ESP Bible School

One of the founding principles of the ESP Worship Centre is to equip the saints for service. In 2013 the ESP Bible School was launched to enhance the provision of biblical education at ESP and open up the classroom to interested students from around the globe.  At ESP we are passionate about the Word and teaching God's Word to His people.  We seek to engage, equip and empower the body of Christ for effective service in God's Kingdom.

  • "We are so privileged to have our Pastor who has been in Ministry for almost 50 years as our bible school teacher. We benefit from his wealth of experience and are able to have a personal relationship and mentoring by him. No one remembers everything they were taught in any class, but they remember the impact the Teacher had on them.

    Bible school training allows you to learn “doctrine and manner of life”.

  • "I really enjoyed bible school! Since I took the first course I've never stopped because my desire is to know and grow more in the Word of God. Through these courses, I've gained a clearer understanding of, and a deeper appreciation for the Word, but most of all, I learn how to apply it to my daily life. We are blessed to have such a great pastor and teacher who is very knowledgeable of the Word. He teaches with such clarity and of course there is always some humour to keep the classes interesting and exciting."
