This class is designed to help people learn how to prepare and deliver inductive Bible studies and expository sermons or talks without having a seminary education. In every church there are several categories of teachers and preachers. Some are seminary trained, others have studied up a bit, read some books and learned by trial and error, and still others have never studied, have never read any books or attended any classes on how to prepare Bible studies and sermons and yet they are doing the best they can to faithfully teach and preach God’s Word.
A seminary education is helpful, but most people do not have the ability or desire to attend seminary so they can teach the Bible. Yet the church has tended to neglect those who do want to teach and preach, but who are not called into vocational ministry. Most lay teachers and preachers have been left on their own to figure out the art and science of Bible and sermon preparation and delivery. It is for this reason this class is being taught. My goal is to help Christians who have the desire to teach and preach the Word, learn how to do so with clarity and accuracy.
