Ligonier has been so good to my family for over 25 years. I started listening to Renewing your Mind on the radio and through tapes in the 1990s when I was a teenager. I was looking for a knowledge of who God is and found it with Ligonier Ministries. I have read RC's "The Holiness of God" and many other of his books in the last 25 years that have helped in my search. Since then, I have gone to several conferences in Orlando/Pennsylvania that have been absolutely wonderful for my soul. It is very much like going to a family reunion where you meet great people and teachers each time. I also love how Ligonier is on the cutting edge of technology, and I can use that technology to listen to Bilblical teaching wherever I go. (REFNET, Ligonier APP, Tabletalk magazine or online, podcasts, and many more opportunities.) I could keep going on about how Ligonier has touched our lives but will say that I whole heartedly recommended Ligonier Ministries.

There are few organizations more dedicated to proclaiming the holiness and sovereignty of God and the central place of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ to a world in profound need of the truth of the gospel than Ligonier Ministries. It has been our great honor to come alongside this ministry in its ongoing work of equipping the saints and expanding the witness of Scripture to as much of the world as possible, fulfilling the Great Commission. The priceless legacy of the late Dr. R. C. Sproul not only lives but thrives. We can't wait to see what God has in store for this ministry in the next fifty years.

My husband first started listening to the teaching of Dr. Sproul back in the early 1990’s. He shared these resources with me, which were instrumental in my spiritual growth. I found the resources to be especially helpful by providing a greater understanding of God’s attributes, specifically His holiness and sovereignty. This led to a clarification of the Gospel that moved me from a man-centered to God-centered soteriology. A right understanding of God’s Word and the implications of the Gospel has deepened my love for God and others. The clarity and understanding provided, not only by Dr. Sproul, but also by the other teaching fellows, has been a consistent source of reliable teaching that has impacted me in every area of my life. Over the years, my husband and I have continued to benefit from the teaching, resources, and teaching tours offered by Ligonier. We have shared the resources with others and often hear responses like, “After years of confusion, the Bible finally makes sense”. I am grateful to God for Ligonier’s continued commitment to proclaiming the truth of God’s word. I cannot think of a ministry that has been more beneficial to me as a woman, wife, mother, daughter, friend, and counselor, than Ligonier.

Ligonier Ministries, Inc. has strengthened and expanded my personal relationship with God by enlightening me to the Reformed theology.  Isn't that what a ministry is supposed to do--inform and grow a relationship with God?  The dedication to learn Hebrew/Latin/Philosophy to fully understand the Word of God, the commitment to understand how the Reformed movement has evolved from the Word, and the passion to share the Word demonstrated by R.C. Sproul and Stephen Nichols, as well as all the other Ligonier "disciples" whom I've met over the years, are the principal reasons why I vehemently support Ligonier Ministries, Inc.

Ligonier Ministries brings the whole truth of God's Word to hungry ears, hearts, and souls. I grew up in the church but wasn't exposed to Reformed theology until I began listening to "Renewing Your Mind" on the radio in the 1990s. After hearing R.C. Sproul winsomely expound the Scriptures, with a focus on God's holiness and sovereignty, I became convinced that this was true, biblical teaching in all its fullness. It's my joy to encourage other truth-seekers to become familiar with Ligonier's many resources. You will blossom and grow, and you'll become a more effective tool in the service of Christ!

We use Ligonier materials almost every day. Tabletalk and the Ligonier Commect courses are the daily resources.

We attended seminary for several years and find that the Ligonier teaching is actually more helpful than those seminary courses for our growth.

The teaching is deep and Biblically sound, but also very pastoral. Highly recomended for all who are in Christ.

Over the past 22 years we have blessed immensely by this ministry. All of my children were raised listening to R.C. Sproul. In fact we used the video lectures to train our kids to set still through a church service. I have attended several National and Regional Conferences and have found all of the speakers outstanding and their messages challenging and solidly biblical. The last thing I hear every night is a message from R.C. on my Ligonier App. I can not think of a better way to end my day.

I became a Christian through reading the bible. Soon after, I began to have a lot of questions about doctrine and the meaning of various passages of scripture. I watched and listened to a lot of different teachers on the Christian stations. Many, of the programs that I watched seemed to be better suited to a self-help/feel good station(s) rather than something to be aired on a Christian station.
The Renewing Your Mind Broadcast, however; stood out as being different. I remember waking up before 5:00 just to watch this program and to visit the Ligonier website (which I still do). Sometimes the broadcast was difficult to watch i.e. it was not what I wanted to hear. However, when I would compare the message against what is written in the Bible, I would come to the conclusion that what I was listening to was a clear exposition of the word of God.
This ministry provides an abundant variety of resources to edify the Christian and I would very highly recommend it to any Christian who wants to grow in understanding the scripture. Also, the people that I have had contact with in this organization have been outstanding. I have become a supporting member of this ministry and will continue to do so.

Oh, what a beautiful day to praise the Lord for the majesty of the world! And I thank Ligonier Ministries for nurturing my growth by bringing into focus the wonders of the scriptures. My life has been profoundly impacted by the opportunities to engage in personal and corporate Bible studies using the incredible Ligonier resources. Tabletalk and Renewing Your Mind messages guide my thoughts, prayers, and actions each day. I am very thankful to the wise and strong Ligonier leadership who share the fullness of God's love and who bring their programs to the world. God's love is shining through all the Ligonier teachings...how blessed we are!!

