Into Thy Word Ministries is about Equipping Church Leaders and Pastors to better understand and apply the Bible. 
 
This is crucial to building a personal relationship with Christ and a healthy Church for Christ's Glory. Many pastors are inadequately equipped or have lost their focus. ITW seeks to encourage and equip pastors around the world. You can partner with us, too!

Exegetical Bible Study Methods

What is Exegesis or theDeductive Approach to Bible study? This simply means "to lead out" or "draw out," extracting objectively, in a systematic study, what a text is actuallysaying to its original intended readers in their language, culture, and setting before we can discover what it means.

Monthly Leadership Article 

Leadership Article From 25 years of research! 

 
 
What can we learn from churches that have failures or are disconnected from their purpose? 

This article will explore what God calls, how we are and what we can do with practical and biblical insights to prevent breakdowns and major problems from happening. In Part 2, we will look how to recover if breakdowns do occur.
 
 
 
How to recover your church after a pastor leaves, even in a fall 

The statistics for pastors who fall is about 20%. Nearly 50% of pastors starting out will not last beyond five years in ministry for reasons of burnout and frustration. Just 1 out of every 10 pastors will actually retire as a minister in some form. 
 
 
 
How to rebuild after a pastor leaves, even in a fall from grace. 

To rebuild any church, whether it is from the retirement of a great pastor, the fall of another, a history of spiritual neglect from its leaders, or the slow backslide of apathy or liberalism, we have to be willing to reset. If there is no reset, the congregation will die off. 
 
 
 
Motives and desires all at a convergence and many without an eye to the Word or an ear to the Spirit! 
 
 
 
 
 
It is our VISION and call, and commitment to point the church back onto the path of making disciples. It is our passion and directive to lead Christians away from our false perceptions and into His way.

Church Growth Tip and Prayer of the Week

Ideas to consider: (Romans 12:18; 14:18-19; Ephesians 4:3; Hebrews 12:14)

The number two reason that people leave a church is poor "people skills" of the pastor and/or leadership, because they do not manage the conflicts and gossip! These poor "people skills" will cause the majority of conflicts between that pastor and the people. (Matthew 5:9)

Pray that our Church, Leadership, and Pastoral Staff become more surrendered and poured out to Christ so they can have spiritual breakthroughs by seeking the fear of God and the mind of Christ and the Spirit's leading (1 Cor. 2:16; Gal. 2:20-21).
