Our Mission

We bring biblical principles of governance to government leadersand the people who elect them. The world is in crisis. So many human institutions are failing. Everyone knows it.

Most people know that the Bible speaks clearly about: 1) personal matters, (2) family matters, and (3) church life. However, the Bible also speaks equally clearly regarding (4) civil government. God originally established government and establishes nationstoday. He knows best how government is to function. Thus, the Well Versed ministry is committed to bringing biblical principles of governance to governmental leaders.

Human suffering, pain and poverty will only be reduced once nations follow the biblical principles of governance. Only eternal and transcendent truths will produce peace and prosperity in nations. Shipping bags of beans and rice to starving people is important. Very important. What is even better is when the government follows the biblical economic principles so that people can grow their own beans and rice, or have gainful employment which allows them to purchase what they need. Nations need to follow the biblical principles of governance.

How Did This Calling or This Ministry Initially Began? It began when Jim Garlow was nine years of age.

The Methodology

Well Versed teaches biblical principles of governance to governmental leaders through small group Bible studies, or one-on-one meetings with governmental leaders (ambassadors, elected officials, and career bureaucrats).

Are we Republican or Democrat? Right or Left? Neither. We are committed to Right vs. Wrong.

Well Versed Future Conference:

July 20 – 21, 2022 in Arlington VA

Join the Biblical Principles Movement

Here is the challenge:

If two persons get elected to Congress, and one is a follower of God and the other one isn’t, their personal and private lives will likely be different, but quite likely neither know what the Bible teaches about the nature of government!

Why? Because many Bible believers are NOT Well Versed.

They do not know what the Bible says about civil government!

Well Versed Future Conference - July 20 - 22, 2022

You may not want to think about it, but people of Biblical values and people who love freedom are being marginalized and “cancelled.” Trudeau turned Canada into Cuba in a day when he froze bank accounts and then into China when he began arresting pastors. Totalitarian authoritarianism and rampant globalism is on the rise. What steps can you take now to keep that from happening? How do we create an “alternative“ or “parallel universe” in which to survive and even thrive. Here are some serious questions for you to ask:

  • If you don’t have access to your money, what can you do? What can you do now to avoid being in this situation?
  • If you lose the capacity to communicate electronically with each other, what is your backup plan?
  • If you are not allowed to practice your religion openly and freely, do you know how to go “underground?”
  • If you had to flee from your home, where would you go?
  • If the government forces you to have medical treatments you don’t want, what are your options?
  • If your doctor is not allowed to practice medicine because he/she refuses to administer harmful governmentally coerced treatments, how would you get medical care?
  • If your children were being taught politically and sexually offensive material in school, what will you do?
  • If your children are not allowed an education due to their religious and political beliefs, how will you educate them?

We are asking these questions not to create fear, but to create confidence that you are prepared for whatever may come. We sincerely hope you never need to use any of the information you will learn on this day. In the same way that you hope you never have to use your health insurance, car insurance, fire or hail insurance or even your life insurance, having the insurance is still a prudent thing. Wise people know that it is better to have information that you do not need, than to lack information you desperately wish you had.
