A Personal Note From Catherine

How does a ministry like Quiet Time Ministries begin?

In 1994, I was preparing for my last year at Bethel Theological Seminary in San Diego, California. Soon I would have my Master of Arts in Theological Studies. One morning, as I sat in my family room spending time with the Lord, I began thinking of the frustration many friends had shared with me about their own quiet times. How to organize it? What books and resources to use? How to keep quiet time consistent, vibrant, and alive?

I prayed about the best way to teach and encourage others about quiet time with the Lord.

And then, I thought about The Quiet Time Notebook, a study resource I had been developing for many years for my own quiet time. How to reach others with this resource?

As I prayed, the Lord gave me the idea for a new ministry, one that would focus on the area of quiet time — teaching devotion to God and His Word. I decided to dedicate this new ministry to Jesus’ entreaty to quiet time in Mark 6:31 NASB, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.”

I was so excited, I called my husband and presented the vision to him. Well, we named the ministry on the spot, and Quiet Time Ministries was born. That, of course, was only the beginning. And then, I think of my good friend, Shirley Peters, praying for this new ministry at the very earliest stages. Even when Quiet Time Ministries was still a fledgling idea, she steadfastly prayed for its worldwide impact on the devotional lives of men and women. Little did I know how God would expand the scope and sphere of this ministry over the years.

Thank you for praying for Quiet Time Ministries!
♥ Blessings and Grace to You!

Catherine
Once I surrendered my life to the Lord Jesus, my life moved from a journey to an adventure — the great adventure of knowing God.

Quiet Time Ministries Outreach

Teaching Devotion to God and His Word
Catherine Martin founded Quiet Time Ministries in late 1993, and incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1997. Quiet Time Ministries is organized and operates exclusively for religious purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Board of Quiet Time Ministries favors an interdenominational approach, welcoming all believers to partner with us in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Quiet Time Ministries eternal tree logo alludes to the His promise portion of our Mission Statement — our commitment to teaching devotion to God and His Word.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose trust is the Lord, for he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends its roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but its leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought nor cease to yield fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 NASB
  • Statement of Faith | Mission Statement

    The Statement of Faith is derived from a Statement of Faith Integrating Motif and Outline — Copyright © 1993 – 2017 Catherine Martin — Quiet Time Ministries, All Rights Reserved, written by Catherine Martin while obtaining her Master of Arts in Theological Studies at Bethel Theological Seminary. Quiet Time Ministries begins its Mission Statement with the words “furtherance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in The Holy Bible,” the heartfelt goal for all Quiet Time Ministries Resources.

  • Catherine uses many Bible translations, both in her own quiet time and in composition. She prefers the New American Standard Bible, because she likes the English rendering to be as close as possible to the sense of the original Greek and Hebrew manuscripts, and because she finds the language to be excellent for memorization. In her quiet time, Catherine frequently uses Zodhiates’ Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible, an NASB Exhaustive Concordance, and her NASB Cross-Reference Bible. She often includes The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament, Wuest’s Word Studies in the Greek New Testament, and Frank Gaebelein’s Expository Bible Commentary series. Catherine has been using Logos Bible Software, especially The Scholar’s Library for years to enhance her research while writing books and messages. For her, the comprehensive search engine is worth the price of admission. Catherine has even attended seminars taught by Morris Proctor, one of the leading experts of the original Libronix software. Catherine also uses Logos Bible Software for the easiest and fastest comparison of Bible translations. For more information about recommended Bible study tools, please see Catherine’s signature work, Six Secrets To A Powerful Quiet Time – A 30-Day Journey. There is also an excellent list of Bible study tools in Appendix 4 of Knowing & LOVING The Bible – A 30-Day Journey.
    “But,” you say, “I just want some easy-to-use devotional studies I can do in my quiet time!” Knowing & LOVING The Bible comes to the rescue! Observation, Translation, Verse, Word, Character, Doctrine/Ethics, and Topical devotional studies are described in full detail. They’re easy to add to any quiet time. And the entire collection is available in The Devotional Bible Study Notebook. What is the authority for your belief? Catherine discusses The Truth About Truth – in Day Eight of Knowing & LOVING The Bible. The Holy Spirit empowers you to understand the Bible. Not withstanding all the wonderful Bible study tools available to the student of The Word, it is the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit that “makes the words meaningful to you, brings them to life, and applies them to your heart.” So says Catherine Martin, in Set My Heart On Fire — A 30-Day Journey, an adventure on how to experience the power of the Holy Spirit. Indeed, Day Fifteen – He Reveals God’s Word To You, of Set My Heart On Fire, is an entire chapter devoted to this exciting topic.
  • Internet Website | Social Network

From each and every resource – books, journals, electronic publications, The Quiet Time Notebooks, audio & video multimedia, and all website outreach – to every spoken and written word, our very purpose is teaching devotion to God and His Word.

  • Catherine Martin has authored over twenty-five books and print resources published by NavPress, Harvest House Publishers, and Quiet Time Ministries Press. Six Secrets To A Powerful Quiet Time is a signature publication by Catherine Martin, introducing The PRAYER Quiet Time Plan. The Lord gave Catherine The PRAYER Quiet Time Plan in one of her quiet times! It became the structural outline for The Quiet Time Notebook. Because of its versatility and flexibility, The PRAYER Quiet Time Plan is the framework for all of Catherine’s books of quiet times including the Quiet Times For The Heart Series and the A Quiet Time Experience Series, as well as the electronic publications, myPhotoWalk Publications. The PRAYER Quiet Time Plan answers the question, how do I really have a quiet time? For information about choosing a Bible to Read and Study God’s Word – the R in The PRAYER Quiet Time Plan – please see Six Secrets. And in Day Fifteen – Digging Deeper of Six Secrets To A Powerful Quiet Time, Catherine shows you how to use a Concordance and how to Cross-Reference a verse, sure-fire methods of discovering all the treasure that is God’s Word.
