HOW IT ALL STARTED

As a young pastor Dr. Meenan was overwhelmed by the need for tools to help Christians better understand the Bible.  None were adequate to meet the needs of his burgeoning congregation in Richmond, Virginia so Dr. Meenan began teaching a variety of ten week courses. Upon moving to a church in Canoga Park, California Dr. Meenan began producing his own material to better fashion the tools that would facilitate each individual’s study.  He created material and designed courses all with the goal of giving the student a deeper understanding of the source material of the Christian faith.  These ten-week sessions called Discovery were offered and hundreds of people from all over Los Angeles attended.  In Amarillo, Texas the next stage in the process took shape.  Materials were upgraded, courses were revamped and the entire six-year offering of twelve ten-week Bible courses became a reality.  The study was launched as The Word Is Out and in excess of 500 people flooded the downtown sanctuary mid-week to gain more knowledge of the Bible!  With the call to preach in one of America’s premiere pulpits, Hollywood Presbyterian Church, Dr. Meenan thoroughly improved his entire library of materials, plenary presentations, individual workbooks and also constructed presentations in PowerPoint form.  In a church that had never succeeded in attracting great numbers to any mid-week activities, the results were astounding with weekly attendance exceeding 700 people.  The Word Is Out was ready to go global.
