PROCESS PREACHING: A SYSTEM FOR DELIVERING EXTEMPORANEOUS SERMONS AT SPIRIT IN THE DESERT RETREAT CENTER, CAREFREE, ARIZONA
January 7-9, 2013
Process Preaching is a system for delivering sermons freely without reading a manuscript or simply speaking off the cuff. The system recognizes the tremendous difference between the written world of communication and the oral world. Preachers bring to the seminar a sermon manuscript which they will be taught to speak freely. During the seminar preachers learn how to convert their written words to oral communication. This is done principally by learning a certain kind of oral rehearsal. Using this system preachers are able to deliver their sermons freely using oral language to express the meaning and ideas of the written text.
Students are asked to bring with them a manuscript for a sermon on which they are currently working.
Format: Lectures, extemporaneous preaching demonstrations, group discussion, and an individual session with each student. A manual will be provided for each participant.
