Our History: Unlocking the Bible challenges listeners to believe that their lives can be transformed by “The Power of the Open Book” through consistent study of the Bible and a deepening faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The ministry grew from Pastor Colin’s two-year journey of preaching and reading through the Bible, shared by the congregation of The Orchard Evangelical Free Church in 2000 and 2001.
The journey led to the publication of a four-volume book series entitled The Unlocking the Bible Story, followed by several other books: Ten Keys for Unlocking the Bible, Unlock the Bible in 30 Days, Ten Keys to Unlock the Christian Life, and The 10 Greatest Struggles of Your Life.
Currently the daily program reaches an estimated 250,000 all over the world. In addition, through the use of podcasts, mobile apps, articles, and social media, the ministry reaches millions of people around the globe with its gospel-centered content.
Our Mission: To put the gospel within people’s grasp by delivering impactful Bible teaching through a broad array of modern media.
