Dwell: Scripture Memorization Program

This June, Aaron Denlinger, Catherine Kochie, and Michael Kochie introduced Arma Dei Academy’s Scripture memorization program, now known as Dwell on the basis of Scripture's injunction to "let the word of Christ dwell in you richly" (Col. 3:16), to the broader classical Christian world at ACCS’s Repairing the Ruins Conference.
