Metroplex-Central Area Group
Welcome to the Metroplex-Central Area Team!
Hi! My name is Adele Beers. I am a native of Longview, TX in the beautiful Piney Woods of East Texas. With the exception of a very brief time in California and four years in Colorado, I have lived in Texas all my life. I have lived in the Arlington/Grand Prairie area for the last twelve years. God has blessed me with two children, a handsome son and a beautiful daughter, both of whom are grown. Additionally, I am blessed with two lovely granddaughters who (somewhat sadly for me) are also grown now.
I accepted Christ Jesus as my Savior when I was nine years old. I was active in Girl's Auxiliary, Youth Group and in the BSU when I was in college. I raised my children in the church, attended church regularly, taught children's classes and participated in Bible Studies over the course of my adult life. However, during all this time I was never really discipled. I read and studied my Bible and thought I had a good knowledge of the Word....until I moved to Colorado.
I was first introduced to Precept Inductive Bible Study at the church I attended in Rifle, CO. I did not know much about Precept and knew even less about Inductive Bible Study, but I accepted the invitation to join the fall class that was about to start. Except for my decision to accept Christ Jesus as my Savior, that was the best decision I ever made! The study the group was starting that fall was the PUP on Covenant. I was blown away! That study changed my life, changed my perspective on many things and rekindled my desire to know God and His Word better. Needless to say, I was hooked! When I moved back to Texas four years later, I made sure that I found a church that had a Precept group. I joined the church and the group as soon as I could. The next thing I knew I was training to become certified as a Precept BSL and then I was leading a Precept class at my church! I led that class for the next six years. For the last sixteen years I have been either a Precept student or a BSL. Now I’m an ATL! God is so amazing and full of surprises!
As Area Team Leader for the Metroplex-Central Area Group, I am excited to see what God is going to do in this Area. It is my heart's desire to follow God as He leads me and uses me to recruit, lead and develop our Area Team. It is my prayer that together this Area Team will establish more people in God's Word by utilizing the 3D method...Discover, Go Deeper With Others and to Disciple. I want our Area Team to be intentional in supporting Bible Study Leaders and in developing new Bible Study Classes and Bible Study Leaders. There is no doubt in my mind that God has called me to this position for "such a time as this". I invite you to join us as we follow God in this endeavor.
