Women In The Word Workshop 2020

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 properly ‘feed’ those you are teaching and leading.

On January 23-25, 2020, we are hosting a “Women in the Word” workshop at Northview Community Church in Abbotsford.  This event is focused on teaching people to use specific study tools to guide our interpretation and application of Biblical passages.  There will be a combination of up front teaching and small group work, and we are certain that you will leave on Saturday feeling better equipped and encouraged to study and teach the Bible. 

Who is the event for?

Women who are interested in teaching and leading others in Bible Study.  The tools will be applicable whether you are working with children, youth, young adults, women or coed study groups.

Who is providing the teaching?

Jan Hobbis and Bronwyn Short from St. John’s Vancouver , Polly Long who has been affiliated with Regent College and Kristal Toews from Northview Community Church in Abbotsford will be teaching.  They will be training you to implement study tools promoted by the Charles Simeon Trust
