The Online Biblical Teaching and Preaching School (BTPS) is in the process of being created, with individual modules becoming available as each is finished. This is a dynamic hands-on course, which allows students to gain confidence and begin to develop expertise in the public communication of the Word of God in a way that is relevant and serves their audience.
The aim of the school is to prepare students, who already have a thorough understanding of the Scriptures, for the ministry of teaching and/or preaching in both a local church setting, Christian classroom and on the mission field. The students learn practical skills in effective communication, and they are given help in focused study and heart preparation.
Alongside the ministry development there is an emphasis on the student’s continued character growth, recognising that the authority of a speaker lies in the integrity of their lives. The intended result is the preaching and teaching of a message rooted in an accurate interpretation of the Bible and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Online BTPS involves disciplined self-study, written work, and teaching and preaching assignments, with a set time assigned for each module. You will be connected to a staff person who will support you through the course.
