As a direct result of letters received from pastors who were listening to the Sound Words Bible teaching programme, a burden grew to do something to help those in local churches with leadership responsibilities. The first programme was aired in September 2002.
The Programme’s Aim
The main aim of the programme is to help pastors and church leaders to think biblically and to preach the message of the Bible with greater clarity. In addition to studies that lead directly to sermons, Serving Today has also dealt with a number of doctrinal subjects as well as issues of a pastoral and leadership nature.
A Typical Programme
Usually each series of programmes looks at two different topics, for example a survey of a book of the Bible and a preaching related subject. Sometimes a whole programme is devoted to one subject; such as the major series on HIV/AIDS and how the local church should respond to this pandemic.
The contributors to Serving Today have all been in the Lord’s service and are therefore well qualified to understand and speak on issues facing pastors and church leaders today.
Response From Listeners
