A few weeks ago, I went to the YWAM centre in the Bavarian village of Hulach Germany, to attend an international gathering of leaders and staff involved in the School of Biblical Studies (SBS).
Also gathered were people involved in many related ministries, most of which were ‘spin offs’ from the SBS. It was quite a historic event laying foundations for the next phase of growth for this ministry.
One of the best things about these times is meeting up with friends and colleagues as well as hearing what God is doing around the world. We had Don Gilman, who is the East Asia director for YWAM’s frontier missions ministries speak to us. After telling many stories about the impact the SBS is making in places where there are new church plants and in restricted access nations, there was a heart cry from him for greater partnership between the SBS world and Frontier Missions. The response to this can be seen on You Tube at:
One of the new ministries of SBS international is a website with teaching from some of our SBS leaders on books of the Bible. You can check this out on: http://www.thesbspodcast.com/
If you look hard enough, you will find a series I have done on Luke’s Gospel.
Right now I am in Sweden (until Friday) teaching the Bible Core Course, we are looking at Old Testament law material and especially Deuteronomy. To see how the students light up when they see the relevance and significance of the law for today, and more than that, how wonderful the God of the law is, never get old.
