  • "The ministry of the Charles Simeon Trust not only helps beginning preachers

    to handle the Word of God faithfully and tellingly, but provides invaluable resources for more experienced preachers, too. Most preachers would benefit hugely from the Workshops organized by the Trust."

    image D.A. Carson (Research Professor of New Testament at TEDS)
  • "I love the work of the Charles Simeon Trust. Nothing is more vital...

    ...than people hearing God’s Word rightly preached. So nothing is more vital for preachers than learning to rightly divide the Word. I praise God for raising up the Charles Simeon Trust to equip a generation in the most noble art and science of preaching and teaching."

    image Thabiti Anyabwile (Pastor of Anacostia River Church in Washington D.C.)
  • "The Charles Simeon Trust women's workshops provide a rare opportunity

    for women—stellar training on skills for getting to a right understanding of the text and teaching it to others. But the best and most unique thing about a Charles Simeon Trust women's workshop is the opportunity to get critical feedback from other women whose only agenda is to help each other get better at handling the Bible.”

    image Nancy Guthrie (Bible teacher, author, conference speaker)
  • "The Charles Simeon Trust, modelled on The Proclamation Trust in the UK,

    has been doing excellent work equipping Christians in understanding and teaching the Bible. I happily commend and promote their workshops, and regularly have occasion to encourage people to attend them."

    image Mark Dever (Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C.)
  • "Recomiendo firmemente la capacitación de The Charles Simeon Trust,

    ellos nos ayudan a entender claramente la Biblia y nos capacitan bien para predicar y ayudar al oyente a aplicarla."

    image Félix Cabrera (Pastor Iglesia Bautista Central in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma)
  • "One of the church’s greatest needs

    is gospel ministers who are well-trained in expositional word ministry so that they may, in turn, faithfully equip the church for this mutual edification. It is for this reason that I partner with the Charles Simeon Trust (CST). I am so encouraged by the work of CST that we not only host an annual workshop in Austin, I also participate in other workshops as time permits. I cannot recommend CST highly enough.”

    image Juan Sanchez (Pastor of High Pointe Baptist Church in Austin)
  • "The Workshops on Biblical Exposition are a brilliant opportunity to listen to one another.

    They are a great way to learn from people who are further ahead than you, to have your own thinking challenged and it’s a great way to have fellowship around the central and pivotal responsibility that God’s given us: to preach and teach His Word."

    image David Short (Rector of St. John's Anglican Church in Vancouver)
  • "The greatest need of the church is the faithful exposition of God's Word.

    The Charles Simeon Trust is engaged in the vital work of encouraging and training biblical expositors. By harnessing the vast ministry potential of the internet, the Simeon Course offers excellent training to those who might not otherwise have access to this type of instruction."

    image Phil Ryken (President of Wheaton College)
