Expository Preaching in Mexico City

Students

The Expository Preaching Class at Word of Grace Biblical Seminary is moving right along. The men enrolled are eager learners—their average age being forty-one! It is humbling to teach these men, some of whom have been in ministry for years. Yet they are ever striving to excel more and more as they are challenged in 2 Timothy 2:15: “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the Word of truth.” (ESV)

Reformation Conference

Reformation ConferenceWe recently traveled to Tula de Allende, a town about one hour north of Mexico City. Two of our students from last year attend a Pentecostal church in this town. WGBS faculty member Jim Dowdy spoke at their Reformation Conference last year, and was invited to return as guest speaker again this year.

Please pray for these very gifted young men as they seek the Lord’s guidance in regards to their ongoing and future ministry. While there is mutual respect and genuine love for their pastor (who is also the father of one of the young men), they have a deep longing to see the Word of God faithfully taught, that this body of believers might experience reformation in the truest sense of the word.

Sanctification Conference

Sanctification ConferenceThis past weekend Beraca Church in Mexico City invited Jim to teach at a conference on Sanctification. Several former seminary students serve as pastors of this church. The conference was well attended and many sought Jim out after the meetings to talk further about God’s ongoing work in their lives.

It is truly thrilling to see what God is doing in and through the students and graduates of Word of Grace Biblical Seminary. As these men become more grounded in the Word themselves they are able to more accurately teach the Word to others. God uses His Word to transform lives!

Thank you for your partnership in this Mexico City ministry!
