The Wonder of the Mundane 

It’s Christmastime, a season mixed with equal parts mundane and wonder. There’s the list making, the shopping, the lines, the wrapping. And then there’s the shepherds, the angels, the good news, and the baby. This baby, who was the fulfillment of a promise made at the dawn of time, came for you. For just a moment now, take a break from the mundane and know again the wonder of his birth.

The Verity Fellowship as a Conduit

The Verity Fellowship exists to encourage and equip women to use the Scriptures well.  We believe that women have much to offer the Kingdom of God in both formal and informal roles of ministry.  We are excited to announce a new way we can serve to encourage you as you fulfill these roles. Read more about a new addition to our website.

The Woman Who Wandered

We live in a world full of temptations. We wander. We sin. We fall. The amazing part of our story is that God rescues us...every day. When we wander (and we will in one way or another), he will call us back to him. Let me share a story with you about a woman who wandered from God.

Verity Training's Big Picture

Verity Training is a two-day event that will help you teach the Bible well. But before you get wrapped up in the fun details, pause a moment to take in the grandeur of the all-powerful speech of God that has the ability to raise the dead. And let yourself stand in awe of the fact that he uses weak people like you and me to accomplish his work.

The Nearly Forgotten Holiday 

Thanksgiving. It’s all about the food, right? Or maybe about the shopping? Every year it seems to come and go with less fanfare than the year before. But what if we choose to embrace it as the perfect way to kick off the advent season? How can we make Thanksgiving all about what God has done? 

What Makes Verity, Verity? 

How do we explain what Verity does? We have events, a blog, a training to teach, and ministry mentoring.  That seems simple enough, right? But it goes much deeper - read on the learn more.  

A Lavish Verity Forum Feast, 2018 

It’s November, friends. And that means it’s only three months until Verity Forum! We want to whet your appetite for the lavish feast of workshops in store for you. Plus, you know it’s going to take at least three months to pick your favorite options. Here’s a taste of what’s to come. 

Ministry Fraud 

Do you ever feel totally unqualified or ill-equipped for the ministry God has entrusted to you? Do you ever wonder if others feel the same way? Take heart, you are not alone. And maybe being unqualified isn’t as bad as you think…

Needy for Your Prayers

Our third Verity Conference is happening this weekend and we can’t do it without God’s help. Would you please join us in praying for his fruitful work to be accomplished this week? Here’s how you can pray. 

Not All Pain is Gain

Conviction and condemnation. Do you find it easy to confuse the two? Both feel terrible, but they’re very different. Understanding what Scripture says about them equips us to follow Jesus with perseverance and joy.

I've Told My Child the Gospel, Now What?

Should we think about sharing the gospel with someone we meet on a plane and our children in the same way? Usually not. We have an ongoing relationship with the children in our lives and they are maturing over time. It's helpful to keep a few principles in mind when speaking the good news to children. 

Faith in the Face of Injustice

When I look around at the injustice committed against people around me, my heart breaks, and I want to yell. Sometimes as I pray, it seems that the work to bring full justice isn't coming quickly. Maybe you can relate. We're not alone. There is an example for us in the Scriptures, and the message of God to him is for us today.

How to Pick a Workshop

You have a choice coming up- what workshop to attend at the Verity Fall Conference. We're telling you now that it may be a hard choice, so we wanted to help prepare you with a few things to consider as you look ahead.

What to Expect from Fall Conference

You probably know that Susan Jahns in our plenary speaker for our coming conference. What you may not know is her love for Jesus, her passion for understanding how the Bible points to him, or the heartfelt prayers she is praying for you. When we asked Susan if she’d like to write a letter welcoming you to register for conference, she jumped at the chance. As you’ll see, the reasons we chose her are obvious.

Proverbs in the Right Place

Have you ever read Proverbs and thought, “I must be doing something wrong because things in my life aren’t working out the way the Bible promises they will?” If so, you’re not alone. The problem is, we have to read individual parts of the Bible in the light of the whole story – the story that points to Jesus. At our fall conference, Katie will teach a workshop on the one story of the Bible and how the individual parts fit into the bigger picture.

Church is Worth the Effort?

Why do we go to church? Sometimes it’s out of a sense of obligation. Sometimes it’s to find community. Or maybe it makes us feel better about ourselves. Do we need to go to church? Aren’t there many other ways to meet with God? Hebrews 10 teaches us about God’s design for the church, and gives us compelling reasons for not missing out.

Stuck in the Middle of Unresolved Suffering, Part 2

When there's no end in sight to our suffering, how do we walk faithfully with Jesus? Picking up where Part 1 left off (our position of trust in the God we've come to know), in Part 2 we’ll examine what we do with our grief, holding our faith in tandem with a recognition of our sorrow and a petition for God's help, all while knowing (spoiler alert) our rescue is certain.
