Preaching The Year

Presenter / Facilitator - Clyde Glass - Lead Pastor of Southview Alliance

This workshop will equip participants to understand the historical patterns and significant ministry benefits of planning out a year of preaching, as well as guiding participants through the practical and spiritual discernment process of laying out each weekend for that year. We will consider how the Church year and Cultural Year can form and enhance how we preach and disciple, what some of the different models are for laying out the year, and how annual sermon planning can be used to lift other ministries within the church body.

The Life of David . . . Seeking wisdom for our own life and time

The Life of David . . . Seeking wisdom for our own life and time

Presenter / Facilitator - Mark Buchanan - Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology - Ambrose University

David was a man after God’s own heart. He was also utterly human and deeply flawed - wise, courageous, compassionate, but also prone to anger, lust, fear, and more. He’s not so much a model as a mirror. though much about hi inspires us, not everything invites our admiration or imitation. But everything - his character, his prayers, his relationships, his decisions, his actions, his mistakes - demands our full attention and prayerful reflection. We will explore the David story, not to find “leadership principles” but to reflect on the life of a real man and leader in real time, seek wisdom for our own life and time.

LOCATION - Brentview Baptist Church - 3512 Charleswood Drive NW

The Art and Craft of Engaged Preaching

Presenter / Facilitator - Joyce Rees, Lead Pastor at Epic Vineyard Church

In an era of profound story-telling preaching can seem culturally obsolete. The strength of great preaching goes beyond exegesis. To be effective, story-telling is essential. In fact, in the business world story-telling is touted as the premier communication skill. This course will teach both the art and craft of engaged preaching by tying biblical text to story, and vice-versa.

LOCATION - Brentview Baptist Church - 3512 Charleswood Drive NW
