Timetable Of Plan To Teach Pastors 27/03/14

Teaching notes for all subjects are available. These are only to help you if you want to
use them. You, the teacher must decide what to use and what not to use.

I. First section. Two weeks to teach Introduction to Africans Teaching Africans.

II. Second section--Old Testament Survey –32 weeks. Be flexible and take a few extra
weeks if needed, but keep moving toward finishing the teaching as soon as you can.
The idea is to just teach the big picture to your class. Teaching notes are available.
Genesis three weeks
Exodus three weeks
Leviticus, Numbers, & Deuteronomy three weeks
Joshua-Judges-Ruth three weeks
1 & 2 Samuel three weeks
Kings-Chronicles four weeks
Ezra-Esther—three weeks
Job-Song of Solomon four weeks
Introduction to prophets, major and minor Prophets six weeks

III. Third section New Testament Survey—31 weeks; a possible plan is:
Gospels six weeks—explain synoptic gospels and concentrate on one or two gospels.
Acts three weeks
Romans four weeks
Paul’s other letters seven weeks
Hebrews three weeks
James, Peter’s letters, John’s letters and Jude five weeks
Revelation two weeks.
Review of Bible one week

IV. Church Doctrine six weeks

V. Bible interpretation and sermon preparation—six weeks

Vi. Practice preparing sermons and delivering them. This will require the class to
demonstrate that they can faithfully preach and teach God’s Word. The time needed for
this section will depend on how many students the class has. The final exam is for each
preaching student to deliver a sermon that is true to the Bible. Each student who
preaches a true Bible sermon is eligible to receive a certificate.

Vii. This timetable calls for 77 weeks of classroom teaching and as, much time as
necessary to preach a Bible sermon. All timetables are suggestions and you can add a
few weeks to each section if you need to. It is expected to take about 18 months to
complete the training. Periodic breaks can be taken. The time of the program is
designed to be flexible and can be changed as needed. We do insist that the above
curriculum be taught.
