"Preach the Word; be ready in season and out of season." All walking Christians will find the need to communicate God's truths to Christians and non-Christians. This workshop helps to develop those skills or gifts for young Christians, and helps the experienced teacher expand and deepen their work in the teaching ministry. Whether you teach in a public setting, home group, or one-on-one, God can use this workshop to bring his Word into the hearts of your listeners in a more impactful manner.

What would you do differently the next time you teach?
