HOW IT ALL STARTED. OUR STORY.
WRITING AND SPEAKING ABOUT THE BIBLE WAS NEVER SOMETHING ROSS PLANNED ON DOING. HIS PLAN WAS TO PLAY HOCKEY (SEE SLIDE #3 IN THE "WHO" SECTION ABOVE".
Q830 MEDIA GREW (UNEXPECTEDLY) OUT OF E-MAILS. WHILE ROSS WAS IN COLLEGE HE HAD A FRIEND TRYING TO READ THE BIBLE. ROSS BEGAN SENDING DAILY E-MAILS, DESIGNED TO HELP HIS FRIEND READ THE BIBLE. AS HE WROTE, HE FOCUSED ON TRYING TO DRAW THEM INTO THE STORIES, SO THEY COULD START TO FEEL THE DRAMA AND PASSION IN EACH MOMENT. HIS FOCUS WAS ON HELPING THEM GO DEEPER INTO THE NARRATIVE SO THEY COULD FEEL THE EXCITEMENT & EMOTION OF THE NARRATIVE. THE RESPONSE HE RECEIVED FROM HIS FRIEND SHOCKED HIM.--THE BIBLE WAS, "COMING TO LIFE".
ROSS' FAMILY SOON ENCOURAGED HIM TO KEEP WRITING, AS HE DID, A PASSION DEVELOPED, AS HE SAW A NEED FOR PEOPLE TO EXPERIENCE THE BIBLE IN A FRESH WAY. HE WANTED EVERYONE IN THE WORLD TO DISCOVER THAT THE BIBLE (AN OFTEN NEGLECTED BOOK) CONTAINS THE MOST PIERCING STORY YOU COULD EVER READ! EVENTUALLY, E-MAILS TURNED IN TO Q830:GENESIS AND Q830 MEDIA WAS BORN.
SINCE THEN, ROSS' PASSION HAS ONLY CONTINUED TO GROW. HE LONGS TO SEE PEOPLE PICK UP THEIR DUST COLLECTING BIBLES AND FALL IN LOVE WITH THE STORY INSIDE.
PEOPLE HAVE STRUGGLED TO READ THE BIBLE FOR A LONG TIME. IN FACT, THERE'S A STORY IN THE BIBLE ABOUT IT. IN THE STORY A MAN NAMED PHILIP ASKS SOMEONE READING THE BIBLE, "DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE READING?" AND THE MAN READING SAYS, "HOW CAN I UNLESS SOMEONE GUIDES ME THROUGH IT?"
WE APPRECIATE THIS STORY BECAUSE WE KNOW THERE ARE COUNTLESS PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WHO WOULD STILL RESPOND TO PHILIPS QUESTION THE SAME WAY. MANY PEOPLE WANT TO READ THE BIBLE BUT THEY STRUGGLE--THEY NEED A LITTLE DIRECTION--AND WE WANT TO BE THEIR GUIDE!
ALL OF THIS BECAUSE OF ONE SIMPLE QUESTION ASKED IN ACTS CHAPTER 8, VERSE 30.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE READING?
WHY IS IT CALLED "Q-8-30"?
