Description

Join us for three special sample sessions of Gateway Academy! These sessions will feature a selection of topics from our Gateway Academy semesters, and will give yo a taste of what Gateway Academy is all about!

These sample nights will discuss a number of topics, including:

Jews, Israelites & Hebrews: Are they all the same people? with Martin Trench
This one small piece of information will open up the whole Bible in a new way and explain who the 12 Tribes of Israel, the 10 “Lost” Tribes, the Jews, “Abraham’s seed”, and the Gentiles were (and are today).

Inspiration, Collection & Cannon (Biblical Studies) with Dan Taylor
An exploration of how we have come to receive the collection of writings we call The Bible. We will focus on the historical facts surrounding the collection and canonization of the 66 book traditional Bible. The intended outcome is that the class will confidently be able to describe how we received our Scriptures.

The Century of the Holy Spirit with Martin Trench
From the Welsh revival to the Pentecostal movement to Apostolic networks today, the 20th century truly was the century that the church re-discovered the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts, and signs & wonders.

Genres & Forms with Dan Taylor
The Bible is, at its most basic, a collection of literature. God’s inspiration of literature was an intentional act. In this class, we will discuss the different genres of Biblical literature and how that ought to change how we read.

The New Testament Church with Martin Trench
Why do so many denominations have different church structures? What was the structure and ministry of the early church like? We will look at the Two-winged church, the place of spiritual gifts, Biblically qualified Elders, the office of Deacons, and the Five-fold ministry of Ephesians 4

Weird, Wonderful, and Wacky with Dan Taylor
There are multiple Bible stories that are more violent, more bizarre, and more comical than anything that our entertainment industry is producing. In this class we’ll discuss some of the strange murders, betrayals, and diplomatic blunders that God inspired in his book and see if we can learn to love and enjoy his word a little bit more.

So if you’ve ever wished to take your faith to the next level, or you’ve been wanting to be discipled & grow in your relationship with Christ, Gateway Academy is the perfect opportunity for you. Get a taste of what is coming this fall, and join Martin Trench & Dan Taylor for our free Gateway Academy Sample Nights!
