St James Church, Kenilworth is excited to host the

1st Charles Simeon Trust Workshop in Biblical Exposition

25-27 July 2017

This workshop is for those who have responsibility for the regular public preaching ministry of the Word of God and for men preparing for that kind of ministry. It is designed to strengthen every pastor’s ability to better understand and proclaim the Word of God with the goal of strengthening every local church. In their statement of the rationale for Workshops, the Charles Simeon Trust states:

“It is our conviction that the health of the Church depends on the proclamation of God’s Word.  The spiritual health of the Church is derived from the preaching of the Scriptures through the power of the Holy Spirit by preachers and teachers who really believe the Bible to be the words of God.”

The workshop includes a combination of interactive instructional sessions, encouraging exposition, and small group workshops where every participant works through passages of Scripture and gets to present a prepared talk outline for 2 selected passages. Each preaching conference focuses on a specific genre of Biblical literature. This workshop is 2 Timothy: A Strategic Vison for Gospel Ministry  and will be exploring 2 Timothy. We hope to host these workshops on an annual basis and systematically work through the different genres of Scripture.

The workshop is from 25 – 27 July 2017 and will be at St James Church, 114 Third Avenue, Kenilworth. The cost is R250 before 30 June and includes lunch and materials. Space is limited, so please register online as soon as possible.

We would encourage you to invite other pastors in your church or area who would also benefit from this training.
