Research Methods  The Top Ten Trends Affecting Church Health!
Our investigative focus is primarily a critical and scholarly evaluation on the subject. In addition, we seek primarily biblical, true Truth, thus resulting in an investigation of the relative biblical texts and the context from the view of how it was understood in the time and culture from rigorous and sustained exegetical and inductive analysis.
We will continue the series on the Fruit of the Spirit next month!
Growing in Christ is the key to growing a faith, a familyand a fellowship!

ITW History

You can help us to provide free quality Biblical resources to over 5,000 people each day all over the world. We are teaching thousands of pastors in over 80 countries, and we are greatly under funded. Unlike other ministries, we do not charge for our materials or ask for remuneration.
We Need Your Partnership! Why?
What happens when you support us?
Unlike a lot of good ministries, you are not only supporting us to do ministry, but you partner with us to come along side to do real ministry to other pastors too. You help those in ministry who have no means to go to higher education or receive seminary level educational resources or the means to pastor their flock effectively. A pastor in Central Asia who makes a mere $60 a month can have access to a library of solid biblical resources, sermons and studies as well as practical effectual help to lead and manage their church. You help a person who wants to be a pastor to be trained, such as how to exegete Scripture, prepare sermons and how to grow themselves and their flock in Christ. Thus, you help people like Pastor Narula to not take the limited money to feed his family and divert it to feed his church, now he can do both. You help Pastor Sanjiv to spend the time to council and help his people because we help him administer his church. You help a young man named Babu prepare to become a pastor. You help us stay in full time ministry ministering to over 10,000 pastors worldwide (this does not even include the 5,000 people who use our web resources each day!)!
