Practical Preaching in the Digital Age

April 8, 2024 - May 27, 2024
From 04/08/2024 to 05/27/2024 - TBD
Registration is $245 or $215 for students from their local formation partner dioceses and members of the Association for Episcopal Deacons.

This is a hands-on preaching and digital ministry course for new preachers. Learn to preach from the ground up comfortable in the pulpit and online. This will NOT be manuscript preaching! We will practice a conversational, video-friendly, note-free sharing of Good News.

Preachers will learn to:

  • Use the ‘Triangle Preaching Process’ – Scripture, situation, self.
  • Create and upload video sermons – even when you preach in-person.
  • Develop sermon study resources – and why you shouldn’t preach your exegesis!
  • Give constructive feedback to others – and how this makes us better preachers.

The goal of this course is growing in comfort and skill as the preacher you are called to be.