Next to my home church, where Corporate Worship and Life-on-Life Discipleship are my highest priority, Ligonier Ministries tops the list!! We have been to nine conferences in the past eight years. The Reformation Study Bible anchors my reading. I use Ligonier's website (Ligonier.org) almost daily. Tabletalk Magazine along with countless books are all incredibly valuable and trustworthy resources. Ligonier truly does "bridge the gap between Sunday School and seminary!" Finally, the better I've gotten to know countless speakers and staff members. the more I appreciate their love for the Lord and desire to serve Him faithfully!

Words cannot express the gratitude I have toward Ligonier Ministries. God brought Ligonier Ministries, specifically Renewing Your Mind into my life over 20 years ago. The kindness and the charity of this ministry does not diminish its unwavering commitment to Reformed Theology and that all things be done to the glory of God. I have found their resources trustworthy and excellent. They truly do help to "bridge the gap between Sunday School and Seminary", the exact place where I find myself.

Marjy and I have followed Ligonier Ministries for thirty-five years. Tabletalk
magazine has supplied us with a consistent stream of gospel centered, sound Biblical teaching that has strengthened our devotional lives for these many years. In addition, we’ve attended multiple National Conferences in Orlando and Seattle and have always been impressed with the stellar lineup of speakers addressing interesting and timely topics. We’ve made many new friends and acquaintances at these venues. More recently, we’ve been very pleased with the growth and development of Reformation Bible College, since we seek to invest in the education of future generations of Christian leaders. We’ve also had the opportunity to travel with Ligonier to very exciting places and learn much about the history of the church and its prominent leaders, all the while having a lot of laughter and fun with our traveling companions. We could go on, but suffice it to say that these highlights underscore our hearty and enthusiastic recommendation of Ligonier ministries.

It was in the late nineties that I first heard R.C. Sproul in Philadelphia. I sat in my pew for a few minutes after the sermon scratching my head and wondering if he was right. He sure was! He preached in a way as to make me want to open the Bible and find out for myself what it said. I thought I had everything to do with my salvation, but this ‘new idea’, (which was always in the Word of God), about God Himself (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), making a way and having a plan from before creation, carrying it out so His people would be brought to Him, awakened and made alive to the ways of God, and saved from their evil God-denying ways. It’s not about God being something I chose or not, but about God knowing me intimately and walking ahead of me all the way to Eternity.
Thanks Ligonier for teaching so many the ‘why’ of one’s faith, and the hugeness of God Almighty! He is a big God, full of love and grace and mercy!

I tried to write an accurate portrayal of this ministry, each time I was kicked out before finishing. Check our who their top employees are (nepotism) with very high salaries, the lawsuit they filed in the past and their financial situation as submitted by www.minisrywatch.com.

I find R. C. Sproul Sr. teachings very biblically related, his messages are enlightening and I have listened to him for some years. However, I have to question the above. Do the research for yourself, should any ministry file a lawsuit against a blogger, hire basically his son-in-law to run the ministry without the proper experience?

We have been blessed by Ligonier Ministries, Inc. for nearly twenty five years. We were drawn to the ministry when we read their charge: "teaching Christians why the believe what they believe."

It was from this beginning that we were drawn to Dr. R.C. Sproul's book The Holiness of God and then numerous other books written by Dr. Sproul covering Scripture that drew us closer to our Lord.

Over the years we have had the privilege of attending Conferences, which are a blessing in themselves, having the opportunity to hear and meet other great Reformed Theology ministers/educator/teachers.

The ministry's monthly publication, Tabletalk, is the most Bible
based devotional (and more!) we have ever encountered.

I have been receiving "Tabletalk" and Dr. Sproul's cd's for several years now. I have an extensive collection of his teaching materials which has been extremely helpful in my roles as a bible study leader and Sunday School teacher. In the current atmosphere of "whatever works" evangelicalism, Ligonier has been my go-to ministry for sound, responsible theology and doctrine.

I first heard a broadcast of Renewing Your Mind with Dr. sproul on the radio about ten years ago and I can still remember how the words were like a tuning fork to my ear. Since then I have listened to and read countless messages from Dr. Sproul and his associates utilizing the vast array of resources: books, tapes, DVDs, Tabletalk magazine, online materials, and conferences, all of which has served to tremendously increase my understanding of scripture, theology, and Christian living. I highly recommend Ligonier Ministries' extensive resources to anyone who desires to follow the apostle Paul's exhortation to renew your mind!

My wife & I first experienced Ligonier Ministries by serving as volunteer workers at the 2000 National Conference. We have been blessed, since that initial conference with volunteer duties ranging from stuffing envelopes to coordinating volunteers for the past 10+ years for the ministry. We have thoroughly enjoyed staff interactions through the years, which includes major conferences 3 and 4 times per year utilizing 50 to 150 volunteer workers per each 3 day event. It is a delight to work with an organization that prays for our Lord to guide the ministry and provides biblical devotions each Friday for personnel who love the Lord. We pray God will continue to bless this ministry until He comes again.
