Our church is hosting a Simeon's Trust Workshop for pastors with David Helm March 20-22, 2013. David is an excellent teacher with a passion to see preachers gain the necessary tools for preaching and teaching God's word---in this case, Old Testament Narrative.
The Workshops on Biblical Exposition aim to recover the centrality of God's Word, preached expositionally, to the benefit of the life and health of the church in our generation. In order for this kind of preaching to take place, the Bible must be properly understood and rightly handled. And so, this workshop consists of two and a half days covering Principles of Exposition (instructional talks on how to better handle Biblical texts), Model Expositions (engaging demonstrations of expository sermons), and Small Group Practice (times when you will share and receive feedback on two passages you prepared in advance). Each of these sessions is carefully designed to be inter-related for the greatest value in improving your work.
Pastors, I highly recommend this seminar and hope you'll consider joining us. When our pastoral team attended one last year it was one of the best training contexts we'd ever participated in.
Here's the registration and hotel information for the workshop.
