During the 2015-2016 academic year, we will be preaching through the book of 1 Corinthians. We will be exploring Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church and his focus on their need for unity in Christ, centered around a “foolish” gospel of Christ crucified and risen. Along the way, Paul deals with difficult issues of sin, relationships, church life, and more.

We believe that God’s Word is formative for our lives as it transforms our minds and our hearts to Jesus Christ. Thus, each week we preach expository sermons as we work through books of the Bible. Each week we record the audio of the sermon and post it here so that anyone can access the teaching for personal enrichment or group discussion. Please let us know what other resources we can provide to help you grow in Christ. But don’t just listen online–come join us! BSU Gather meets on Mondays at 9pm at the BSU House on the south end of the College of the Ozarks campus.
