‘Train To Teach’
This is a conference to build up, strengthen & equip young leaders, who will build up the next generation. However, what exactly happens at KVBC Next Gen and what makes people come back? Here are 4 things that make up the conference:
1. Training Groups
Training groups are at the heart of KVBC Next Gen. You will be placed in a strand group where you will be taught a model to help you understand and teach the Bible, specific to your ministry (teens, campus or young adult). The training groups are:
Year 1 – Strand 1 : New Testament Exegesis
You will learn a model that will enable you to understand and teach a passage faithfully and confidently. You’ll learn the importance of the Big Idea and get to write your own Bible study from a New Testament passage.
Year 2 – Strand 2 : Old Testament Exegesis
(Required to have completed Strand 1)
You will build upon the model you learnt from Year 1, but this time the focus will be the Old Testament, specifically Biblical Theology. You will learn how to understand and teach an Old Testament passage, in light of Christ, and applying it today.
Year 3 – Strand 3 : Systematic Theology
(Required to have completed Strands 1 & 2)
You will build upon the model from Years 1 & 2, but this time the focus is learning how to think theologically. You will learn how to understand and teach any topic in a gospel-centred way.
2. Bible talks
Part of the NextGen program is to hear clear Bible talks each morning and evening. During these session delegates will be able to see first-hand some of the things they’ve learnt during the week being applied. The speakers are all active and seasoned practitioners of what Next Gen represents.
3. Ministry Enhancing Workshops
Workshops provide leaders with tailored guidance on leadership in the areas of youth ministry and children’s ministry. Eg. The Personal Life of a Leader, Leading Small Groups, How to Share the Gospel.
4. Mutual Encouragement
Meet the trainers at Next Gen – experienced leaders, eager to share their knowledge, experience and tips for ministry! There are also many opportunities for fellowship, encouragement and bonding with delegates from various churches. It’s an experience not to be missed!
