EXPLORE aims to deepen Christians’ knowledge of God and his plan for the world, enabling them to serve him better with a deeper understanding of the Bible and theology; and to teach and share the gospel in either their local church or workplace.
We, at St Matthews, run a module each quarter except for the last quater of the year. We facilitate the course by offering weekly focus sessions.
The EXPLORE Correspondence Course is an affordable self-study programme. The material is currently being translated into a number of African languages.
EXPLORE Course Content
Each of the 8 EXPLORE modules is designed to actively engage students in a personal study of God’s Word, through investigative exercises and focused Bible readings. All EXPLORE modules are currently available in English.
Successful completion of the examinations of all 8 modules will result in the awarding of the EXPLORE Certificate at the annual GWC (George Whitefield College) graduation ceremony.
Students who complete the EXPLORE correspondence course can apply to be a duly qualified lay-gospel worker in the Reformed Evangelical Anglican Church of South African (REACH-SA).
Students are equipped to effectively teach in a Bible study or one-to-one setting, where they will know and be able to teach the relevance and meaning of Bible passages so as to grow Bible literacy in the local church.
Academic Entrance Requirements
EXPLORE is not registered under SAQA and there are no academic entrance requirements. The examinations are not compulsory, although we recommend them as an aid for serious study.
