Biblical Oral Interpretation

Tuesday, June 25, 6:30-9:00 PM
Tuesday, July 9, 6:30-9:00 PM

The Bible provides the foundations of Christian faith and a primary focus of our worship. Our pastors and music leaders spend hours in preparation for Sunday morning, but do those who read Scripture know how to prepare to do so?

afO’s Artistic Director Lauren Nichols is passionate about reading the Bible aloud with excellence. Book this two-hour practicum to improve your skills, so that you can better serve your own congregation as a Bible reader.

Limit 6 participants, $25/person
