WORD BY HEART
Word by heart helps them know Jesus personally and share him in an unique way by using the exact words of the gospels.
Act like eyewitnesses to Jesus’ story, the greatest story ever told. Word By Heart helps you know Jesus personally and share him in an unique way by using the exact words of the Gospels. You’ll experience Him through your own imagination… as if you literally walked with him and saw the withered hand made whole.
Once you have seen Jesus in this way, your natural memory will be unlocked. As stories become personal, you will simply remember them and then retell them as if they happened to you.
Engaging with Jesus in this way will change you. Jesus lived the most impacting life ever lived. As you draw close to him, he will start to transform you. You will experience a surge of energy for him that will empower you to spread his good news everywhere.
“Word By Heart School” is a 6-month school. The first 3-month phase takes place at the University of the Nations in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. In this phase, the student will learn one of the four gospels by memory. It will be abridged to a maximum 90-minute presentation. At the end of the three months, the student will present their gospel to a live audience.
Although many people couldn’t imagine memorizing a gospel, the cutting edge memory techniques that are applied in the course make it not only possible but also easy. In addition you will learn the gospel in your native language. Although the lecture phase is given in English, you will memorize in your own language. We imagine people doing this in Mandarin, Hindi, Portuguese, Arabic, English, French, German and many more.
The second 3-month phase is when the participants go out globally and present their gospel on theatre stages, churches, universities or even living rooms. The Word of God is powerful and people’s lives change when they hear the Word of God spoken in this way.
Word By Heart seeks to engage people through live “truthtelling” of the Word. Our vision is to see the number of “TruthTellers” multiplied through training. The goal is that they share the Word of God in their mother tongue with their own cultural idiom and humor.
Word By Heart has rippled around the world. So far we have trained over 2,000 people in 35 languages in every continent (except Antarctica). Do you want to join this movement? If so please sign up.
Bring a good sense of humor and a resolve to learn an entire gospel. Everything else will be provided.
