A Resource Center for Life-Long Christian Education

from Sep 16, 2013 Category: Ministry News

The year was 1977. Students had been visiting the Ligonier Valley Study Center for six years, and many people were hearing about us for the first time.

So, we published a statement in Tabletalk that defined Ligonier Ministries for new contacts: “A Resource Center for Life-Long Christian Education.”

That phrase still defines Ligonier. We proclaim God’s holiness so that Christians may know what and why they believe, and how to defend and share it. In so doing, we produce Bible teaching resources to help the church disciple the nations.

Did you know that Jesus had more than twelve disciples? In biblical categories, the Twelve were disciples who held the office of Apostle. This office has passed away, but we are each called to be a disciple. In Greek, disciple means “learner.”

Each of us must be a disciple—a learner growing in Christ. Ligonier serves the church at this point. As a Christian resource center, we seek to help all people learn about Jesus.

I want to remind you of the five men who have joined Ligonier to assist me, our board, and our senior management team by producing new teaching series. Drs. Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Steven J. Lawson, Stephen Nichols, and R.C. Sproul Jr. work with us as Ligonier Teaching Fellows, guiding our outreach into the future.

Expanding our outreach, growing our resource library, and setting a steady course for future ministry — this is my vision and where I’ve focused my effort of late. In fact, we have already aired 7 new teaching series this last year.

So many people around the world are reached with just one teaching resource and with your help we can continue producing and distributing resources by these men and me.

These series are great additions to any resource library and we wanted to give you a special opportunity to obtain one for your personal library. For a gift of any amount this month to Ligonier, we’ll send you a Teaching Fellows DVD series of your choice. You can give securely right here.

These gifted men will aid us in working with the church to equip the saints for ministry for many years to come. Thank you for helping us take sound biblical teaching to the world.
