Workshop on Biblical Exposition
MARCH 14-16, 2013
The Charles Simeon Trust aims to help recover the centrality of expository teaching of the Word of God, for the health and benefit of the church in our own and future generations. We also take seriously the instruction of Titus 2, which directs women to “teach what is good, and so train the young women….” Women are called to teach and live as models to other women so “that the word of God may not be reviled.” Training women to teach the Bible to other women is vital for building up the church and equipping its members to live out the truths of the gospel. The workshop is designed for women who serve in regular teaching ministries, including large group instructors, small group teachers and women’s ministry leaders appointed by their churches.

Carrie Sandom is Associate Minister for Women and Pastoral Care at St John's Church, Tunbridge Wells in England. She has served in women’s and student ministry for almost 20 years. Carrie also trains women for Bible teaching ministry at the Cornhill Training Course in London and is a frequent speaker at ministry conferences and conferences for women all over the world. Carrie is the author of Different By Design: God's Blueprint for Men and Women.
