The Gospel Coalition

Women's Training Network

We train women to use Scripture for their own growth and for service in God's kingdom—all for the glory of Christ.

We believe our teaching must be grounded in what God has said in his Word, so we base all we teach in the Bible and work to help women do the same. To use the Bible well we want to train women to interpret each text in its original context, understanding it within the overall story of Scripture, and applying its truth to life today. Simultaneously, all of Scripture leads us to the work of Jesus, so our instruction aims to help women recognize this connection and share it faithfully with others.

We believe the Bible teaches the gospel is not merely the entry point to the Christian life, but is also what Christians need to be reminded of in their daily walk. Therefore, our instruction takes a gospel-centered approach to apply God’s truth in all areas of life and ministry.

We believe all women should be equipped and encouraged in their ability to use Scripture well, as a disciple of the Lord Jesus. This will affect whatever area of ministry a woman serves. For example, she may lead a Bible study, raise children to know and love God, share the gospel with a co-worker through reading the Bible together, speak with a family member on current events from a biblical perspective, or teach a group of women in her local church.

Two-Day Intensive FAQ

We generally recommend women attend the Bible Interpretation Track at their first Two-Day Intensive. This practical track is foundational to all other tracks that we offer. If you already have a good grasp on these skills, this track can help you determine how to teach these skills to other women. However, you are welcome to select any available track!

We aim to keep the registration fee as low as possible, so this training can be available to many women. Because of this, we do not offer discounts.

There is no waiting list for specific tracks. If the track you are interested in is full, we invite you to select a different track and consider attending another Two-Day Intensive in the future!

Yes! Due to the capacity of each host location, the maximum capacity of these events vary from 200-500 women. We recommend registering as soon as possible to guarantee your spot!

If your preferred location has sold out, you are welcome to email us at [email protected] to inquire about a waiting list. If you’d like to add a group to a waiting list, please indicate how many women you’d like added to the list and be aware that if a spot becomes available, it is often one spot at a time.

Yes! The Women’s Training Network team will curate a bookstore with recommended resources based on the content discussed at each location. Be sure to bring a bag (or suitcase!) to take home any new books!
