The Biblical Preaching and Teaching track is uniquely designed to equip pastors in the art of preaching and teaching.
A graduate in the Biblical Preaching and Teaching Track will be capable of:
• Interpreting the Bible in a Christ-centered way
• Identifying the story of individual Bible texts
• Preaching or teaching the text within a broader biblical theology
• Preaching or teaching the text with sensitivity to the congregation

4 electives courses
Various courses fill the requirements of clusters (2), (3), and (4). These may vary year to year as new courses are introduced and may be taught by different professors.
The final project is meant to be a concrete case study. The student will offer exegesis of some portion of Scripture, showing its Christ-centered interpretation, its place amidst a wider biblical theology, and its contemporary relevance for the author’s or other contexts. The project concludes with a practical guide to employing this material in the church, whether as a teaching series or a framework for some other ministry, and measuring outcomes.
