Upcoming Preaching Course
DMIN 8493 X5 / PAST 7213 X5 - "Preaching Master Class"
Rev. Dr. Andrew Stirling
May 29-June 2, 2017
How can we become more effective and confident preachers of the Word? This practical 'Master Class' course will offer an intensive and interactive way to develop our preaching skills. Students will learn through preaching before their peers and listening to sermons presented in class. Among other things we will look at the importance of oratory, sermon structure, spiritual passion, biblical interpretation and social relevance. Participants will also become familiar with current homiletical research and theory. Students are eligible for this advanced course who have significant experience in preaching and who have at least an introductory course in preaching.
