Kay Arthur - Co-Founder of Precept Ministries
Jack Arthur’s unwavering commitment to the Lord continues to impact the lives of countless people through his strong faithful service to the Lord Jesus Christ and Precept Ministries International.
Kay Arthur’s exciting, practical approach to the Scriptures has influenced thousands to use the Inductive Bible Study Method in their
personal studies. Her distinguished Christian character, Bible teaching, championing of the Inductive Bible Study Method, and national
radio and television programs motivate others to discover truth for themselves. Kay’s passion is for people to be established in God’s
At the age of 29, a divorced mother of two working as a nurse, Kay called in sick to the hospital where she was working
because she was sick at heart, sick over the life of sin she had been living. She had a religion but did not possess a relationship
with God. On the morning of July 16, 1963, she fell on her knees as a sinner and rose as
pure and whole in the Lord’s sight. “For ‘Whoever will call upon the name of the LORD will be saved’” Romans 10:13, (NASB). “Therefore
if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come” (2 Corinthians 5:17, NASB).
She hungered and thirsted for the Word of truth and began studying the Bible. Her relationship with the Lord and scriptural findings
turned her sorrows into joy and her mourning into laughter.
God’s love poured down upon her in 1965 when she married a
missionary with the Pocket Testament League named Jack Arthur. Together they served as missionaries in Mexico for three and a half
years until health issues led them back to the States. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, Jack began managing a Christian radio station, and
Kay began a teen Bible study. Though the study started as a small gathering in the living room of the couple’s home, it soon grew
from teens to college students to adults. From the beginning of the gatherings Kay’s and Jack’s deepest desire was to establish people
in God’s Word. The ministry they founded in 1970 became Precept Ministries International where they served together as CO-CEOs until
February 2012 when they stepped down and their son David assumed the role of CEO. Both Kay and Jack are still actively working at
