Christians follow Jesus’ pattern of life when they serve confidently and lead humbly, because their identity is in Christ—not what they do.
Christians boldly and humbly pursue God’s glory and people’s good, because Jesus is with us always (Matthew 28:18–20). He is not dead, but alive, and His life brings light to darkness, peace to chaos, justice to injustice.
Christians point people toward Jesus, because He is Savior and King. Jesus brings the dead to life. His kingdom is without end and without comparison to anything found in this world.
Our REAP journals guide you in a method for studying the Bible that begins with close reading and concludes with prayer. Other resources include prayer and liturgy books for winter and spring, and workbooks that address Christian doctrines, foundations of the Christian faith, and marriage.
Lecture videos come from The Austin Stone Development Program, an eight-month program dedicated to Christian doctrines and spiritual disciplines. The lectures can be complemented with the Doctrines & Disciplines workbook.
More to It, ASI’s podcast, provides in-depth explorations of various topics. The first season finished in September 2022, and concerned reframing emotions from a biblical perspective and through healthy habits. More to It: Reframing Emotions was created in partnership with The Austin Stone Counseling Center.
We invite professors, theologians, authors, and other speakers to lecture on topics ranging from ethics and parenthood to apologetics and reading. Check out past seminars with the recordings.
These are short events, usually held in the evenings on weekdays or Saturday mornings. Seminars are affordable and feature biblical teaching and skills-based application from a variety of speakers, such as counselors, pastors, and professors.
The Austin Stone Development Program is an eight-month program dedicated to Christian doctrines and spiritual disciplines. It employs cohort-based learning, along with homework and regular assessments. By learning and practicing to share what has been taught, participants graduate from ASDP with the confidence and humility necessary to have conversations and lead lives that honor God and bless other people.
Everyone has a story to tell—what’s yours? The Writer Development Program (WriterDev) is an eight-month program that helps you tell stories clearly, compellingly, and beautifully. In the program, you will attend weekly lectures from experienced writers and other professionals, practice different kinds of writing, hone your craft alongside a dedicated cohort, and learn to give and receive feedback. As you go through the program, you will be nurtured in your faith, challenged to develop your skills, and encouraged to try new ways of telling your story.
The Teacher Development Program is a ten-week class that prepares people to teach the Bible with confidence, humility, and excellence. The program includes lectures, but is primarily focused on practice. Participants teach several times throughout the class period , and receive feedback from a dedicated coach. Upon completing the class, participants can move into apprenticeships and other appropriate roles to continue developing the skills they have gained.
