“WordPartners has crafted (and is crafting) the most effective, affordable, and enjoyable training in biblical exposition to be found anywhere.”
We’re serious about financial accountability and transparency. We “aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man” (2 Cor. 8:21, ESV). God blesses our ministry through partners like you, and we treasure the trust you place in us. We’ve partnered with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) to provide you with the highest levels of financial accountability and transparency.
