We study the Bible together

  • Each morning begins with the word of God and prayer as a student gives an exposition.
  • A series of in-depth studies of Bible books, focusing on books like Exodus, Isaiah, Ecclesiastes, Minor Prophets, John, Romans, James and Revelation.
  • A Bible overview to tie our studies into a proper Biblical Theology.
  • A course in Biblical doctrinal themes.

Practicalities of the Course

We study the principles of Biblical preaching through:

  • a dedicated course in the principles of Expository Preaching
  • a course on the Principles of Exposition which runs through both years, etc

We expound Bible passages

Because part of the aim of the course is to teach students how to communicate biblical truth, there is plenty of opportunity for students to give practice talks.

This is done in small groups with constructive criticism given by Joe Fleener or another experienced minister.

We study Christian doctrine

There is a course on Evangelical essentials.
