Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage! 

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

“Acts of the Apostles” Study Receives Imprimatur!

Acts study receives Imprimatur Cavins Gray ChristmyerDear Friends, I'm happy to let you know that on Friday, July 6th, "The Acts of the Apostles," which is part of The Great Adventure Bible Study program, was granted the Imprimatur from the Catholic Church. We are thrilled with the response The Great Adventure studies have received around the country. This coming fall we will be rolling out two new studies: Exodus and 1 Corinthians. Both of these studies were developed by my colleague Dr. Tim Gray. I pray that the Lord will continue to use the studies to conform people to Christ and as always embrace the beauty of the Catholic faith. Praise the Lord!

Hi Mr Cavins,Thank you for your's and Emily words of wisdom & encouragement to my family regarding adoption.

My ? is how long are your video discussions on the study of Acts? We've been using CSS for many years and find your studies much more helpful, however, we have a time limit on our use of the parish rooms. Are they 45 min or less? Then we'd be able to use them. Our format is as follows: 915am gathering of everyone. 930-1030am small group discussions on the week's lesson. 1030-11:15am everyone gathers to watch the videos. Would your study work with that format? We ARE doing Acts this fall! :) Thanks!

Yay!! Another great Bible study affirmed for its solid Catholic teaching! We are all blessed by this good news. God is SO GOOD!

I will be doing this course in two weeks I am so looking forward to doing the Acts of the Apostles. I can not thank the Lord for the gift of the word brought to me by Jeff and His associates. They do more good then they could ever imagine.
I encourage everyone who needs to answer the question of "Who am I and why am I here." The Timeline Bible study course will answer many questions as to who you are in God's eye's.
Bible study is the very foundation of the conviction of faith that we are all called to have.
God Bless and be with all of you.
