That is what would describe the recent 2 day Timothy Leadership Training that took place at the Nehemiah Center on January 24th and 25th. The topic of this module was “Biblical Preaching”. How amazing it was for several pastors and leaders from León, Chinandega, and Managua to learn more effective methods for preaching and teaching.
The two days were spent in the pages of Scripture, seeking to know more of God’s Word and how we are to utilize it so that we can be more effective in the ministry that He has called us

to. The training included such topics as “How to correctly choose and use a text for Biblical preaching”, “How to point people towards Jesus and the message of salvation with the text that you are using”, and “How to preach with the intention of seeing results in the people who hear”.
The training not only included teaching from different facilitators, led by Henry Cruz, but also involved much discussion among the participants, as well as a time to implement what was being taught. Pastors worked together in choosing a text from the Bible to create a “vertical sermon” (one that points directly to the message of the Gospel) and presented this to their peers. They also put together a plan of action for the next 4 months so that they can implement what they have learned. Many of them have plans to share this training with their core leadership so that it can be reproduced in their own congregations. At the end we all gathered up front to pray for the plans and commit them to the Lord. It was a very special time.
These pastors were taught, encouraged, challenged, and renewed during our time together. They are hungry to know more so that they can be more effective in reaching their people with the saving message of Jesus Christ. I was blessed to spend time together with them, getting to know them, and hearing their heart for the Lord. I am thankful to be part of a ministry like the Nehemiah Center that seeks to train, equip, and encourage pastors and leaders so that they can be most effective in bringing the truth of the Gospel to their people for the glory of God.
“All Scripture is breathed out by God
and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction,
and for training in righteousness,
that the man of God may be competent,
equipped for every good work.”
