The Bible Engagement Project, A New Research Initiative with Barna Group
Today, you have the opportunity to be a part of a groundbreaking, new study on biblical engagement—The Bible Engagement Project.
This study, which has been commissioned by the General Council of the Assemblies of God, is a comprehensive study of how Christians are engaging (or not engaging) with the Bible. In partnership with Barna Group, research will be conducted among Christians and pastors to better understand the emotional and physical connection people have with the Bible.
How to Participate
We would like to, personally, invite you to participate in our online survey. It should take 18-20 minutes to complete.
Please be assured that your participation and responses will remain completely confidential. This research will help multiple groups evaluate the level of Biblical literacy in American churches.

The last day to participate will be Sunday, April 21st

Bible Reading Plan
This two year Bible reading plan is designed to start on the first day of any month of the year. In 24 months, you can read the entire Bible. You and also read Psalms 4 times and Proverbs twice.
The goal is to read shorter portions and spend more time thinking about what you read. Each month’s reading is designed for 28 days. This gives you “catch up days” at the end of the month to help you keep pace. Even if you fall behind a few weeks, pick back up the next month.
Start your Bible reading plan today. Click here to download the plan.
