Sermon & Bible Study Prep Training Series

  • Vineyard Theatre 108 East 15th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

Have you ever wondered if God might have you lead a Bible study or preach a Bible-based sermon someday? Well, Hope Hill Church is excited to begin training you to do so. We’re offering a practical workshop series that will unlock strategies for how to prepare and present effective lectures that will help others.

Public speaking can be terrifying for many of us — even if it is in a small group setting. But the reality is that you can help many people if you overcome this fear and gain the tools to effectively communicate truth. Just do it! We believe its time to start preparing for your future calling — whatever that calling may be — and we’re happy to help.

This sermon prep workshop will cover the following:

  • How the Bible plays a central role in preparing a sermon or Bible study

  • How to select a passage from the Bible to teach from

  • How to outline your sermon notes

  • How to prepare handouts for your audience/participants

  • How to prepare introductions and conclusions with application points

  • And more

Applying What We Learn

In the end, you will be equipped to prepare a sermon and lead a Bible study. In the later classes we will allow attendees the opportunity to prepare and give a short Bible teaching or sermon. Furthermore, in order to apply what we’ve learned, we will organize a trip to a local nursing home or teen detention center to actually use the skills we’ve developed to help others. This is an exciting opportunity for the people of Hope Hill Church to take the next step in their calling from God to reach out to the world.
