Abstract

The Bible Training Work programs, though focused on raising up ministers, elders, and deacons, were among the first in the Churches of Christ to make in-depth Bible training available to women. Their versatility in offering both vocational and non-vocational training and willingness to accept anyone regardless of sex, race, or creed was shaped by the openness of the first Kerrville, Texas, program and the theological views of the Non-Bible-Class Churches from which it originated.
