Get to the Good News

”Preach with the Bible in one hand and the newspaper in the other.” With apologies to Karl Barth, in today’s church and world you should have your phone in the other hand!

This course is for experienced preachers who are ready to ditch the manuscript – and the academic style of preaching from the 20th century – and get straight to the Good News for today’s listeners.

Using the Triangle Preaching Process (Scripture, situation, self), preachers will learn how to:

  • Engage a media savvy (and theology-starved) congregation.
  • Craft sermons that work from the pulpit and social media.
  • Sum up their main point in 60-seconds – and leave listeners powerfully impacted by the love of God.
  • Quit the bad preaching habits they’ve carried over from last century!

The goal of this course is to inject new life and more Good News into your preaching process and delivery.
