Village Training returns for 2018 – in a brand new timeslot!
Use your June long weekend this year to deepen your understanding of God’s word – and pick up some valuable ministry skills to help you serve Jesus here at Village – and for your entire life.
Strands 1, 2 and 3 will continue to sharpen and knowledge of God’s word, and how to teach it. Our new ‘ministry electives’ will help you put God’s word into action, serving others at church and further afield.
Strand One – You will learn a model that will enable you to understand and teach a passage faithfully and confidently. You’ll learn the importance of the Big Idea and how to write your own Bible study from a New Testament passage. If this is your first training event of this kind – choose this option!
Strand Two – You’ll build upon the model you learned from last year, but, this time, the focus will be the Old Testament, specifically Biblical Theology. You’ll learn how to understand and teach an Old Testament passage, in light of Christ, and apply it today.
Strand Three – You’ll build upon the model from strands one and two but, this time, the focus is learning how to think theologically. You’ll learn how to understand and teach any topic in a gospel-centered way.
Village training will run Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and then Monday 11th June (Public Holiday) 2018 – only one day off work. Apply for your leave from work now to avoid disappointment.
This is a great way to grow at being better equipped to handle God’s Word over the Queen’s birthday long weekend in 2018.
