Since pastors and teachers need to fulfill the mandate of preaching God’s Word (2 Timothy 4:1-4), the Communicating God’s Word (CGW) Expository Preaching Program (EPP) has developed a Masters of Arts in Biblical Exposition academic program that is designed to train pastors and teachers whom God has called into the pastoral and teaching ministries. This program has been intentionally and strategically created in such a way as to provide preachers and teachers with the necessary abilities not only to do expository preaching and teaching but also to train and mentor others to become expository preachers and teachers who focus their ministry in the proper interpretation and communication of God’s Word.
- Learn the Proper Exegetical Procedure for Biblical Exposition.
- Learn the Priority and Methodology of Biblical Exposition.
- Develop the Skills Needed to Train and Mentor other pastors and teachers in Biblical Exposition.
This program consists of fifteen online courses taught over four years. Each course spans sixteen weeks in length. Thirteen courses are equivalent to three semester credits each. One course is equivalent to one semester credit, and another is equivalent to two semester credits. The total amount for the program is forty-two semester credits.
