Divorce, drugs, disasters, disease, and death surround us. Deep depression is rampant among so many. Have you ever wondered how you can make a difference among the needs of so many hurting people? There’s an answer to the pain and suffering that many are experiencing.

Jesus says, The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly (John 10:10).

How does this abundant life happen? By walking according to God’s Word, and fully following Jesus Christ. You may be a Christ Follower and yet wonder how you can let others know about the Gospel and His Word.

You can make a difference in your community and city!

Joy Gilmore is impacting her city by being a Precept Area Team Leader. Lives are being changed, families are being restored, and Joy is helping to encourage and equip people in God’s Word.

“Time is short! Who knows how long we will have the freedom to openly meet together and study God’s Word. This is something we take for granted. We have got to be intentional about sharing the Gospel and helping people grow in the knowledge of God’s Word. It’s my desire to make a difference!” –Joy Gilmore, Milledgeville, GA


Joy’s Testimony

One of my greatest desires is to be used effectively for the Kingdom. I can’t think of a better thing to do with my life than helping equip people in Bible Study. Precept Ministries International is by far one of the greatest ministries I know of to help anyone to learn to study God’s Word!

For many years I knew in my heart that I wanted to volunteer for Precept. In 2010 when the Training for the Network became available, I prayed and decided to get trained. Now that I’m trained, I love serving our Precept Bible Study Leaders in my region. I so enjoy encouraging and helping equip them with whatever they need. Plus, it’s exciting to help others start classes.

John, my dear husband, also felt called to be a part of the Precept Network. He is serving as the Events Coordinator for our area. I’m so excited to see what God is doing. What a joy to be serving together in this capacity.

We currently have 144 Bible Study Leaders. Plus, we just hosted a Training Workshop with 43 people in attendance. We’re thrilled to now have 5 Area Coordinators. God is moving and it’s truly exciting.

Together we all sense God doing something truly amazing! We’re a team dedicated in helping make a difference in our community. We’re focused and we know what God has called us to do.

“It’s my passion to help equip people in God’s Word!”

I can’t think of anything greater to do with my life than to do whatever it takes to help establish people in God’s Word. John and I are blessed to serve as part of the team of Precept Ministries International. We have taken Precept Bible Studies to other parts of the world and now we’re privileged to serve in the small town of Milledgeville, Georgia.

No matter where you live there are people eager and hungry to know more about God. They can only know Him by knowing His Word.

My first introduction to a Precept class was in the New Orleans area in a home Bible study. How perfect it was to begin with A Faith That’s Real, a study in the book of James.

When I started doing my homework, and when I first heard Kay Arthur teach on video, I was hooked! This was exactly what I had been looking for.

It was awesome as I began learning the Precept Inductive Study Method. I was thrilled as I started my new journey of studying the Bible for myself. The more I learned, the more I wanted to know. I was delighted about this new way of studying the Bible. I soon wanted to know more. I came to the Precept Ministries’ headquarters and took several Training Workshops. I felt such an urgency to take Precept wherever I went.

During the Training Workshops, God continued to stir in my heart about leading. I was already a trained public school teacher, but the Precept Training helped me get the tools I needed to be fully equipped to lead and teach others. Plus, I wanted to know all I could about studying the Bible in a much deeper level. Teaching is a passion of mine, and I love learning all that I can.

Now many years later, I continue doing Precept studies. Plus, I haven’t stopped being passionate about leading classes. I could tell you story after story of changed lives. This is one of the many reasons John and I are giving our time and our gifts to Precept.

We’re forever grateful to have the opportunity to help impact the lives of people by helping to equip them in inductive Bible study. There’s nothing better!” –Joy Gilmore, Milledgeville, Georgia

People today are desperately looking for answers. They’re looking for hope, for help, for healing to their pain. God’s Word says, His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence (2 Peter 1:3).

Precept is grateful to the Gilmores and the many Bible Study Leaders around the world who are helping others discover truth for themselves!

I am so thankful to have Joy as my Area Team Leader! I have seen first-hand what a passion she has to help others learn how to study God's Word. Precept Bible Studies are truly the best way that I have ever seen to establish people in God's Word. I know that when I took the first one, that was it! I couldn't get enough! It was like God's Word had been opened up in a way that I had never seen before! I thank my God for Joy and John Gilmore for all that they do and have done to lead me in these studies.
