WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

The Preaching of the Word

The Preaching of the Word

There will be daily morning and evening sessions, whereby all delegates meet together to sing and listen to the word of God being preached in an expository manner. During these sessions, delegates will be able to see first-hand the application of some of the things they’ve learnt during the week. NextGen preachers from the past years have come from various different churches across Malaysia and Australia, all of whom are active and seasoned Bible teachers!

Strand Groups

Strand Groups

Training groups are at the heart of KVBC NextGen. Delegates will be placed into “strand groups” where you will be taught how to read, understand and, faithfully teach the Bible, specific to your ministry. Strand groups will also be given free time throughout the conference so that delegates can get to know each other in an informal and fun setting!

Strand Groups

Strand 1

New Testament Exegesis

Strand 1

New Testament Exegesis

First time delegates will be automatically placed in this Strand. Here, you will be introduced to a model, which will help you understand the importance of considering the content and context of a passage, to arrive at the “Big Idea”, which will then shape the application of the passage.

As part of the training process, you will have the opportunity to write a Bible study on a selected passage New Testament. On the last day of NextGen, you will have the opportunity to present your study to the rest of your strand group.

    Strand 2

    Old Testament Exegesis

    Strand 2

    Old Testament Exegesis

    Delegates must have completed Strand 1 in the previous years before they are placed in this Strand. Here, you will be taught Biblical theology and how to understand the Old Testament in light of Jesus thus, shaping the application of the passage.

    Like Strand 1, you will have the opportunity to write a Bible study on a selected Old Testament passage. On the last day of NextGen, you will have the opportunity to present your study to the rest of your strand group.

      Strand 3

      Systematic Theology

      Strand 3

      Systematic Theology

      Delegates must have completed Strand 1 and Strand 2 in the previous years before they are placed in this Strand. You will be taught how to think about topics (e.g. Social Justice) in a gospel-centred manner. Develop your skills in systematic theology so that you can effectively pull together what the whole Bible has to say about particular topic.

      Like Strand 1 and 2, you will have the opportunity to write a Bible study on this selected topic. On the last day of NextGen, you will have the opportunity to present your findings to the rest of your strand group.
