Word Research is the Bible teaching ministry of Don Howatt, also known as Don “The Ups Guy".  Don is the co-founder of the Portland Oregon based Progressive Rock Band The Apostle Fractal. 
Along with making music, Don's other great passion is studying and teaching the WORD of God--The Bible.  

Don lives in Portland, Oregon with his beautiful wife Drenda and three beautiful daughters, Anna, Rachel, and Ellie.  At Word Research our goal is to make the scriptures come alive to you in your life.  

Here you can subscribe to the WORD Research Podcast. This Podcast features some of the sermons Don and his friends have delivered, as well as shorter “in studio” perspectives dealing with a wide range of issues. 

Our hope is that you will be blessed by your visit.

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
