Event description

Description

Are you called to preach the Word of God but have not had a chance to learn how?

In the spirit of C.H. Spurgeon's effective school for training preachers, the Center for Preaching is pleased to provide Preachers' College.

Preachers' College is designed to give training in basic homiletic principles in an intensive two and half day seminar to lay members who occasionally preach in their churches. The purpose is to provide men and women who have been called to preach with the essential tools needed to compose and present biblical, relevant, and effective sermons.

About the College

The conference will teach the basics of sermon preparation and delivery. If you are a lay member, and preach somewhat regularly, and think you might benefit from knowing well the fundamentals of preaching, this conference may be for you. We want to equip men and women who are serving as pastors and lay preachers with the ability to preach biblical, clear, relevant, and effective sermons.

Sample of topics to be covered include:

  • Choosing a Passage
  • Finding the Central Truth
  • Writing an Outline
  • Using Illustrations
  • Understand what Expository preaching is and is not


Lead by Gordon-Conwell Preaching Faculty:

MATTHEW D. KIM, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Preaching and Ministry


Dr. Kim brings over 10 years of preaching and teaching experience to his role at Gordon-Conwell. Most recently, he served as senior pastor of Logos Central Chapel in Denver, CO. Dr. Kim is the author of Preaching with Cultural Intelligence, 7 Lessons for New Pastors, and coeditor of Homiletics and Hermeneutics.

JEFF ARTHURS, Ph.D
Professor of Preaching and Communication

Dr. Arthurs has been a pastor, missionary, actor, director, announcer and consultant. He has taught on all levels from grade school to graduate school. His book, Preaching with Variety (Kregel Academic, 2007), taps into his special love - preaching in genre-sensitive, creative ways.
