Expository Preaching & Teaching Academy

Many pastors finish Bible school or seminary with very little experience in preaching.  When they get deeply involved in ministry and begin to feel the pressure of preparing sermons week after week, pastors often feel unprepared.  Most of these pastors are unable to go back to school full time, but many desire further training in preaching skills.

Without without requiring full-time commitment, Expository Preaching & Teaching Academy (EPTA) seeks to provide training for pastors and other church leaders that is specifically focused on preaching and teaching the Bible. Students have the option to pursue a Biblical Studies Certificate or a master’s degree (three levels). Our programs are recognized by The Master’s Academy International

Devotional Life

The most important element of a student’s life at the Expository Preaching & Teaching Academy is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.


The EPTA student should be a godly man, noted for holiness in all areas of his relationships (Psalm 1, 1 Tim. 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9).


Graduates of EPTA should have an excellent comprehension of the structure, order and major content of each book of the Bible.


Graduates of EPTA should be able to communicate a biblical philosophy of ministry that emphasizes and balances the exaltation of God, the edification of the saints, and evangelism of the lost.

Qualifications for Enrollment

EPTS focuses on training each student to be skilled in reading and studying the biblical texts to understand it accurately.
