Introduction to our Bible Communicators Training

Why we need a new generation of Bible Communicators

Course overview

The course is presented in six episodes:

  1. INTRODUCTION: the task of communication
  2. FOUNDATION: exploring our theology of the Bible
  3. CONTEXTUALISATION: considering our culture and audience
  4. INTERPRETATION: how to dig into a passage of Scripture
  5. PREPARATION: how to turn a passage into a message

The training is delivered in a hybrid format – three online sessions and two in-person gatherings. You will have a mentor throughout the course and will also be given some free resources, extra reading and practical exercises to help you grow.
