Berea Project

They received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. -- Acts 17:11

Berea Project is a site dedicated to going back to the Bible and examining it as the primary source for what we believe. The site contains resources and articles designed to help anyone who desires to study the Word of God. We are also creating tools to help ministers teach God's Word to others.

This site is under construction. We have been working on our layout and are about finished. We will start adding content soon. For now please enjoy the devotions that we have so far. Feel free to email me at jbatchelor@bereaproject.org if you would like to contribute your own articles, sermons or other materials. I have forms on several sections of the site asking for feedback and ideas specific to those areas of the site as well. 

Update - 3/12/15

We are still here

The last few months have been incredibly busy for me. I have completely overhauled the network and most of the programs at the Library that I work for. Unfortunately this means I am way behind where I was hoping to be with Berea Project. We are still marching forward but there have been some priority changes.

Bible and Bible Reading Programs

This section is taking much longer than expected and I do not want to hold the whole site up for not having these things completed. For the time being I have moved the tab to these areas of the site to a private location until they are ready to be used.

Podcasts

One of the things I was hoping to accomplish this year was the introduction of a few podcasts. Initially I was going to wait until the site was fully functional before doing so. Since there is still so much to do on the site I have decided that I am going to go ahead and launch 2 of the podcasts that I had planned.

  • Berea Weekly: Berea Weekly is a podcast that will highlight articles and ideas that I have encountered in my studies. Each week I will present 5-7 articles that struck me and have a discussion topic. My prayer is that this podcast will be useful those studying the Word of God and will encourage writers to continue ministering to the community.
  • Sermons: Some Assembly Required Sermons: Some Assembly Required will take sermons I have prepared and break them down to their essential parts. I will take a topic or even a sermon series and give you the scriptures, main points, and possibly a Keynote or PowerPoint to work with. Its purpose is to give other ministers a launching point for their own messages.

Look for these to start being released in the next few weeks.

Please email me at jbatchelor@bereaproject.org if you would like to contribute your own articles, sermons or other materials. We are developing a community of quality writers and christian content creators. Content guidelines are coming but are not in a written form yet. Please stay tuned.
