Workshops on Biblical Exposition - About the Workshops

The Simeon Trust is coming to Toronto to put on a Preaching Workshop

"The purpose of the workshop is to increase the pastor’s confidence and ability in rightly handling God’s Word. We also want them to leave convinced that God’s Word is powerful and anxious to preach it to their people. A successful Workshop on Biblical Exposition has three essential components:

Instruction–clear, simple principles of exposition for interpreting and explaining the message of the Scriptures in an accurate and accessible way.

Small Group Practice–hands-on groups made up of 6-9 men who come having prepared sermon outlines for certain texts and are able to interact with the other men and an instructor to hone their skills

Model Exposition–a gifted local pastor who models how exposition can be done well by giving one of his own expository sermons."
