Instructor: Alex Bauman, executive director of Regular Baptist Press (See bio.)

What should I know about adult learners, and how should that insight affect my teaching? What should be the primary goals for my teaching? What should guide my selection of materials? How can I engage my students in my lessons? This course will give you practical answers to these questions as you seek to become a more effective teacher of adults.This course will also help you teach other teachers of adults how to be more effective.

  • “The Sacred Art of Crafting a Message” Learning Lab (4 sessions)
    First session: Thursdays, April 18 at 11 ET/10 CT/9 MT/8 PT REGISTER.

Instructor: Scott Poling, pastor of Harvest Baptist Church, Oswego, Ill. (See bio.)

This course will challenge and encourage you to take your sermon preparation to a new level of effectiveness and fruitfulness. We will review the solemn responsibility of being called by God to speak on His behalf as well as delve into what it takes to craft a sermon by looking at the nuts and bolts of outlining, illustrating, and applying a passage. Whether this is your first year in ministry, or you have been in the pulpit for 50 years, this course will sharpen your communication of God’s Word.
