The Global Preacher Training Center website is created and administered by the Broadway church of Christ in Paducah, Kentucky. The Global Preacher Training Center is the product of a cooperative effort between Broadway and the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver, Colorado. The primary purpose of the enterprise is to provide quality biblical training over long distances to men who will preach the gospel all over the world. We do this in two primary ways. First, we do this in live interactive class sessions with students in Denver; in Gorlovka, Ukraine (in Russian); and in Guatemala City, Guatemala (in Spanish) Secondly, we provide a recorded archive of classes that can be accessed by preachers, teachers, elders, and any seeking person anywhere in the world where there is a computer and a high speed internet connection.
The conduct of live classes enables students to directly interact with instructors at remote locations. The students can see the visuals of the instruction as well as the instructor and can hear the instructor in real time. We are looking to expand our number of receiving points to include places in Africa, India, Central America, and South America. The system allows for as many as four locations to listen live to a class at one time.
The recorded archive of classes is much more versatile for evangelists, missionaries, and bible students everywhere. Students can access the site on their PC and can choose from the menu of classes. When the student views the classes online, the student sees two screens on his/her PC screen. One small screen will contain the Instructor and the other screen will contain the power point or visuals. Students viewing the recorded classes can pause them, move the screens around and resize them, and take the classes at their leisure. Already, people from all over the U.S. and many different countries of the world are accessing these classes and getting great resources for their own ministries and their personal spiritual life.
The Global Evangelist Training Center is revolutionizing preacher training. This effort is dedicated to providing biblically sound in depth training to teachers and preachers everywhere. Our prayer is that the Lord will use this tool mightily for the expansion of his kingdom.
