Teaching at Burmese Bible School is fulfilling

 

Introduction to Homiletics class, Burmese Bible School

On my right is Pastor Than Aung of Lyncourt Wesleyan’s  Burmese Congregation who translated and assisted me.  On my left is Pastor Par Thoo of Utica Karen Wesleyan Church and his wife.   The class followed an intensive schedule meeting for 10 hours each of three weekends during January.   The School is headquartered at Lyncourt Wesleyan Church and led by Dr. Thuam Khai in partnership with the local pastor, Rev. Wayne Wager, Jr.   It is sponsored by the Central New York District of the Wesleyan Church (http://www.missionforchrist.net/bbs).     Threads/topics, each of which was covered in multiple sessions, included: preparing the preacher, sermon outlining, illustration, and supporting disciplines.  In addition, we spent time with Dr. John Maxwell via video, drawing from his series, Everyone Communicates, Few Connect.   The students were eager to learn and I found teaching them to be a great joy.
