to learn the Bible, but don't consider yourself a Christian, you are welcome to join (and we would love to have you!).

Will my Membership price ever go up?

For those on the annual plan, you lock in your rate for life as long as you keep your membership in good standing. When the Academy price goes up in the future, your price stays the same. For those on the quarterly plan, everyone pays the current rate, regardless of how long your membership has been active.

Is the Academy always open to join?

Yes! Our doors are always open, but the price will continue to rise as the value of the Academy goes up. The more workshops, courses and resources we offer, the more the price will go up, but anyone can join at any time

What tools and platforms does the Academy run on?

The Academy runs on Circle, the gold standard platform for online communities today. You can access it through a web browser by logging in on the You Can Learn the Bible homepage or through the Circle iOS or Android App.

i WANT TO INVEST IN YOU

The You Can Learn the Bible Academy is the community I wanted when I started learning (and later teaching) God's Word.

My goal is to reach those who are excited and hungry about learning God's Word, and those who love and serve their local church through teaching.

If you are ready to make an investment in your faith and knowledge (that will strengthen both you and those around you), then I would love for you to join me inside the You Can Learn the Bible Academy.

Together let's serve and support one another as we seek to advance the kingdom of God with our lives and ministries.

May God Bless you as you seek to love and serve Him more!
