You are invited and strongly encouraged to join us for one of the 2-day workshops, “Teaching the Bible for Today”. Taught by Matt Hannan, whom you heard at Ignite, TBFT is designed primarily with those who preach and teach on a regular basis in mind. This training will sharpen your skills to powerfully communicate God’s Word in a way that changes lives.

Matt is a sought-after presenter and teacher of homiletics, church growth, and church planting in several seminary doctoral programs. He has served for over 25 years as the lead pastor of New Heights Church in Vancouver, Washington. Under his leadership, New Heights grew from a church of a few hundred to a multi-site church of thousands with twelve services in four different locations. Additionally, New Heights developed and hosted Northwest Church Planting, an organization that helped start over 100 churches and continues to provide assessment, training, coaching and consulting for leaders and networks committed to starting new churches. Always biblical, often unconventional, his refreshing and honest style will challenge and inspire you.
