Summary: Over the years we have compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions and provided thoughtful answers here for you.
Why use BNEXT?
BNEXT is a proven system of discipleship and spiritual growth to help your church become grounded in God’s Word and built into maturity in Christ, as described in Ephesians 4:14-16:
“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”
How can BNEXT support the pastor’s sermon?
When used in tandem with BNEXT studies, the pastor’s sermon becomes the focal point for church member’s personal study and reflection, for small group discussion, and potentially for Sunday School instruction. All of this is made possible through the synergistic BNEXT study materials and the guidelines for their use. To learn more, download our Catalog of BNEXT Studies.
What helps do you offer for small group ministry in my church?
We offer a training module for your small group leaders, along with guidelines for establishing a small group ministry. For more information, please see the Resources.
How difficult is it to get started?
It is not difficult to get started with BNEXT. You should read the Getting Started section of this site, and then bring the vision to your church leadership team. It will all unfold from there.
How much does it cost?
We are probably the best priced ministry of this kind anywhere. See our pricing matrix here. Our philosophy is “ministry first, and God will provide the money.” It is our hope that churches that find benefit from BNEXT will consider donating to the ministry through their missions budgets, to enable us to reach out to more churches.
What if our church wants to write its own material?
We encourage churches to write their own materials as well as to draw from our rich database. We provide guidelines for writing study guides, and offer to pay you for the materials you write, if they meet our standards and if they complement our current catalogue. Our vision is to continue expanding the catalogue so that pastors can eventually draw from every book of the Bible and from an expansive array of topics. Read our BNEXT Writer’s Guidelines paper.
