Process Preaching is a system for delivering sermons freely without reading a manuscript or simply speaking off the cuff. The system emphasizes the importance of first creating the sermon by writing a full manuscript. Without reading or memorizing the manuscript, preachers are then taught to speak freely what they have written through a specific kind of oral rehearsal.

The system recognizes the tremendous difference between the oral and written worlds of communication. Process Preaching enables the preacher to use oral language to express the thoughts and ideas of a written text.

A message from your instructor is below.

It is vitally important to bring a sermon manuscript that you will be preaching shortly after returning home from the seminar. You will have a chance to try out extemporaneous delivery right away.

Maximum Enrollment: 15
