QTC Women’s Teaching Day ‘The Sermon on the Mount: Kingdom Living to the Full’

Together we will be working through a process for observing and interpreting the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) as a whole we can use as we read God’s Word with others. As we dig into God’s Word together Robyn will help us to develop a process for applying the passage in different ministry contexts for women. In particular, her focus will be on helping women grow in everyday obedience, being in every way dependent on Christ, and encouraging others to grow with them.

This event is for QTC Women only. QTC Women includes current female QTC students, staff, students wives, staff wives, female alumni, alumni wives, and female volunteers.


or $15 for current QTC students
Morning Tea and Lunch are included

stepping back to observe and understand and the section of text
applying the depth of the text to the scenario – actions, character and desires
