This summer, church leaders and teachers will convene at ACU during the week of July 25-28 for three summer workshops: the 45th annual Bible Teachers Workshop, the 19th annual Elders and Church Leaders Workshop and the 9th annual Equipping Women for Ministry Workshop.

The summer workshops are designed to equip Christians for greater service in their local churches, said Dr. Carl Brecheen, director of the summer workshops and professor of Bible.

Speakers from various churches around the U.S. will speak at classes, while morning and evening devotionals round out the day.

Classes for the workshops will cover topics such as telling stories to children, integrating the classroom and devotional subjects for teens, serving through acts of kindness, youth ministry in the 21st century, how divorce affects children, using computers to organize church libraries, the calling of angels and AIDS ministries.

A feature for women in the Equipping Women for Ministry Workshop will be the special "Honoring Sisters of Service" luncheon on Tuesday, July 27 to honor several women who have spent years in godly service and exemplary discipleship.

This year approximately 2,000 participants are expected at the workshops.

Programs are offered for youth who are interested in teaching and child care is provided for children 2 to 9 years at $4 per session. The workshop registration fee is $15 per person.
