Introduction to the Old Testament

For Teachers, Youth Leaders, Clergy & You!

A Professional Development Day for Teachers, Clergy & All Involved in Christian Ministry

How often do you feel inadequate when you are challenged by students and others about the Bible, particularly the Old Testament? How often do you wish you knew just a little bit more so you could understand and explain it to those sitting in front of you?


Well, relax, help is at hand.

(That's you and me!)
