Who we are

Scripture Memory Fellowship International motivates and equips memorizers of all ages to internalize God’s Word resulting in glory to God and faith in Jesus Christ (2 Tim. 3:15-17).

SMF offers structured Scripture memorizing materials in printed, digital, and musical form for families, churches, schools, and individuals. We also promote live events, such as Scripture Memory Camp and the 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.

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 responsibilites 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.
