What is the Romans Project?
Our mission is to equip pastors to abide in and feed their congregations from God's word.
Much of the world's evangelical church leaders have little access to solid theological resources. Quality seminaries are hundreds of miles away, travel is expensive and sometimes dangerous. Computers and internet access—even electricity—are luxuries many cannot afford.
With new congregations forming daily, the global church is growing fast. Traditional methods for equipping church leaders are not able to keep up with this growth rate. There is a real hunger for good, solid Bible teaching. Unfortunately, a staggering number—18.7 million evangelical churches in the world today—are being led by men and women with no theological training.
How can these church leaders get the solid Biblical training they need to teach their congregations about the life-transforming, foundational truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ? Romans is a great place to start!
We challenge pastors to immerse themselves in God's word by committing to read the book of Romans twenty times. Pastors are then challenged write out their own copy of the book of Romans.
When a pastor completes the challenge, they are given a pocket-sized mp3 player (including earbuds) that contains Pastor Scott Gilchrist's complete exposition of Romans--over one hundred messages! We encourage each pastor to continue using this method--reading, writing and listening though other books of the Bible as well. Those small mp3 players actually contain over 800 messages from the following additional books: John, 1 & 2 Timothy, Genesis, Exodus, Proverbs, Luke, Acts, Ephesians, Hebrews, 1 & 2 Peter, Revelation and messages on God's attributes and the Holy Spirit.
Think of the exponential impact on thousands of congregations whose leaders have immersed themselves so deeply into God's Word!
