Kay Arthur

Teacher, Host, Founder of Precept Ministries International

Kay Arthur’s exciting, practical approach to the Scriptures has influenced thousands to use the Precept™ Inductive Bible Study Method in their personal studies. Her distinguished Christian character, Bible teaching, championing of biblical literacy, 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 Word.

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. After serving as missionaries in Mexico they moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and in 1970 founded Precept Ministries. Their son David currently leads the ministry.

Kay is the teacher and host of Precepts for Life™, a daily television, radio, and online program which takes the student through the Bible book-by-book, verse-by-verse using the Inductive Bible Study Method. Precepts For Life TV and Radio reaches more than 75 million households each day and more than 30 countries while the online program is available to almost everyone on the planet.

Kay currently resides in Tennessee.
