Missional Preaching

January 16, 2024 - March 5, 2024
Tuesday Mornings 10:00am to 12:00pm EST January 16-March 5, 2024

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 and allows the following process to unfold: “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.)
