Bless Every Home

The SBC of Virginia is excited to introduce a brand new initiative that will help churches and plants reach their communities with the Gospel. Through an interactive website, church members will be given an opportunity to be lights in their neighborhood. By utilizing the latest demographic information, the church member will receive promptings on a daily basis to pray for 5 families by name. When reporting the activity on the website, the map will begin to shade the prayer coverage of the area. The strategy does not stop with Prayer however, it will resource members to ably Care for their neighbors, Share the Gospel with them and Disciple them for a life journey of faith.

Take the first step by encouraging and enlisting your church members to be lights in their neighborhoods.

Disciple Resources


The Beginning: First Steps for New Disciples Workbook (5 Sessions)

The Beginning is an intentional Bible study for new disciples of Christ that can be used in one-on-one discipleship or small groups. It introduces the basic practices and elements of the faith, including the centrality of Christ, the crucial practice of prayer and Scripture reading, community, and what it means to be on mission for God. Exercises put weekly topics into practice, and meeting times work as well in one-on-one discipleship relationships as they do with typical small groups.

Communities of Hope (8-12 Weeks)

Communities of Hope is a resource for pastors and churches to empower committed Christians to reach their lost friends and neighbors with the Gospel. This happens through evangelistic small groups outside of the church.


Worship and Witness: Becoming a Great Commission Worshiper, David Wheeler and Vernon Whaley (6 Sessions)

Worship and Witness: Becoming a Great Commission Worshiper is a Bible study for all adults that is based on the B&H academic trade book The Great Commission to Worship: Biblical Principles for Worship-Based Evangelism. This study helps believers to cultivate a discipleship approach that embraces the values of worship and evangelism. The Great Commission to go and make disciples occurs naturally in the life of a believer who follows the Great Commandment to “love God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength” (Mark 12:28-34).
