Well Versed Ministry: Who we are, What we do and Why
“…For such a time as this.” Esther 4:14
We “bring biblical principles of governance for government leaders.” The world is in crisis. So many human institutions are failing. Everyone knows it.
Most people know that the Bible speaks clearly about: 1) personal matters, (2) family matters, and (3) church life. However, the Bible also speaks equally clearly regarding (4) civil government. God originally established government and establishes nations today. He knows best how government is to function. Thus, Well Versed ministry is committed to bringing biblical principles of governance for governmental leaders.
Human suffering, pain and poverty will only be reduced once nations follow the biblical principles of governance. Only eternal and transcendent truths will produce peace and prosperity in nations. Shipping bags of beans and rice to starving people is important. Very important. What is even better is when the government follows the biblical economic principles so that people can grow their own beans and rice, or have gainful employment that allows them to purchase what they need. Nations need to follow the biblical principle of governance.
Well Versed teaches biblical principles of governance for government leaders through small group Bible studies or one-on-one meetings with governmental leaders (ambassadors, elected officials, career bureaucrats).
