Our goals, vision, and origin story
A Modern Day School of the Prophets
Our vision with Gospel Scholar is to have a modern-day School of the Prophets. A place where you can go to learn any gospel-related topic so well that you could present/defend it with accuracy if needed.
One day while attending my religion class at BYU, my professor informed the class that he would be out of town for a funeral and would miss the next class. He told us that he would record a video of himself teaching and send it to us.
The video he created covered race & the priesthood as well as polygamy…I was blown away by the video. I had grown up in the church but had never heard 1/2 of the things I learned that day.
After watching, I shared the video with my wife and several friends and family members. They all expressed similar feelings that they wished more material was broken down and presented in an easily digestible format.
Shortly after this experience, I felt prompted to start Gospel Scholar so that all who desired to increase in knowledge could easily do so through these courses.
