CrossTalk strengthens Christ’s church around the world by equipping its leaders to effectively communicate the Bible to their home cultures.
CrossTalk currently operates in nine countries across four continents.
Preaching is easy! Or is it?
Do you feel the weight of having to “rightly divide the word of truth”?
And then deliver that truth with the transforming power of the Holy Spirit?
To people who came to church with very different backgrounds and concerns?
And doing so every week?
If you long to preach God’s Word more accurately and effectively, CrossTalk Global can help. CrossTalk Global provides the skill-based, results-oriented, continuing education that you’ve been looking for.
We believe the best learning occurs within relationships, so we limit the size of our classes. Here you can develop strong relationships with people who share your passion and will enrich your ministry.
Our instructors are recognized experts who will walk with you throughout the program. And will share their lives as well as their expertise along the way.
We believe that learning is doing and we won’t ask you to write papers and book reports. Your assignments will be integrated into and designed to assist your ministry.
We believe that truly effective preachers first apply God’s word to themselves. We shape lives with Scripture while shaping Scripture into sermons.
Our international expertise ensures that the way you preach will resonate with your culture.
CrossTalk’s unique program won’t interrupt your ministry. The program consists of six, one-week instructional sessions held every six months. You will also receive expert coaching on one sermon a month.
CrossTalk Global’s intensive, high-quality, results-oriented program has enabled pastors and Christian leaders around the world to maximize their ministries with the power of God’s Word. This program will not be easy, but we guarantee that it will be worthwhile!
