"Fulfilling the Mission of the Church"


The Great Commission is a call to discipleship. Let's consider how best to answer that call.


Join us at the 2015 Verse By Verse Ministry International Bible Conference to learn the Bible's perspective on the demands, practices and rewards of discipleship. Why are we called to disciple? How do we answer that calling? What does a true disciple look like?


This year's Bible Conference will be held on October 8-10 at Village Parkway Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas and features a robust agenda with four dynamic Bible teachers.


Distinguished Speakers


Our keynote speaker is Phil Johnson, Executive Director of Grace to You, the teaching ministry of Pastor John MacArthur. Phil has been closely associated with John MacArthur since 1981, including editing most of John's major books. Phil is an accomplished Bible teacher and speaker in his own right with decades of experience teaching Bible study groups, from the pulpit, and at conferences worldwide. Phil is also known for maintaining several popular websites, including The Spugeon Archives and The Hall of Church History.


Joining our keynote speaker in 2015 will be Pastor Brian Michaels, Teaching Pastor of Springs Lighthouse Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado; Bruce Proctor, Associate Pastor of Christian Education at True Vine Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas; and Stephen Armstrong, founder of Verse By Verse Ministry International. Each speaker delivers the word of God in a unique style but with a common commitment to the authority of scripture.

A Conference Focused on Scripture


Topics for this year's conference cover a wide variety of biblically-centered issues, including the advantages and pitfalls of multi-campus and small-group discipleship; "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations..."
Matthew 28:19
the eternal importance of pursuing obedience; advice on discipling unique personalities in the church; the challenges of reaching Christian youth in an age of entertainment;

and the importance of maintaining a biblical focus in discipling believers.




We want to equip both leaders and nonleaders to successfully fulfill the Church's mission to disciple and be discipled. As always, our conference features a mix of stirring exhortation from the pulpit with more intimate breakout sessions, where speakers can explore subject matter in-depth while taking questions from the audience.

    About Grace to You As believers committed to God and walking in obedience to Him, we affirm the purpose of Grace to You, which is to teach biblical truth with clarity, taking advantage of various means of mass communications to expand the sphere of John MacArthur’s teaching ministry.

    We use mass communications media to expose John’s teaching to as wide an audience as possible “for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12-13).

    About Springs Lighthouse Spring Lighthouse is a Bible-teaching church based out of Colorado Springs, Colorado. We believe there is one living and true GOD, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all.


    We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired, without error in the original manuscripts, and the infallible rule of faith and practice. As such, we teach verse-by-verse through Scripture, staying true to its original context.

    About Verse By Verse Ministry Verse by Verse Ministry International is a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian ministry dedicated to promoting the preaching and teaching of God's word clearly and boldly, in its proper historical and theological context, and for the purposes God has ordained: to persuade the unbeliever of the truth of the Gospel and to equip the saints for the work of ministry.


    This ministry was founded in 2003 on a commitment to provide compelling, verse-by-verse teaching of God's word at no charge (2Cor 2:17), thus ensuring the whole counsel of God is proclaimed (Acts 20:27).

    We believe every Christian is commanded by New Testament scripture to become a life-long student of God's word, and this ministry is working to support that goal in our students' lives. While many online teaching ministries exist today, we believe our ministry is unique in what we teach and in how we teach. Verse By Verse Ministry teaches entire books of the Bible, and our studies explain carefully and clearly the text of scripture without being distracted by discussions of popular culture, politics, or denominational disputes.
