Due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 events. This decision has come after much consideration and prayer, and we believe it is the wisest and safest course of action at this time. Thank you for understanding.

2 Timothy reminds us that we have been entrusted with a message to proclaim and a gift to steward. We hope you can join us for this Women’s Training Network event to hear from 2 Timothy and be further equipped to pass on what has been entrusted to us.

Registration fee is $89. Saturday lunch is included in your registration fee. When registering, you will select the track you’d like to attend; please see track descriptions below. To see a basic schedule and learn more, you can visit our webpage. We are grateful to Faith E Church for hosting this event!

Available Tracks

Bible Interpretation 

This is our foundational track that we believe everyone can benefit from, whether you are learning these tools for the first time or thinking through how you can teach them to others. This track covers Bible study methods through a series of sessions, including an entry-level story of Scripture workshop, genre work, introduction to the interpretation process, and hands-on practice in groups. If you’ve never thought about tools for Bible interpretation, we hope you consider attending this track, as these tools are assumed in the other tracks offered.

Workshop 1: The One Story of Scripture – Shana Powell

Workshop 2: How to Study the Bible – Mary Liebert

Workshop 3: Practicing Bible Interpretation – Mary Liebert

Ministry Practicals

This track is intended for women hoping to be further equipped in practical ways to minister in the local church, our neighborhoods, our families, and our spheres of influence. Assuming a basic understanding of Bible interpretation, the workshop discussions will take the next step and get very practical about how we use our Bibles to serve others!

Workshop 1: How to Teach Someone How to Share the Gospel – MeeHee Kirby

Workshop 2: How to Make Disciples who Make Disciples – Shana Powell

Workshop 3: How to Start a Neighborhood Ministry – Shana Powell

Advanced Bible Topics: Old Testament

This track is designed for women who are ready for higher-level workshops, giving the opportunity to do a deep dive into specific biblical principles with one passage in view.  We will focus on important topics relating to the Old Testament. In all of these discussions, we will see how individual parts tie to the whole and point to Christ. This track is intended for women who are already teaching the Bible and want to continue to grow in their understanding.
