Who we are

Scripture Memory Fellowship's mission is to cultivate systematic Scripture memorizers who know Jesus Christ and grow in His likeness for the glory of God. We do this by offering printed, digital, and musical Bible memory tools for every age group. We also promote live events, such as Scripture Memory Camp and Scriptorium, to cultivate the habit of obeying, the heart of understanding, and the art of presenting the life-giving words of God (Ezra 7:10; John 6:63; James 1:22).

Scripture Memory Fellowship was founded in 1977, utilizing the same materials developed for Bible Memory Association (BMA). Based in Texas, SMF operates primarily for North America but has partners in Spain, Indonesia, and beyond.


What we believe

We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the infallible God-breathed Word in their original writings and the only authoritative and all-sufficient rule of faith and practice. (Isa. 8:20: 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21)

We believe that there is one true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the same in essence and equal in power and glory. (Matt. 28:19-20; John 10:30; 2 Cor. 13:14)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious death by which we have redemption through His blood, in His bodily resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of the Father. (Matt. 1:21-23; Acts 1:11; 1 Cor. 15:3-4)

Meet the Staff


 Jim Woychuk 
Executive Director
Jim has been memorizing Scripture his whole life, but as a teenager, 1 Peter 5:7 awakened him to the the beauty of Christ's love. As an adult, Jim served as a pastor in Hannibal, Missouri for 12 years before becoming SMF's full-time executive director. His responsibilities are wide-ranging and include program development, ministry promotion, and strategic planning. Jim is happily married to his wife, Susan, and together they enjoy their three children: Faith, Jonathan, and Mary. Jim's father, Dr. N. A. Woychuk, founded SMF's parent ministry (BMA) in 1944.

She also contributes to the development of new SMF programs and resources. Laura is married to fellow staff member Dakota Lynch.

Dakota Lynch

Phil Walker 
Indonesia Representative
Phil's life was transformed by the words of Galatians 2:20--"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me." With his wife Jacky and four lovely children, Phil's passion is to spread enthusiasm for the Word of God among Bible College students in Indonesia, the Philippines, India, and beyond.
