A Passion to Teach...
Teaching believers the Old and New Testament is like
taking a tour through the splendor of a range of mountains and valleys. From
every view it is magnificent. The heights of the mountains are breath-taking.
The valleys are formed and full of wild flowers. Every sight and sound is
I have had the privilege of taking believers on this
journey many times and still feel the excitement of taking the excursion once
again. Seeing the faces of people as God's Word provides encouragement in their
lives, hearing their groans as it impacts a well-entrenched belief, listening
to the thought-provoking questions that arise when challenged by it, is one of
the great experiences of life.
God wants to change the lives of his people through
his Word. My passion is to help you and your people have a lasting encounter
with the Word of God.
Your people will have the thrill of seeing how
Scripture applies to their day-to-day life. They will be more attentive to your
weekly sermons and Bible studies. I have listed who benefits and how below.
About the Instructor
Winn Griffin has been a Bible teacher, pastor,
and writer for over thirty-five years. He has taught in the church and in the
college system during that time. He is the founder and president of Seeing the
Bible Live Ministries, ...more
The seminars are like taking a
refresher course in the Old and New Testament. Church Staffs often get bogged
down in the daily routine of ministering and need an occasional shot in the
arm. This is a wonderful gift for them.
Students in College or Seminary
seminars put the parts of Scripture together in one complete picture. College
and Seminary students often leave their studies with fragments of the story of
the Bible without knowing how the story fits together. Here's an opportunity to
help them put the puzzle together while applying the message to their life.
Your Christian Education Teachers
Christian Education Department is a vital part of the church which provides
information and formation to your congregation--from kids to adults. These
seminars offer the CE teachers a great blessing by providing new ideas and
inspiration for them. Their teaching will never be the same.
Like most churches your
congregation is divided between those who volunteer to work in some ministry
area in the church, like choir, ushering, teachers, etc., and those whose
ministry is in the secular marketplace. Your congregation often needs
additional help and information to provide for their friends and neighbors when
Bible subjects arise. These seminars will provide them with answers to
often-asked questions, both inside and outside of the church building.
Reading Scripture can become
tedious. We often read in fragments. These seminars teach believers how to
better read, understand, and apply both testaments to their lives.
How Much Does It Cost?
Sound great so far? It is and here is the best part!
You can know all the cost up-front, which will help you budget the event.
Remember, the event is sponsored by your church. The benefits of the seminar
are immeasurable! We can talk via phone or email about the cost to your
Your church will be responsible for transportation
cost, lodging, and per diem (food and misc.) for the instructor.
Who Pays the Instructor?
At the risk of
sounding overly spiritual. God does. And he does it through an offering taken
at the conclusion of the seminar.
If your people attend any one-day training courses
associated with their work in the secular marketplace, they could pay from
$129.00 to $300.00 per person, per day.
In the church area these numbers are often somewhat
smaller, but still range from $79.00 to $195.00 per day, per person.
Walk Thru the Bible, an excellent seminar, has a
minimum cost of $2,500.00 guarantee plus expense and a minimum of 150 people in
Why Is SBL Seminars So
Our overhead is not high. We believe that God supplies
the needs, as we are faithful to do his ministry. However, the quality of the
seminars is top drawer. The basic purpose of our two seminars is to teach
people how the Old and New Testaments fit together to present the history of
God's salvation for mankind. It is HIStory! These seminars provide your people
with reading insights that will help them understand Scripture better as they
continue to read. The seminars provide hope that God can and will meet their
personal and community needs.
What Others Are Saying!
Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge on the
Old Testament. My eyes and heart have been opened in a new way to the meaning
of God's truths.
Coming from a Mormon background, this has been a
wonderful eye opener. Thank you very much.
I always dreaded reading the Old Testament because I
always fell asleep with the book in my lap. Now I want to read it! You have
opened my eyes to the Old Testament; that makes me feel excited to read and
This seminar taught me that relationship is the key to
true meaningful worship, not vice versa.
I've taken many Old Testament classes, but this has
been the most effective for my life. Winn's experience in the Pastorate and his
knowledge of the Scripture reach into my life in a powerful and effective way
to help me think theologically and experience God in a special way.
Dale Temple, Pastor
Being new to the study and understanding of the word
of God, Dr. Griffin has provided the much needed framework to make reading and
learning exciting, understandable, and fun. This has been a truly enjoyable and
captivating course. The fastest ten hours of learning I've experienced!
I can't tell you how impressed I was with your
knowledge of the Bible. The enemy almost kept me from coming here to hear you,
but I thank God that he didn't win. I just love your openness, your
personality, and your honesty. It was truly an honor to be blessed by God
through you. Thank you so much for being obedient.
Thanks, Winn, for causing the humanness of God's word
to minister to me. It's so easy to look at the Old Testament as a story or
fairy tale instead of real people serving a loving God. God bless you in your
ministry as the Lord teaches his children.
Nothing I have ever heard about the Old Testament
compares to this study. I have learned that repentance and renewal is key to
life in the Lord. We must learn to see both the Old and New Testaments in
correct terms and understanding, which this course has prepared me to do.
Thank you so much for the Old Testament Overview you
presented to Christian Life Fellowship. We have all been blessed through your
teaching ministry. Every person present has, no doubt, been encouraged,
enlightened, and hopefully has more passion for reading and understanding the
word of God.
Sam Thompson, Pastor
I have thoroughly enjoyed spending the last three
evenings with you. My eyes have opened and I see many things now much more
clearly than previously. You are truly blessed and I am blessed for having
