The Gospel Coalition is delighted to introduce Women’s Training Network (WTN). TGC is dedicated to strengthening the church by training a network of women who are steeped in the Word of God. WTN is an initiative aimed at training women to use the Scriptures well, equipping them to faithfully read, interpret, apply, and teach the Word as they serve in every sphere of life to which they have been called: their churches, homes, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities.
You may have seen the work WTN is doing in collaboration with Coalición por el Evangelio, already planning events for women throughout Latin America. WTN will begin in the United States in 2019 with five regional training events, called Two-Day Intensives. WTN will partner with a local church or seminary to offer these events, and they’re open to any woman desiring to be further equipped. Different tracks will be offered to accommodate women with various levels of experience and knowledge. Our Women’s Training Network page is newly live if you want to find out more information about the events.
Taylor Turkington serves as director of Women’s Training Network. She holds an MA from Western Seminary, where she has also just completed her DMin. Taylor, her husband, and their daughter live in Portland, Oregon. She greatly enjoys the privilege of teaching and training women to use the Scriptures. Joining her are Courtney Doctor and Ann Westrate, serving as the coordinators for WTN.
Please join us in praying that God will bless these efforts so they will bear much fruit both in and through the lives of women all across the globe—and, as he does, that the church would be strengthened, the kingdom would grow, and the name of Christ would be proclaimed.
