Gospel Advance is again hosting a Charles Simeon Trust Workshop on Biblical Exposition at Clifton Park Community Church, October 18-20, 2017. The purpose of the workshop is to increase the participant’s confidence and ability in rightly handling God’s Word. We want each person to leave convinced that God’s Word is powerful and eager to teach it to their people.
A successful Workshop on Biblical Exposition has three essential components: Principles: the leaders will present clear, simple instructions on interpreting and explaining the message of the Bible in an accurate and accessible way. Practice: the Small Groups consist of 6-10 participants who have each prepared assigned texts and are ready to interact with the other group members and a trained group leader in order to improve their skills in a hands-on way. Preaching: there will be an exposition from one of the leaders, demonstrating the value of sitting under the Word of God.
We will be led by Aaron Messner and Stephen Bickley as we work together in New Testament Epistles — specifically in 2nd Timothy.
We start on Wednesday morning, October 18, and finish at Noon on Friday, October 20. Lunches and refreshments are included in your registration. Lots of housing options here in Clifton Park. Join us!
