Partner Resource Guide
Dear Expository Preacher,
This catalog is designed to be a companion resource for
the expository preaching cohorts you will have an
opportunity to join after the training institute concludes.
Each page is a description of our preaching partners’
ministries along with comprehensive information about
training materials they offer.
The red links become interactive through the online
version of the catalog which you can access through our
website These links will take you to
specific websites and tools within those sites.
Some material will appeal more to preachers just starting
out while other resources are geared toward more
seasoned preachers. Your cohort leader is equipped to
help determine what would be most helpful for you at
your present level.
We sincerely hope you will benefit from the preaching
partners we’ve presented through the NEEPI. We’ll be
adding additional resources as they become available, so
please visit the website from time to time and select
J. Kent Edwards, Ph.D.,
D.Min., is the Founder and
CEO of CrossTalk Global.
The goal of CrossTalk
Global is to “equip
biblical communicators,
so that every culture can
hear God’s voice.” We are
not a seminary and do
not offer academic
degrees. We provide
cultures across the globe
with competent
practitioners who are
equipped to provide the
biblical communication
so desperately needed.
Kent’s purpose in life is to
change people’s lives with
the Word of God and help
others do the same. He has
spent his life pastoring God’s
people, preaching God’s
word, and helping pastors
around the world serve their
Savior more effectively.
He has authored two awardwinning books, Deep

and Effective First-Person

Simeon Course
The Simeon Course on Biblical
Exposition is a flexible online
training platform for people who
want to get better at studying
and teaching God’s Word. We
have three different courses that
tackle different aspects of
preaching and teaching from the
Our first goal is to assist
preachers and teachers of God's
Word. For this reason, we
thoroughly and thoughtfully
review each item we produce or
choose to share here in order to
determine whether it meets our
criteria for "helpful to the
working pastor." The result of
this process is our Resources
section, organized into audio
resources, video resources,
and written resources.
Using a unique combination of
world-class professors and
accomplished practitioners,
these courses help students
become familiar with how to
preach and teach from each
genre of the Bible (Literary
Genre course), how texts
function in the context of the
whole Bible (Biblical
Theology course), and how our
doctrinal convictions should
have an impact on our
preparation (Systematic
Theology course).
Each work was produced by our
partner pastors and
organizations and reflects what
we think are the best resources
in the world. Our partner
organizations include Matthias
Media, the Proclamation
Trust, 9Marks, and the Gospel
Haddon Robinson
Center for Preaching
The Preacher
Haddon W. Robinson is
the Harold John
Ockenga Distinguished
Professor of Preaching, senior
director of the Doctor of
Ministry program, and former
interim President at GordonConwell Theological Seminary.
One of his major contributions
to homiletics is the "Big Idea of
Biblical Preaching" (the title of
a book which is in his honor),
whereby sermons should have
one major idea (has one
subject and one complement),
even if the big idea breaks
down into several subpoints.
Robinson also argues that a
sermon should be primarily
expository, since that places
the authority in the biblical
text, not in the preachers

for Expository Preaching
The New England Center for
Expository Preaching (NECEP)
exists to glorify God and
proclaim the Gospel of Jesus
Christ by giving a select number
of seminary students, who seek
to become expository preachers,

Word of God weekly to “real
congregations” on Sunday
NECEP’s resources include
podcasts from its annual
preaching conferences,
excellent audio and visual
recordings of the definition
and importance of expository
preaching, and an archive of
sermons from its many events.
From the website you can
access sermons and addresses
from some of the best
expository preachers alive
today in the US and overseas.
Each semester, NECEP desires to
simultaneously allow selected
interns to test their expository
preaching skills, as they expose
the churches in New England to
expository preaching. Further,
NECEP desires to assist the
(often bi-vocational) pastors of
New England, by providing a
annual conference by which the
pastors are fed the Word of God.
NECEP’s intern program is an
excellent way for seminary
students to gain valuable
