School of Preachers
Eastgate's School of Preachers is designed to equip men and women to teach God's word in a relevant way in whatever setting they find themselves in. The School of Preachers is a seven session (possibly more depending on numbers) interactive training program. Not all of us are called to be Pastors or Preachers but all Christians are called to share and teach the word of God.
These sessions are not just listening to Steve tell you what to do. There will be plenty of time for group discussion and each student will prepare a 10 minute Bible Talk to present to the group to receive constructive feedback.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO ATTEND EASTGATE BIBLE CHURCH IN ORDER TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS TRAINING COURSE.
