30 years ago, in January of 1989, a small seed of a Bible study began in my north Atlanta, Georgia neighborhood. Little did I know that it would grow and multiply into a global movement. On May 5, 2010 God gave me the vision for NBS2GO: Neighborhood Bible Study 2GO. In 2013, nbs2go.com was launched.

What started with women inviting neighbors to study Scripture in their homes has spread to men, couples, students, co-workers, friends, and family - gathering to discover God’s life transforming truths. Bible study groups have expanded from neighborhoods to workplaces, coffee shops, dorm rooms, senior living centers, and more.

Housewarming Gift Ideas

Here's a fun idea for you and your neighbors!Plan ahead by dropping your friends a note with the idea and a list of things that can go into the jars.  Schedule a date, (at your regularly scheduled NBS would be perfect!)  Gather the supplies and get creative!You can make several at a time and have them on hand for the new neighbors when they move in - and even for those that are moving out...

Jan's Story: My Heart Began to Heal

Following the tragic loss of one of my children in 1992, I was invited by a neighbor to attend Debbie McGoldrick’s NBS. Through understanding God’s presence and purpose in trials and receiving the encouragement and love of neighbors, my heart began to heal. I know personally the power of NBS to change lives and grow women in their faith journey. I began an NBS when I moved to a new neighborhood in 1998, and I am passionate about making NBS available to women at all stages of life. Whether they are exploring the Bible for the first time or desiring to grow in their faith, women love to meet in the comfort of a neighbor’s home to study and discover together God’s life-transforming Word.“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34 NIVTo watch Jan tell her story in her own words; click here:  Jan's Story To subscribe to this blog, click here and enter your email on the right, then click “subscribe.”

Weary in the Waiting? Try Welcoming!

WELCOME!

Weary in the waiting? Try welcoming. 

Waiting….it’s something not many of us do very well.For years I waited, prayed, claimed God’s promises, fasted and prayed some more. Things remained the same year after year….my prodigal child was still wandering, and I was becoming weary in the wait!While meditating on Hebrews 11:13, God spoke directly to my weariness and gave my waiting “wings” as described in Isaiah 40:28-30. The verse follows with my thoughts in italics.All these faithful ones died without receiving what God had promised them, (Wow, if these great heroes of the faith didn’t live to receive all God’s promises to them, who am I to demand to receive it in my lifetime?) but they saw it from a distance (Yes, I could clearly see, by faith, from a distance, my prodigal child’s return.) and welcomed the promises of God. (Here is where I was absolutely stunned and prayed, “Father, please teach me what it means to welcome Your promises in my child’s life.”)The very next week my brother’s family was coming for a visit. The excitement I had in their coming visit energized me as I prepared to welcome them into our home. I didn’t worry or pray for them to get to my house faster….I just enjoyed waiting and anticipating our time together.This experience began to teach me how to welcome God’s promises. My prayers turned from, (Father, please return my child, I beg you to do whatever it takes) to welcoming (Thank You, Father, for what You are doing in my child’s life that I cannot see, feel or experience).Is there a promise God has given you that He wants you to try welcoming?Who is a friend who is weary in their waiting? Give them the wings of welcoming!

John 4:46-54;  6:56;  Romans 4:20-21;  Hebrews 11:8-16

What is NBS2GO?

NBS2GO = Neighbor Bible Studies 2GO - nbs2go.com is simply the packaging of ideas, resources, and inspiration to equip believers to launch and multiply Bible study groups.


What's the big deal about a Bible study group?

Like a one-room schoolhouse, a Bible study group brings together a wide range of seekers and Christ-followers to study, discuss, and encourage one another toward life application of God’s Word. This blending of spiritual maturity levels creates a dynamic, life-transforming community. Friendships are formed, and group members are equipped to minister to others where they do life. Life transformation and multiplication!

NLT Scripture references on nbs2go.com and in publications, unless otherwise noted.
