The Centre for Expository Preaching (CEP) is a ministry of KVBC Trust and seeks to provide pastors, teachers and ministry leaders with a firm grounding in expository ministry through seminars, courses and workshops on biblical exposition.

Expository Preaching Seminar (EPS)

The Expository Preaching Seminar (EPS), organised in conjunction with the KVBC Bible Conferences, is a seminar to serve and strengthen Malaysian church leaders dedicated to faithfully preaching God’s Word. It also serves as a refresher for seasoned preacher-teachers on principles and issues pertaining to expository ministry. It is also an ideal introduction to expository preaching for budding preacher-teachers of God’s Word.

CEP Course

The CEP Course seeks to train and equip faithful expositors of God’s Word for local churches and gospel ministries.

Why another course on preaching?
Most churches recognise that effective faithful preaching and teaching of God’s Word occupies a central role in the local church. Yet many also readily acknowledge that, while leadership and ministry training programmes abound, intentional training and nurturing of preachers and teachers who can rightly and effectively handle the Word remains one of the most pressing needs in the local church.

The CEP Course addresses this gap by focusing specifically on expository preaching. Through a combination of classroom instruction, model expositions, and extensive hands-on exercises in small groups, the CEP Course will teach and model six core principles of expository preaching:1

  • Staying on the line of Scripture, never straying above or below.
  • Letting the Bible shape our frameworks rather than letting our frameworks shape our ‘interpretations’ of the Bible.
  • Teaching the emphasis of our text well by first apprehending the structure.
  • Understanding how the original audience understood a text in order to know how it applies today.
  • Understanding the whole book in order to better handle each specific text.
  • Showing the Gospel at every point in order to teach the Bible as Christians.
