Another step in the culture of grace

One of the things we need to be at Bordeaux Church is a training ground for future workers.
Of course, this happens in various ways and at different levels.

Preaching through John should encourage us all to hone our skills at explaining the gospel to people.

Reading, discussing and praying together in pairs and small groups is like little seminar groups.

The list could go on, but we need more focused training opportunities, too.

Some of our guys could do with preaching - perhaps for the first time. To preach with us would be much less daunting than in their megachurches with the stellar pastors back home.

And our women have real potential, too. We need to provide appropriate next step training opportunities for people, with the understanding that it's OK to mess it up, though I think they know that already from our example :-D .
