RSL Ministries, Inc. officially began in April, 2021 with a weekly online Bible study. However, the seeds of this ministry were sown when Rev. Raquel S. Lettsome decided to bridge the gap between academic training and ecclesial service by showing ministers how to effectively integrate their theological training into their everyday practice of ministry. As she worked with ministers, she became increasingly aware of lay people's need for biblical education and sound scriptural interpretation. Moreover, she recognized that many ministers did not have a "safe space" to learn or continue studying Scripture for both congregational and individual growth. Thus, RSL Ministries, Inc. became the digital space used to aid Christians in interpreting the Scriptures for preaching, teaching, and living.
The goal of RSL Ministries is to provide biblical interpretation and training that has scholarly depth, spiritual insight, and practical application that is accessible to individuals regardless of religious/denominational affiliation, educational level, or ordination status.
