Workshops on Biblical Exposition
SEPTEMBER 27-29, 2018

Please note: The cost for this Workshop is listed in $USD.
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.

Colleen McFadden joined the Charles Simeon Trust in 2007 and currently serves as the Director of Women's Workshops. Prior to working with the Trust, she was in the corporate world, most recently as a Business Development Manager at a major insurance corporation. Colleen earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Illinois and an MDiv from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Colleen teaches and trains women in her local congregation, Seven Mile Road Church, and serves on the board of Matthias Media Ministries.
