The Gospel and the Harvest Video Series

We’ve entitled this series Words of Life and hope to take a deep spiritual and intellectual dive into the premiere New Testament passages on the nature of the Gospel and its implications for the lost. This series consists of direct teachings from texts in the Bible on the Gospel. There are 22 separate teachings, 7-10 minutes in length of video with powerrpoint, dealing with a particular issue followed by discussion questions. This teaching represents the “Who’s Who” texts in the New Testament on the transforming power of the grace of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If you want to become better acquainted with and grounded in the images, stories, metaphors, and statements of the Gospel and inspired by the matchless power of Christ, join us.

The world's poor are largely oral, visual, and story-oriented. The Bible Blossom is a visual Bible for these kind of cultures. We have assembled dozens of beautiful images in a way that links the stories of the Bible together. The whole story is connected to show that the Gospel of Christ and His Kingdom is the cord binding all of Scripture together.  We believe that The Bible Blossom will be an amazing blessing to whole church. 

Are picture Bibles just for kids? Do we ever outgrow stories? No and No! The Bible Blossom is a visual Bible for everyone, every age, everywhere. When you add up all its parts, the Bible is a wonderful story full of images and drama.

The Bible Blossom was created to equip believers to tell the Story of God in Jesus Christ. It is a visual bible for the millions of believers whose cultures are oral and story-oriented (which is the case with virtually everyone in poverty). Dozens of beautiful images are assembled in a way that links the stories of the Bible together. The whole story is connected to show that the Gospel of Christ and his Kingdom is the cord binding all of Scripture together. We have also created a Storyteller’s Handbook keyed to The Bible Blossom that orients storytellers to the settings, characters, themes, and plots connected with the images.

TUMI Resource: Ripe for Harvest

For more than forty years, World Impact has been dedicated to honoring and glorifying God and delighting in him among the unchurched urban poor by knowing him and making him known. Our vision is to recruit, empower, and release urban leaders who will plant churches and launch indigenous church planting movements. Our Evangel School of Urban Church Planting trains church planters to plant healthy churches among the city’s poor, applying biblical wisdom in order to effectively evangelize, equip, and empower unreached city folk to respond to the love of Christ, and take their place in representing Christ’s Kingdom where they live and work.

This guidebook, the official text of the Evangel School, outlines a process of church planting that respects the unique cultures, environments, communities, and situations reflected in urban America. The PLANT approach outlined provides practically wise and spiritually vital instruction to ensure that urban church planting teams will neither fail nor blunder as they seek to engage needy yet spiritually ripe unreached neighborhoods. Filled with devotionals, seminars, exercises, and worksheets, with dozens of graphics, diagrams, and articles, this rich resource will empower church planting teams to design a strategy consistent with the vision God has given them – the kind of strategy that results in the creation of healthy, Kingdom-declaring churches, and the launch of reproducing church planting movements. Use this handy manual to engage your community with creativity and wisdom, planting the church God called you to plant.
