For some reason, studying and teaching the Bible seems a bit mysterious to many of us. We admire those who can explain a text to us, but we don’t know how to follow in their footsteps.

Observing the “finished product” of someone’s work often makes us feel like we are at a gourmet meal. We appreciate the presentation, but long to know the recipe: the tools and ingredients they used to create it.
Thankfully, the Bible is not an inaccessible book with meaning that only the elite can access. You, too, can learn how to use study tools which will help you accurately ‘feed’ those you are teaching and leading. 

Who is the ‘Women In The Word” workshop for?

This event is focused on teaching people to use specific study tools to guide the interpretation and application of Biblical passages and is open to women who are interested in teaching and leading others in Bible study. The training will be applicable whether you are working with children, youth, young adults, women or coed study groups.  There will be a combination of up front teaching and small group work through the book of Colossians, and we are certain that you will leave on Saturday feeling better equipped and encouraged to study and teach the Bible.

Where is the workshop?

Polly Long from Regent College will provide us with information on the setting and genre of Colossians, and teach through one passage.
