The following studies are made available in Rich Text format (RTF) and Portable Document format (PDF).  RTF is intended for word processor use to ease the transition to your own materials.  It will open in your word processor, ready for you to use and edit.  PDF will provide the best format for review and study.  It will open in Adobe Acrobat Reader (avalable at www.adobe.com).  

We only ask that you review the links above if you are new to the site, or, simply want to know where we stand on the Gospel and discipleship.  We consider their review a prerequisite to all studies. 
 
Workman Ministries also feels it is vital that you approach Bible study having first prayerfully confessed any known sin and seeking wisdom and understanding from God.
 
More studies to come as conversions from old formats continue. Feel free to suggest a topic. As always, if you have any comments or questions, please direct them to us via the email link below.
