Under the direction of Pat Harley, a women’s ministry was formed in Roswell, Georgia to provide excellent Bible teaching and encourage women in their roles as women, wives, and mothers. The teaching team of Pat Harley, Eleanor Lewis, Linda Sweeney, and Margie Reuther taught the Bible in a sequential manner. From that Bible Study model, women gained a better understanding of the purpose of every book in God’s Word and were able to clearly see the incredible story of God’s redemption. Both new believers and seasoned students found this method to be life changing.
From its beginning at a local church, The Amazing Collection developed into a full video curriculum consisting of sixty-six DVDs and eleven workbooks. Today, The Amazing Collection is not only a popular Bible study in America among Women’s Ministries, small groups and individual students but also has been televised on ACCTV in Australia, Miracle Channel in Canada, U-Channel in Indonesia, UCBTV in England, CNLTV (Russian language) in Russia and 115 other countries and in Ukraine (Ukraine language), Kingdom Sat (Arabic language) in the Middle East and North Africa and Shine TV in New Zealand. The Amazing Collection continues to be translated into different languages to spread God’s story around the world and has already reached millions with the “big picture” of the Bible!
Following the foundation of The Amazing Collection, the Big Dream Ministries Board of Directors was directed through prayer to create additional curriculum. The new studies are designed to equip men, women, and children with the power of God’s Word and the tools necessary for lasting life change impacting their family, home, and community. The Amazing Adventure for young children follows the sequential Bible Study method of “The Amazing Collection” and was originally created to be a tool for churches to use alongside The Amazing Collection. However this curriculum was found to work well in Sunday school environments as well as family devotions or home study.
Invincible Love, Invisible War is a six-week study for men and women that shows the spiritual battle revealed from Genesis to Revelation. The teaching team includes Pat Harley, Crawford Loritts, Eleanor Lewis, John Alan Turner, Linda Sweeney, and Tom Jones.
The newest curriculum, Be Amazing, using Titus 2:3-5 as its foundation is designed to teach women practical ways to apply God’s Word. It is a twenty-four week DVD Bible study and practical guide that digs deep into Scripture along with applied exercises to help women be amazing in their character, relationships and home. The teaching team of Pat Harley, Michele Helms, Eleanor Lewis, Traci Martin, Robin Rosebrough, and Linda Sweeney use real-life experiences to express the significance of today’s woman.
Each step Big Dream Ministries has taken has been a journey of faith and we are grateful to the Lord Jesus Christ for His continued guidance and provision.
