From a 3-hour FastTrack to advanced study skills for the long-time Bible student and Leaders, we have a Bible Study Skills Workshop that will help you get the most from your Bible Study time.
Discovering God’s truth for yourself is a life-changing experience. If you long to know God and yearn for a deep and abiding relationship with Him, attend a Precept Ministries International Training Workshop and learn how to interact with God’s Word personally, absorb its meaning and let God engrave His truth on your heart, mind and life through using the age-old method of Inductive Bible Study. Learn to see truth for yourself, discern what it means, and apply that truth to your life.
Discipleship Training Workshops (3-hours)
The Precept Discipleship Training Workshops are 3-hour workshops designed to identify and equip existing and future Bible Study Leaders who will disciple others in Inductive Bible Study in the church, home, or workplace, in a group or one-on-one.
Even if you have had no experience leading a class, or discipling one-on-one, or if you’re new to the Inductive Study Method, this workshop is suitable for you to learn this proven method by using the 40-Minute Bible Studies.
By the end of this workshop, you will feel renewed, trained, and ready to join a group or begin making disciples using an Inductive Bible Study with confidence!
