OCU Ministerial Institute presents: "Get the Story Straight"

May 24, 2013 - 8:30am - 12:30pm


Essential Principles and Practices of Bible Study for Preachers and Teachers

with Gerald Mershimer & Christine Zimmerman


  • Do you want to grow in your ability to reflect God's Word in your preaching?

  • Do you want to connect with other pastors who want to do the same?

  • Do you want to learn principles and practices that will help you effectively deliver God's Word to your parishioners?


If you answered Yes to any of these questions, you will want to attend the next CEU event hosted by Ohio Christian University's Ministerial Institute!

The Sunday morning sermon or the Sunday school lesson is a significant part of the role pastors and teachers play in "equipping the saints." However, the sermons and lessons do not just materialize; much study and preparation go into the final product. In order to provide parishioners with sound biblical teaching, pastors and teachers must have a solid Bible study method themselves. The purpose of this workshop is to provide pastors and teachers with principles, practices, and access to resources for their personal Bible study and lesson preparation. This workshop is part one of a three-part series on Bible Study Methods.

Meet Our Presenters

Gerald Mershimer

Gerald is Assistant Professor of Bible and Preaching at Ohio Christian University where he has enjoyed teaching and mentoring students for the past five years. Before coming to Ohio Christian University, he had been involved in pastoral ministry for over twelve years. Gerald continues to accept as many requests to preach as his schedule will allow.

Gerald has been married to his wife Nikki for over sixteen years. They live in Lancaster, Ohio in a home that is bustling with their children Caleb, Celeste, Chasidy and Christopher, along with their nephew, Allen.

One of Gerald's passions is to give himself to join God at work in raising up a new generation of preachers who love the gospel, live the gospel and preach the gospel so that broken people may experience the life-giving power and peace of God.
