The Workshops on Biblical Exposition is a 3-day 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 two passages 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.
This year’s Workshop in Boston is unique in that it is focused exclusively on principles and tools that move us from our studies to our pulpits – with the aim of persuasion always in mind. Preaching is more than just exegesis and theology. Preachers must know how to encourage and convince, how to inspire and humble. In short, we have to know how to persuade.
This special Workshop on Biblical Exposition is a 3-day training event aimed to encourage and equip pastors with the tools needed to move from our studies to our pulpits– with the aim of persuasion always in mind.
The Workshops on Biblical Exposition are generally for people who are responsible for regularly preaching and teaching. We also welcome those in bi-vocational ministries as well as those training for ministry.
The most important aspect of a Workshop is the time in Small Groups. As such, it is essential that each person arrives prepared for these sessions. You will need to be prepared to present on 2 different passages.
