She Can Teach

Dr. Jackie Roese developed and fine-tuned She Can Teach during her doctoral education under the tutelage of Dr. Haddon Robinson at Gordon-Conwell Seminary. Jackie has been teaching the course, formerly known as Basics 101, for years to women from different demographics and denominations. The course is designed to be intimate and hands-on. While working in-community with each other, women learn how to study, prepare and deliver a 20-minute message. Through She Can Teach, The Marcella Project is giving women the skills and confidence they need to effectively proclaim God’s Word.


  • You would like to teach but don’t know how to begin.

  • You teach the bible but have no training.

  • You have had some training but need further development.

  • You would like to fine-tune your skills.

  • You want to develop relationships with other women who teach.



course structure

FIRST WEEKEND (Friday evening & all day Saturday): The first part of the course is dedicated to teaching Bible study methods. Women will learn how to observe, interpret and apply a biblical passage. Then they will begin practicing to find the main idea of a passage (the author’s original intent to the original audience). Once the main idea is found we discover how to take the ancient text to our modern-day audience. 

IN BETWEEN: Over the next several weeks women work on preparing their message. Each woman has a date of completion for finding the main idea and an outline. She sends message to instructor via email for help & feedback. The full manuscript is sent to the instructor by a specified date. Again the instructor will review and work with the student until she is ready to deliver the message.

RETURNING WEEKEND (Saturday only): Women teach their 20-minute message in front of the class. The teachers and classmates will give constructive feedback on delivery.

Want your message Reviewed?

Jackie is an expert at crafting life forming biblical messages. When Jackie reviews a message she looks for your knowledge of the passage and of your audience. Did you explain or prove or handle the objections? Did you tell too much or hold back too much? Did you capture their attention? Did you challenge them to action? Were you clear and concise? Did the message flow? Did it inspire? Was Jesus invited into your process? How did the Holy Spirit work through you?

Hiring Jackie to review your message will enable you to teach effectively with confidence. Let’s journey together; becoming excellent teachers of God’s Word.
