Welcome to Drawing Near to God Online Education!

With over 20 Bible study courses written by Joanne Ellison, Drawing Near to God has a deep vault of content for women across the nation to study God’s word through individual study, Biblical teaching and small group discussion.

Currently, this program is offered via an in-person experience on Thursday mornings at St. Andrew’s Church in Mt. Pleasant, SC and also via live streaming of worship and teaching.

Our new Drawing Near to God Online Education program seeks to give women everywhere the same encounter with Jesus that women in Mt. Pleasant experience in person on Thursday mornings by providing guidance in their study of the Word as well as community through online small group discussion.

 A Note from Joanne

As we grow in our journey with Christ, we begin to recognize the value of hitting the pause button to remember that God is near. I call it my daily coffee break with God where I stop and have coffee for a few minutes in the afternoon.

I would love it if you would join me (each day, if you like) by participating in our online education program. Take a break in your day – a coffee break, lunch break, first thing in the morning, or even bath time – to study God’s word, reflect and make space for Him. You can follow a daily schedule or set your own pace, even.

We will have online forums where you can pose questions, engage with other participants and share your own thoughts.

Each week, I’ll also share a message that pertains to the week’s lesson that is close to my heart.

Introduction

Current Study - Nehemiah: Rebuilding Walls

The study of Nehemiah will transform your life! Nehemiah, a Jew, was given permission to help rebuild the broken down walls of Jerusalem. The Jews, in captivity for 70 years were beginning to emerge again, building back the walls and temple of their beloved city, Jerusalem. As you walk through the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem, you will walk through the rebuilding of your own broken-down spiritual walls. This is a powerful study designed to bring you healing and wholeness.

Hear what Joanne has to say about this course:

This is a pre-recorded 13-week course that can be started at any time!
