Workshops on Biblical Exposition
NOVEMBER 10-12, 2016
The Charles Simeon Trust aims to help recover the centrality of expository teaching of the Word of God, for the health and benefit of the church in our own and future generations. Training women to teach the Bible to other women is vital for building up the church and equipping its members to live out the truths of the gospel. This Workshop on Biblical Exposition is designed for women who are currently in a teaching ministry with the responsibility to teach the Bible regularly. It is open to women who lead in regular teaching ministries including large group instructors, small group teachers, and women’s and children’s ministry leaders appointed by their churches.

Deborah Lorentsen is active in the Women’s Bible Study at College Church in Wheaton where she serves as a regular lecturer, small group leader, and curriculum coordinator. She is an RN BSN having attended Taylor University, West Suburban Hospital School of Nursing, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. She also holds an MA in Biblical Studies from Wheaton College. Deb serves on the board of the Charles Simeon Trust.
