The Eunice Initiative

Home » The Eunice Initiative

Phoenix Seminary, local church pastors, and local female leaders are joining together to train women to teach. The Eunice Initiative serves the local church by providing theological instruction and practical training to women who teach the Bible.

Whether they will teach in their churches, homes, or communities, we seek to train women to communicate God’s Word accurately, in accordance with sound doctrine, with an eye towards exalting Christ, all under the authority of their particular church’s leadership.

Originally developed in Florida, Phoenix Seminary and The Gospel Coalition Arizona have partnered to adopt The Eunice Initiative and offer it to local churches in the Phoenix area. The second semester will use curriculum from The Charles Simeon Trust.



This training is for any woman who aspires to teach or currently teaches the Scriptures. The cost for both semesters is $100. If finances may prohibit you from attending this training, please contact us.


Training will take place over two semesters focusing on Foundational Principles of Teaching the Scriptures in the first semester and Practicals of Teaching the Scriptures in the second.


We will meet the third Tuesday of every month in the Fall and Spring, from 7:00–9:00pm at Phoenix Seminary, 7901 E Shea Blvd, Scottsdale, AZ 85260.
