Bringing into focus Bible, theology and mission: Adult learning for now.

  • Bible College teaching - live on your device wherever you are.
  • Teaching by high calibre, research active, Carey lecturers.
  • Gain a better understanding of the world you live in.
  • Help your church with its mission engagement. 

This new webinar series is a stimulating training resource for the ongoing development of leaders, practitioners, and volunteers.

Each month a new topic will be brought into focus: from theology, Bible, pastoral care, mission, youth, history, and culture. Our focus is on what you need to learn right now: material that will resource you in your current leadership and volunteer roles.

Each webinar will be an hour long, containing 40 minutes of content, with live Q&A. These will be recorded with ongoing access available online. Watch on your own, or together as a leadership team, or create a group to join together for this 8-month series. A short reading list will be included with each webinar.

$25 per webinar (individual or a group), or subscribe to them all for $150 (25% discount: get two free webinars).

This can be included in the ‘Learning’ component of Baptist Leaders’ Registration.
