How do we connect God’s mission, and therefore the mission of the church, with the culture in which we live and speak in ways that help people make sense of their lives and their purpose through the lens of the Gospel? How can our words as preachers help others follow Jesus’ Way of Love more closely? How can we equip people to share their transformed lives in a way that opens a generous door into faith and Christian community?
“Witness[ing] to the way of Love changes the witness, changes those who witness the witness, and changes the world in which the witness is made.”
(Michael B. Curry, Songs My Grandma Sang [Church Publishing: New York, 2015], 117.)
What You’ll Learn
The course will introduce you to the practice of missional preaching and specifically:
- What we can observe and integrate from scripture about preaching the gospel in a secular context that leads to transformation,
- How we can connect with our people in ways that deepen discipleship but make no assumptions about what they know,
- The impact of sharing our authentic selves and our own faith journey, and
- The critical significance of connecting head and heart.
