The Centre for Expository Preaching

A ministry of KVBC Trust 

Nurturing Faithful Expositors

We seek to provide pastors, teachers and ministry leaders with a firm grounding in expository ministry through seminars, courses and workshops on biblical exposition.

Handling the Word Effectively

Most churches recognise that effective faithful preaching and teaching of God’s Word occupies a central role in the local church. Yet many also readily acknowledge that, while leadership and ministry training programmes abound, intentional training and nurturing of preachers and teachers who can rightly and effectively handle the Word remains one of the most pressing needs in the local church.

Centering 6 Core Principles

CEP seeks to address this gap by offering training that focuses on expository preaching. CEP training combines classroom instruction, model expositions, and extensive hands-on exercises in small groups that teaches and models six core principles of expository preaching.

  • Staying on the line of Scripture, never straying above or below.
  • Letting the Bible shape our frameworks rather than letting our frameworks shape our ‘interpretations’ of the Bible.
  • Teaching the emphasis of our text well by first apprehending the structure.
  • Understanding how the original audience understood a text in order to know how it applies today.
  • Understanding the whole book in order to better handle each specific text.
  • Showing the Gospel at every point in order to teach the Bible as Christians.
