Training Workshops

Do yourself the favor of a lifetime! Whether you are planning to teach one of our courses, or would like an intense study of the Bible to enhance your own understanding, you will find inspiration at one of CI’s workshops.

"As the most in-depth Bible study of my life, it was three years of seminary in three days and the best for help in understanding stories of the Old Testament in relation to the New Testament." -Rev. Willis Heckler, Zion’s Union Church (UCC), Topton,  PA

The Training Workshop will help you to feel confident and well-prepared for the task of teaching or facilitating discussion of our longer courses. It provides an intense overview of the grand sweep of the biblical narrative.
