Church of God Men’s and Women’s Discipleship have partnered together to launch an Inductive Bible Study initiative designed to get the constituents of the Church of God involved in direct, inductive Bible study as a regular part of their lives.
Enliven Inductive Bible Study Conference will provide a unique opportunity to learn a direct, personal, inductive approach to Bible Study.
