One Accord in Palmyra


On Monday, March 4, Central Baptist Church in Palmyra hosted an Accordance Training seminar.  Accordance is widely regarded to be the most powerful Bible software package on the Mac platform, and will be making it's first foray on to Windows computers in 2013.  The training seminar was geared mostly for current Accordance users, but it was useful for anyone who is interested in seeing how powerful studying the Bible on the computer can be.  Relationships between books, even comparing the language of one book to another, can be done quickly and elegantly with the software tools currently on the market.  In this way research, which can take hours using printed materials, can be reduced to moments.  This frees up time for more reflection when preparing for a sermon, Sunday school lesson, or Bible study . In the future, Accordance will become as powerful on mobile devices, such as the iPad, as it is on "traditional computers." The tools currently restricted to desktops and laptops may soon be available everywhere.

Accordance training for ABCNJ credit


Accordance bible software has, for years, been the premier bible software suite for the Macintosh platform.  Since the arrival of the iPhone and iPad, a version of Accordance has been available mobile devices.  In 2013 they will, for the first time, release a native version for Windows (it will currently run on Windows by use of an emulator). On March 4 they will be coming to Central Baptist Church in Palmyra, New Jersey for a free 1 day training seminar.  The arc of the training will take participants through learning the interface, to setting up personal tools and notes, to doing complex searches on the Biblical text.

ABCNJ is happy to offer academy credit for all pastors who attend this seminar.  Even if you are not currently a user of Accordance, or use another software suite to study the Bible, this training seminar is a wonderful opportunity to explore the possibilities which open up to pastors through these powerful tools.  See the attached pdf for more details, and follow this link for more details on what will be covered during the seminar and to register for the training.

Note: You must register for the seminar through the Accordance web-site!
