KC Bible Impact

The KC Bible Impact ministry encompasses various causes and initiatives related to advancement of God’s Word in the KC metro area. Here are some important elements of the KC Bible Impact Ministry

Building Citywide Unity Around the Bible Cause

In the spirit of unity and humility that the Lord has established here in Kansas City, there is no headlining organization. It is upon the foundation of our Christian community that this initiative might fulfill its greatest potential, fostering zealous love for Jesus and leading to disciple-making disciples, missional calling and collaboration.

The focus of developing this citywide unity includes emphasis on discovering God’s Word, engaging with Scripture and connecting around Bible ministry.

Bible Outreach

In collaboration with churches and other ministries, we want to make the Bible available to every person in Kansas City in a language and format each can understand and afford, so everyone may experience its life-changing message.

This includes Evangelism Partnerships with Outreach Format New Testaments. We have a variety of Bible engagement tools available in connection with the American Bible Society, and an innovative Bible design from Biblica called The Books of the Bible along with its 8-week reading/listening plan called the Community Bible Experience.

Bible Engagement Initiatives

Imagine the transformational impact of 1,000,000 people in the KC area engaging with God’s Word. This is the dream we are pursuing through this movement called the KC Bible Experience.

The KC Bible Experience is a multi-year, Kansas City Metro Area Scripture engagement initiative offering structure and facilitation for congregations, other groups, and individuals to experience the life-changing message of God's Word. Participating churches read the whole New Testament in eight weeks. Readers meet in book club-style discussion groups to reflect on Scripture together. It's that simple.

Bible-based Trauma Healing

What is Bible-based Trauma Healing? Trauma knows no boundaries of nationality, gender, age, social class or race. We all live in a fallen world and groan inwardly from the painful consequences of the Fall. The church is uniquely called to this mission field - it provides a theology for suffering, a community bound together in love, access to a God who is willing to hear our honest laments, and a Savior who knows what unjust suffering feels like and whose death on the cross heals the broken-hearted and forgives their sins.

The Trauma Healing Institute at American Bible Society equips and supports a global community of workers in trauma care, helping local churches, national Bible Societies and other NGOs bring Bible-based trauma healing to the world’s hurting people.
