"Teaching Women to Teach is a gift to women in the church. Rarely are such rich resources made available to equip women to faithfully teach the Bible. TWtT offers women access to world-class instruction and a lively learning community that is both practical and personal.

As one who was discerning a call to teach, this class prepared me with the necessary foundational tools while always pointing me to Jesus."

The Problem of  Disconnected Discipleship

“Older women … are to teach what is good.” Titus 2:3 ESV

With the ready availability of mass-produced curriculum, Christian women have increasingly come to rely on celebrity teachers, including those whose teaching does not reflect historic Reformed doctrines. They are often learning from video rather than women they personally know within the church.

As a Result:

  • Women’s ministries are slowly losing qualified teachers who can instruct other women in historic Reformed doctrines.
  • Christian women feel ill-equipped to teach because they lack role models and training within their own congregation.
  • Discipleship is not occurring within the context of genuine relationships, limiting women’s spiritual formation.

TEACHING WOMEN TO TEACH SERVES THE LOCAL CHURCH BY PROVIDING THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION TO WOMEN WHO TEACH OR ASPIRE TO TEACH IN THE CHURCH.

Since 2018, TWtT has trained hundreds of women to teach and disciple others so that women’s ministry can happen in the context of relationships, in accord with Reformed teaching, and under the authority of church leadership.

For more on the mission of TWtT, listen to a special episode of Help Me Teach the Bible by Nancy Guthrie featuring Leigh Swanson, Executive Vice President of RTS Orlando.

Equipped to Teach

Women are taught to read and teach the Bible so they can disciple others.

Even if they have never taught the Bible, they will leave equipped to teach in their church’s ministries and disciple other women to deeper spiritual formation in the context of relationships.

Teaching for Change

Fall 2022 | Sept 6, Oct 4, and Nov 1 from 7:00 – 8:30pm

This three-session term will focus on using the theological and exegetical tools of previous classes to prepare presentations which apply them for your listeners. Participants will prepare an expositional, a doctrinal, and an issue-based lesson. The monthly seminars will include workshopping material at discussion tables, with each evening concluding with a short reflection interview with an experienced women’s speaker. In between each evening session, a short “check-in” video lesson will enhance participant application and progress. Sessions will be led by Rev. Mike Glodo, Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology and Dean of the Chapel, who for 25 years has taught biblical studies, communication, preaching, and pastoral ministry at RTS.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: September 1
LOCATION: In-Person: Fellowship Hall on the campus of RTS Orlando. Online: Zoom at 7:00pm
REGISTRATION COST: $25 per person or $125 for an online group

TEACHING WOMEN TO TEACH HAS BEEN A HELPFUL AND ENCOURAGING TOOL FOR ME AS A TEACHER AND LEADER IN THE LOCAL CHURCH.

"As more and more women in our churches are influenced by the internet, the need to equip and train our own gifted women to rightly handle God's Word has never been more prevalent. TWtT has provided a rich opportunity for us to grow. This Spring we had 17 women from our church participate in TWtT! There isn't enough space to share all the ways that we have been helped by TWtT."
