Preaching and teaching are a vital part of local church ministry in both long-established and fresh expressions of church. Through our annual Preaching Day, Wycliffe College seeks to serve and equip church leaders by offering encouragement, training, and resources for preaching the good news in their context.
Our next Preaching Day will be at Wycliffe College on Monday February 27th, 2017, featuring Fleming Rutledge on Preaching the Cross in Our Rapidly Changing World. We will also have workshops given by other speakers.
About Fleming Rutledge
Fleming Rutledge, having spent twenty-two years in parish ministry, now has an international preaching and teaching vocation. Her most recent book, The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ (Eerdmans, 2015), has received praise from scholars and preachers, as well as Christianity Today's 2017 Book of the Year. The Church Times said ‘The book is at once profound and preachable. A preacher will find material, and illustrations, for many sermons. Any Christian would find it uplifting, and academic theologians will see just how theology can best be put at the service of the wider Church.’ Her previous books have met with wide acclaim across denominational lines and national borders. She is also author of God Spoke to Abraham: Preaching from the Old Testament, and The Battle for Middle-earth: Tolkien's Divine Design in The Lord of the Rings, which has a fan base in Europe as well as the US.
