Three Resolutions for Biblical Expositors

Greg Strand – January 9, 2013 Leave a comment

David Helm serves as lead pastor of Holy Trinity Church, Chicago, IL, director of their training center, and chairman of The Charles Simeon Trust. With the beginning of this new year, as an expositor of God’s Word he committed himself, by God’s grace, to three resolutions and resolves regarding his expositional preaching, to which he also challenged fellow expositors:

Resolved: To remain convinced that biblical exposition must be done.

Resolved: To find collegial relationships that will encourage me in the hard work of biblical exposition.

Resolved: To invest my time in ways that show me how to go about getting biblical exposition done.

Two application questions:

  1. Can you join Helm in praying for and working towards these resolutions?
  2. What are your commitments to be a better, more faithful expositor of God’s Word this year?

Greg Strand


Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
