The Women’s Training Network is part of The Gospel Coalition that exists to train women to use the Bible well, for the purpose of their own growth and for service to others, all for the glory of Christ. If you are interested in hosting a future training event in your area, please complete this form to help us envision what a training would look like in your area.
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.
