What is this study about?

Whether you’re simply a new believer, a Sunday School goer, or you’re a teacher, we would like to invite everyone to join us for our new Monday night study. In this study, we will be going back to the basics of Christianity in order to prepare every Christian to faithfully communicate the gospel with others. We will be going through the key principles and practices that help us keep our teaching, from preparation to delivery, centered on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Every week will involve step-by-step, hands-on training and group workshops. Everyone is invited, but all Sunday School and other Bible study teachers are strongly encouraged to attend. If you are still interested in joining us for our Monday night study, please contact me at pastorjohn@waialaebaptist.com and we can add you to the list.
