Some Background

The church worldwide is experiencing a fresh awakening. Something new and encouraging is also emerging on the Bible teaching front. The Way of the Spirit is part of that. It is wonderfully blessing those who use it, but more than that it is proving an excellent tool for training people to become lively Bible teachers and preachers – to lay hold of the living, life-transforming dynamic of Scripture, to apply it to themselves, and then go and introduce others to it, much as Wycliffe’s men did in their day.

We call this Prophetic Bible teaching, because it means staying prayerfully open to whatever God would reveal to us through his Spirit, as we read the Word.

Not just for scholars

Jesus never required his disciples to get degrees. But he did teach them from the Scriptures, and their love of the Scriptures taught them to become excellent teachers themselves, compelled to share their love for the Word of God. At The Way of the Spirit we teach our students to look deeply into the Bible, where they can find its living flow. And we see, time after time, how discovering that running river of life brings them to want to share it with those around them.

Two types of course

At The Way of the Spirit we offer two types of teaching and training: a Bible Reading course, and the Prophetic Bible Teaching course.

The Bible Reading Course is where most of our students start. It is a non-academic, two year-programme to teach Christians to read the Bible in a deeper and more meaningful way. With guidance, support, and training materials, students read the Bible in four six-month sections to learn how to bring the Bible to life as a complete message, given from God’s Holy Spirit, speaking to their own personal lives. The  course was originally written and developed by Bible scholar John McKay as the Bible element of the curriculum at what was then the Kingdom Faith Revival College.

For those who want to go deeper, the Prophetic Bible teaching programme is often a first step in training believers to become ministers and trainers themselves. This programme offers five further levels of Bible teaching, from short two- to seven- week introductory studies through to a one or two-year course of full time training for Bible teachers for the mission field.

We also offer an ADVANCED DIPLOMA to teachers who already hold the first level and who have demonstrated willingness to put it into practise. This is an essential level of training for any who are called to mission, home or abroad, short medium or long term. Apply

For those who are simply curious to bring their Bible reading to life and to hear from God through his word, we offer a number of other resources in our online shop, and throughout this website.
