The Online Biblical Teaching and Preaching School
Welcome to the Online Biblical Teaching and Preaching School
"For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach the statutes and ordinances in Israel". (Ezra 7:10)
The Online Biblical Teaching and Preaching School (BTPS) is a dynamic hands-on course which allows students to gain confidence and begin to develop expertise in the public communication of the word of God in a way that is relevant and serves their audience. The aim of the school is to prepare students, who already have a thorough understanding of the Scriptures, for the ministry of teaching and/or preaching in both a local church setting, Christian classroom and on the mission field. The students learn practical skills in effective communication, and they are given help in focused study and heart preparation. Alongside the ministry development there is an emphasis on the student’s continued character growth, recognising that the authority of a speaker lies in the integrity of their lives. The intended result is the preaching and teaching of a message rooted in an accurate interpretation of the Bible and in the power of the Holy Spirit.
While studying online, each student will be connected to both a course supervisor and fellow classmates.
The Online Biblical Teaching and Preaching School, when satisfactorily completed, fulfils the requirements for the University of the Nations Communications Core Course. For this equivalency, you need to have completed all the required modules, and the required number of electives. The two-week residential module is one of the required modules. At present we are unable to offer the full Online Biblical Teaching and Preaching School, as it is in the process of being created, but we can offer individual modules as they become available.
Each module is also a stand-alone course, with each being awarded either 1 or 2 credits with the UofN Extension Studies courses.
