Stay sharp. Keep growing. Continue developing.

In Philippians 3 the Apostle Paul acknowledged that he had not yet “apprehended.” He was still growing and pressing forward. When it comes to our biblical knowledge, most of us would have to admit we have not arrived yet either. WCBC lecture series can help you continue to grow and develop in key areas of biblical study.

New equipping for new opportunities.

If you are transitioning to a new position or moving to new ministry responsibilities, you might need new equipping. Taking a “refresher” course on topics that you have previously learned can help you be more effective for Christ.

Take only the classes or subjects you want.

Choose a topic that would be helpful to you and do a concentrated study of just that subject. There is no need to take unrelated required classes. Take as many or as few as you would like.

Turn your down time into growth time.

Listen to classes and learn material while you are traveling, exercising, or doing other chores. It is amazing how much you will learn during your down time.
