The power of proverbs! Using Utter Wisdom in your teaching and learning – Recording of Online Training



This video is a recording on an online training session delivered on Zoom.

This online seminar looked at the way in which we can use proverbs from around the world to provide stimulating language learning, relationship building and gospel conversations. We used examples from 2.19’s publication ‘Utter Wisdom’ to do this, as well as seeing how we can apply the same principles behind the book to use other proverbs to help learners improve conversational English and also as a platform for exploring the deeper questions of life and introducing the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Speaker: Jonathan, with his wife Zoe and three children, worked in Cambodia with OMF for several years before returning to the UK in 2018. While there he was involved in rural church planting, English teaching and community outreach in a slum community in Phnom Penh.

Prior to this he worked in international student ministry for a large church in Sheffield and in student ministry with UCCF in Scotland. He studied English at university and completed a PhD in Christian doctrine at Aberdeen University in 2008.

As our Resource and Materials Developer at 2:19 Teach to Reach, Jonathan specialises in providing quality resources for churches to use in their outreach to speakers of other languages.
