Who will teach during the large group teaching sessions? Johnny and Beth Evans will share the teaching responsibilities on alternate Mondays.
What is your position on a woman teaching the Bible to a man? We understand Paul’s admonition for a woman not to be permitted “to teach or have authority over a man” found in 1 Timothy 2:12 to mean that a woman is not to exercise Biblical authority over a man in the context of the Church. Monday Night Bible Study is not a Church and is not intended to take the place of the Church. It’s a para-church ministry that comes alongside the church to encourage, assist, serve and aid. There are over 150 different Churches represented by participants of Monday Night Bible Study.
Is Monday Night Bible Study a ministry of Providence Baptist Church? No. We thank God for Providence allowing us to use the facilities at 6339 Glenwood Ave., but Monday Night Bible Study is a ministry of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Triangle Adult Chapter. FCA is a separate 501 (c) 3 non-profit entity. To learn more about FCA visit www.trianglefca.org.
