Biblical Teaching and Preaching School

 The goal of the Biblical Teaching and Preaching School is to equip you  to communicate the truth of the Bible in a wide variety of circumstances. You will learn to teach and preach to audiences of any age, culture, and educational background.

This course is centered on the practical, focusing on the actual teaching of scripture not simply educational theory and teaching techniques. After twelve weeks of classroom and practice teachings, there is a four week internship with a local church.  In this internship the student will be given opportunities to practice teaching and preaching in a local church environment under the mentorship of a local pastor. Then after completing the lecture phase you will have the option to plan your own cross cultural outreach that will further equip you for teaching and preaching in almost any environment God may call you to serve.

Examples of topics covered in this course:

  • Basic public speaking and communication skills
  • The lifestyle and character of a teacher
  • Expository Preaching
  • Topical Preaching
  • Evangelistic Preaching
  • Teaching and Preaching to children and Youth
  • Engaging the current culture and understanding world view
  • Learning styles
  • Using technology in teaching and preaching
  • Cross cultural Teaching and Preaching
  • Small Group Teaching
  • Methodical Biblical Teaching
  • Teaching oral communicators
