About Read The Bible With Us

The Dream

Since most people think they read the Bible more than they actually do, our dream is to stimulate you to read God’s Word on a regular basis to discover life change.

Most people want to please God and fulfill his wonderful purpose for their lives but they just don’t know where to turn. That is where the Bible comes in. It reveals the Lord in all his glory and what he desires for us.

The Bible’s history, stories and teaching unfold the truth that is necessary to enjoy a walk with God. In fact, the Apostle Paul said that the faith we need for living comes by hearing the Word. Regular input from the Bible is essential to have faith that knows God and enjoys his fullness in the choices of life.

We all need help for the struggles in our lives. Fortunately, the Bible offers either clear teaching or principles which can guide us as we move ahead. The more time we spend learning God’s ways, the greater success we will have in life.

The Bible warns us that knowledge puffs up, but love builds up (I Corinthians 8:1). Therefore, the steps in this website will always guide you toward lovingly applying God’s teaching to your life. As God changes you through his Word, your life will become an example to those you love and know.

As you participate in this adventure, pass on this website to your family and friends. You never know how the Lord will use it to enrich their lives.


The Gannett Leadership Center

Reading the Bible is core to the mission of The Gannett Leadership Center. Our purpose is to equip and mobilize lay people to know God better and to serve him in their spheres of influence.

Ron Gannett founded this ministry to honor the life and work of his father, Alden Gannett, who was a leader in Christian education in Canada and the United States. Both father and son desire to see tools placed in the hands of lay people to help them make a difference in this world.

Our hope is that local churches and clergy will have more trained workers to help them fulfill their mission for the Lord. This objective is carried out by these strategies:

  1. Providing resources and training.
  2. Mentoring through consulting and coaching.
  3. Alerting churches of trends and ministry opportunities.
