August Renovation:
We are thankful for new carpeting and fresh paint on the walls of our workspace. We are now beginning to move things back in: furniture, files, books, equipment, and cables. When our office space and computer system are reconfigured we will be able to more efficiently carry out our ministry of bringing God’s Word to God’s World. We appreciate your prayers as we re-organize, and plan for our Fall season.

Recently published poem, “Seeing It Done

1 Thessalonians 1:6-8, “And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere, so that we need not say anything.” (1 Corinthians 11:1, Philippians 3:17)

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies

In the mid 1500’s Geneva became a gathering place for those who wanted to return Christianity to its biblical foundations. Under the leadership of John Calvin scholars, ministers, and concerned students gathered to compare all they believed and practiced with God’s word as preserved in Scripture.

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies was founded to continue that practice in our own period of history. Our desire is to apply God’s word to our own lives and to the world around us. Our goal is to reform (reshape) our lives to fit the mold that our Creator has given us in his written word. Read our 2016 Annual Report.
