Bible Interpretation Track (Level 1)
This track covers Bible study methods through a series of sessions, including a basic level story of Scripture, genre work, introduction to the interpretation process, and hands-on practice in groups. This is our foundational track that we believe everyone can benefit from, and we hope you consider attending this one first.

Bible Study Methods – Adrienne Lawrence

Practicing Interpretation – Mary Liebert
Ministry Practicals Track (Level 2)
This track is intended for women hoping to be further equipped in practical ways for ministry in the local church. It might include topics like discipleship, how to organize and lead women’s Bible studies, how to facilitate a small group, how to teach the Bible to children, and/or how to do one-on-one Bible readings. This track gets very practical about how we use our Bibles to serve others!

The Story of Scripture in Your Ministry Track (Level 2)
In this track, we will look at the metanarrative of Scripture, and then discuss in each workshop how it influences the way we teach the Bible, the way we disciple women, and the way we share the gospel. We will seek to better understand how biblical theology influences all of our ministry.
The Beauty of The Story of Scripture – Mary Liebert
How the Story of Scripture Impacts our Discipleship – Whitney Woollard

Advanced Bible Topics Track (Level 3)
This track is designed for women who are ready for higher-level workshops. Building on the principles of Bible Interpretation, these topics dig deeper into Scripture structure and genre, always showing how individual parts tie to the whole and point to Christ. This track is a good option for women who are already teaching the Bible and want to continue to grow in their understanding.
