November 15th - November 19th21st Century Preaching course

Effective preaching emerges at the intersection of solid biblical exegesis and keen insight into the “here and now” of contemporary context. This course will examine methods for doing exegesis for preaching that are realistic in the busyness of ministry and keep our own hearing of God’s words fresh and living. We will explore what it looks like to communicate effectively with diverse and often distracted twenty-century audiences and consider creative techniques for crafting sermons that engage modern people deeply in the ongoing story of God. The course includes opportunities to receive feedback on sermon structure and delivery.
