Speaking the Word Freely

May 9-11, 2017 Preaching

Have you ever tried to move away from reading your sermons? Over the years you have honed your writing skills and are able to fill your sermons each week with creative and inspiring material. The problem comes with delivering your carefully crafted messages in a powerful way. Perhaps you would like to speak your sermon freely without reading it word-for-word but have not been able to figure out a method for doing so. Pastor Jerry Larson has developed a process that can help you speak your sermon manuscripts freely in the extemporaneous mode. Larson has taught this method to more than

300 pastors in the KAIROS program during the past 13 years.

Students say:

  • “This process is the missing piece I’ve been looking for. It’s a game changer for me. I am energized because it is challenging to write the sermon and then prepare to speak it freely.”
  • “Since taking the workshop, many people have commented to me about how much of a difference they see and how much better my preaching is now.”
  • “I continue to be inspired by your class and feel that I have been given a fresh, engaging approach to sermon delivery.”
  • “Thank you for the workshop. I think I’ve had good content in my preaching, but this goes to the next level.”
