Word Ministry I

Flexible Learning module

The Word of God is central to Christian ministry in all its various forms. In this module students will consider the theology of word ministry, the spirituality of the word minister and how to move effectively from text to sermon, talk or study.  

This module assumes a reasonable amount of prior training in the basics of handling Scripture for word ministry. It is ideal for someone who is looking to develop their skills in interpreting Scripture for ministry beyond the basics and to learn to think about word ministry theologically.

When I'm preaching or teaching the Bible, what is actually happening? What is God doing through my words? In light of that, how do I prepare to preach and teach well? And in particular how do I apply Scripture faithfully and powerfully? These are central questions for ministry which this module examines.”
