Local Church Leadership


Churches need leaders. And while seminary remains a great option for many, more and more churches are seeking to raise up leaders from within through church-based theological training.

Whether yours is a large church with dozens of leaders-in-training or a small church with committed elders who want to grow in the grace and knowledge of God, BCS Press wants to provide resources and curricula to strengthen theologically-rich leadership development in your local congregation.

We know that most pastors don’t have time to develop curricula and course materials to help guide aspiring leaders into deeper biblical, theological, and practical maturity. That’s why BCS Press offers a variety of courses to aid your leadership development efforts. Here’s just a sampling.

Theological Foundations 1 and 2: Work through all of Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology with your elders. This curriculum focuses on key biblical passages for each doctrine, as well as thought-provoking comprehension and practical questions based on Grudem’s book and the Bethlehem Baptist Church Elder Affirmation of Faith.

Mining God’s Word: Help your pastoral staff learn the key principles of inductive Bible study (observation, interpretation, and application) through a careful study of the book of Philippians.

God’s Mission and Christian Missions: Give your leadership team a vision for the glory of Christ among all the nations, especially the unreached, in this six-week study of God’s global purposes.

TULIP: The Five Points of Calvinism: Guide your pastoral staff as they wrestle through the sovereignty of God in salvation through this six-week study of the Doctrines of Grace.

We also offer curriculum on Christian Hedonism, biblical theology, financial stewardship, racial harmony, baptism, biblical manhood and womanhood, and secular employment.
