You may have found products on our website that have a higher price tag associated with it that you wish you could add to your digital library, but the cost was simply too much at that time. Did you know that WORDsearch offers interest-free payments on larger priced items?
For a lot of the staff here at WORDsearch, myself included, the days we circle on the calendar and really look forward to are the ones in which we get to host a training conference. Over the past couple years, the majority of our conferences have been held at the beautiful LifeWay facilities in downtown Nashville. However, last week, we enjoyed holding one here in the northwest side of Austin.
Around 60 people joined us for the three-day event, and the four different trainers definitely kept everyone busy and filled with a bunch of new knowledge. While one of the purposes of the conference is to learn more about how to study God’s Word better through our software, the reason I personally look forward to these conferences so much is due to the fellowship.
On a daily basis here at the WORDsearch office, I get to interact with our customers through phone calls and e-mails. But it’s always so inspiring to meet our incredible users face-to-face and hearing about the ministry that they serve. Like any company does, we also occasionally have struggles and difficult times. For us, that statement rings true for the months of June and July as we went through some growing pains with technology. But to finish out the month of July with this conference, my faith in our mission here at WORDsearch has never been stronger. Our mission is to “serve those who preach and teach to change lives.” To meet the users of our software in person and to hear about what they are doing to change lives is incredibly inspiring.
When I first was called into the ministry, my understanding of the Bible was very limited. I was blessed to have a good Sunday school teacher who gave me a good foundation of the Bible. I was also blessed to have a good pastor who knew the word of God. The Lord was still dealing with me because I was hungry to have a closer walk with the Lord, and today I still have this hunger for walking and knowing the word of God. I tell my congregation that there are not enough hours in the day for studying the word of God. I was blessed again when the Lord directed me to another excellent Bible scholar by the name of Pastor Bill; a friend and a brother. God has been good to me.
First off, growing up in the generation that I did, I really connect well with the use of technology. To have the Word of God laid out so simply for me to read and study has truly helped me interpret the Word like I’ve never been able to do before. The use of the ‘Parallel Bible’ feature has been a huge help for me personally in understanding how multiple different translations get the message across. Also, to have my preferred Bible of choice open (HCSB) alongside a couple different commentaries, I have found that my studies have been able to reach a new level of depth, resulting in a much clearer understanding of the true meaning of the Word.
