Certificate Program

This program provides intensive teaching and training in the art of expository preaching. The goal is to encourage and equip expositors of the Word of God to "rightly divide the Word of truth" in the power of the Holy Spirit. Also, the program seeks to form a fellowship of preachers who are willing to commit themselves to a ministry of faithful Biblical exposition.
