The Online Workshop is a 2-day, live, online training event aimed to encourage and equip you in the skills needed to read, understand, and proclaim the Word of God. The Workshop includes times set aside for 1) Principles of Exposition (instructional sessions on how to better handle biblical texts), 2) Small Group Practice (when you will share and receive feedback on one passage of scripture you prepare in advance), and 3) Expositions (the opportunity to sit under the Word). Each of these sessions is carefully designed to be interrelated for the greatest value in improving your work. In other words, this is a Workshop and not a conference. If you cannot be at all the sessions, then it really isn’t for you.

It is important to note: Partial participation is not permitted. Our pedagogical commitments in the small group sessions as well as the cumulative relationship between the small group and plenary sessions, full participation is required.

Who Should Attend?

The Online Women’s Workshops are generally for women who are currently in a teaching ministry with the responsibility to teach the Bible regularly.
