Recent Accordance Training in the Philippines

Training in Philippines

Last week I had the pleasure of leading an Accordance Training Seminar at the Biblical Seminary of the Philippines. Over half of the students are Chinese, and most of these are from mainland China. My seminar was translated into Mandarin, as many of the students did not understand much English. They were incredibly encouraged to see the Chinese localized version of Accordance, including our Atlas and Timeline translated into Chinese and our Strong’s tagged Chinese Union Version. It was exciting to see their hunger for studying Scripture!

The president of BSOP is Dr. Joseph Shao, who happens to be an avid Accordance user. He told me how many of his students would be returning to China after graduation to teach and preach God’s Word. He was very thankful that they can take Accordance with them, providing them with key tools and resources for their ministries. It’s a great privilege to see Accordance spreading enthusiasm for the Scriptures all around the world!

 


The Biblical Seminary of the Philippines has posted a webpage with more photos of the recent Accordance Training, which can be viewed here. To see if there is an upcoming Accordance event in your area, please see our Seminars & Shows page.

Studying the Bible in a New Way

Note: this blog post by Wesley Allen originally appeared January 30, 2017, on the American Baptist Churches of New Jersey website and is reproduced here with permission. Photos were also taken by Wesley Allen.


On January 28 the ABCNJ Academy sponsored a training seminar for Accordance Bible Software at New Brunswick Theological Seminary.  Roughly fifty people attended the event, about half of whom were ABCNJ pastors and leaders. While Accordance provides the training for free, ABCNJ registrants received the Accordance starter bundle and Academy credit with their paid registration. It was an incredible deal, and impressed Pastor Gregory McMillan of Hamilton Square Baptist Church, "Because of the exceptional insight of [Accordance's Rick Mansfield], I now feel better equipped to educate the church and its people. We are fortunate to have access to such a resource of information at a reasonable cost." Associate Regional Pastor, Rev. Dr. Elmo Familiaran, was equally as impressed, "The interface between Greek, Hebrew, lexicons and Atlas with my preferred English translation is just truly amazing. Reading and studying the Bible will never be the same for me."

The training moved through Accordance's interface, walked though setting up highlights, demonstrated the speed and power of its search capabilities, and explored user created content like user tools and user verse notes. Two features which were just released in the most recent update, Stacks and Papers, were also demonstrated. These function as a digital stack of notecards and a structured text editor for sermons or lesson plans, respectively.

ABCNJ 2

While the training was rapid Rev. Martha Bevacqua, Interim Pastor at First Baptist Lambertville, believed it was helpful for getting started with the new tool, "Any resource that helps me be a better preacher is always helpful, but learning how to use new software can be time consuming as well as challenging. The training gave me sufficient knowledge and confidence to get started using Accordance."

ABCNJ 3

The session was an expression of ABCNJ's continued committment to helping pastors use the incredible tools at their disposal, and fitting them into their workflow. Rev. Dr. Lee B. Spitzer, Executive Minister and Senior Regional Pastor of ABCNJ, was pleased with what was accomplished, "ABCNJ was proud to sponsor the Accordance training event at New Brunswick Theological Seminary. We live and serve in a computer-based era, and it is vital for our clergy to utilize the best and most cutting-edge tools to grow in ministry effectiveness and faithfulness. I have been using Accordance since 2008, but I must admit I learned a great deal from the seminar and will use this software to greater effect going forward."
