Biblical training for church leaders.

Leaders in Christ’s church must know the story being told in the Bible. We can help. We offer several unique kinds of teaching material that are designed to help leaders and future leaders grow in their knowledge of God’s word and pass these truths on to others. We also offer, when possible, on-site training.

These resources from Hands to the Plow interpret Scripture carefully and faithfully and supply theological wholeness and life for a world in desperate need of God’s truth. The authors are deeply committed to Jesus and to seeing him celebrated and proclaimed among the neighborhoods and the nations, and I strongly encourage churches both near and far to utilize these resources to train their people.

I am nearing the end of my fifth year as a pastor and the Preacher’s Guides have been such a help and a blessing. I am so grateful to have one of the guides when I am preaching through a book in the Bible. As a church we just finished a year in the book of Revelation. I was so thankful to have the Preacher’s Guide as a source as I studied throughout the week preparing for a message. What I appreciated the most is how the author references the Old Testament passages that John was referring to when he wrote the book of Revelation. I have personally grown through this study and have gotten better myself at seeing how often the New Testament writers are pulling from the Old Testament. These resources are such a blessing for any believer.

We are grateful for these study materials and we use them in our pastor and leaders seminars. It is a joy to go through the Scriptures with church leaders throughout Asia and then receive reports that they are taking these studies and multiplying them in their churches and home Bible Studies.

I have never been more excited to use a teaching material as I am with the Developing Leaders six-part series. As you know, one of the biggest challenges facing our pastors and leaders is how to teach difficult parts of Scripture - especially in the Old Testament. This material helps connect the dots from Genesis to Revelation all the while focusing on the line that connects all the dots and that of course is Jesus. I have used this material with pastors and leaders in the Dominican Republic and here in the United States and not only was it well received with many eyes being opened, but they are also excited to not only use the material themselves but also to start the next gear!
