"We at Geared for Growth aren't out to change the world, but our experience is that God, in his grace, uses our material in the hands of ordinary people like you and me, to change someone's world."
Geared for Growth Bible studies are a well proven Bible focused resource to encourage people from all walks of life to meet together around God’s Word and encounter Him at a personal level.
Where better to meet with God than in the relaxed informal atmosphere of someone’s home or in your local church. Learning together is the aim, and our discussion style Bible studies facilitate not only learning the Scriptures, but applying their reality to everyday life. As the Scriptures come alive, it’s just wonderful to hear people share about how God has met their need and shown them solutions to various situations. This precious knowledge is passed on to other group members, discipling and equipping them to face similar situations in their daily lives.
Our groups aren’t about the quick fix, many have been running for 10, 20, 30 years. We are about living, learning and walking together in our local communities. We are the local community. We are not outsiders coming in, we are in. And as we learn from God and are built up through gaining a true understanding of His Word and its practical implications for our families, churches, neighbourhoods, towns and cities, we are no longer a people with empty hands, but are fully equipped by Him to be His mature children.
Over the years, many people have shared how they have come to experience the living reality of God when they have joined a Geared for Growth group and had the unique opportunity of meeting with others just like themselves. People appreciate the fellowship and teaching they receive and the opportunity to share from their own knowledge and experience of God. Having this safe place to discuss the Bible and to be given the opportunity to put what they actually believe into words, has helped many to then go on and help their friends, family and neighbours understand what they themselves have experienced in their encounters with God.
Many have echoed the following statements:-
‘I’ve never had an opportunity like this before to talk about the Bible.’
‘I don’t get fellowship like this anywhere else.’
‘The Bible has just become so relevant to me.’
‘I really miss it when we don’t meet together.’
‘I’ve just learned so much since I’ve joined the group.’
Geared for Growth has been in existence for almost 50 years. Over this time we have built up a stock of 53 + titles. Each study has an answer guide at the back to aid the group leader, and many people who are unfamiliar with the Bible find this guide very helpful too. Should you need any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us, we are more than happy to help.
