About the Event

Register your church today for Gateway's annual Bible teaching conference. This one-day conference provides encouragement and training for anyone who teaches a Bible study or small group as well as special training for those who teach specific age groups. Teachers of every skill level will find challenging sessions designed to take them to the next level.

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Octavio Esqueda, professor of Christian higher education and director of the Ph.D. and Ed.D. programs at Talbot School of Theology at Biola University. He was born and raised in Guadalajara, México. Esqueda graduated with honors with a Licenciatura in Latin American literature from the University of Guadalajara and two additional diplomas, one in religion and society and the second in journalism. He graduated with honors from Dallas Theological Seminary and completed his Ph.D. in higher education at the University of North Texas.

Esqueda has several publications on theological education and Christian higher education, practical theology, and literature. Teaching is his passion, and he has had the opportunity to teach in several countries on different academic levels. He is an avid soccer fan.

Attendees will also have access to the library of previously recorded sessions from past conferences!
