About Preaching The Word
Preaching the Word is a ministry of Four Soils Ministry. Four Soils Ministry was founded February 2006 by Dr. Charles King under a burden to provide free Biblical and Theological Training for preaching, Bible teaching, Biblical counseling, and personal discipleship.
God gave Charlie a vision of this ministry building on his industry experience in the computer industry, his international mission work in Africa, Asia, Europe, Central America and the Caribbean. God used his computer education and experience to combine with his other personal education experience in Bible College, Seminary and his work experience as a extension director with New Orleans Seminary and as an Old Testament instructor with “Walk thru the Bible” to put together our educational material.
God is using all these to formulate a ministry to train anyone-anywhere in the world free of charge. This concept also means that all required resources must also be available over the Internet at no cost to the students. This has been accomplished with our Bible school and is currently being made available for our Bible college where we offer a unaccredited BS in Biblical Studies.
Four Soils Ministry has a four fold approach to Internet Christian education. As mentioned above our first focus was to provide training to ministers through certificate programs in Biblical Counseling, Preaching, Teaching and Discipleship (disciplining others) . We then added added an additional focus on expanding Bible knowledge our certificate students to the equivalent of a BS in Bible Studies. Now we are expanding the other way down to the individual Christian with a personal discipleship program called “Our Pilgrimage“. We also have this website which is focusing on proclamation of God’s Word to a lost world.
Four Soils Ministry also provides and supports websites that aid the connecting of Ministers to Ministries, and provide website hosting and support for churches and other ministries.
