May 6-8, 2014 Speaking the Word Freely Preaching

Have you ever tried to get 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. Pastor Larson has taught this method to more than 300 pastors in the KAIROS program during the past 10 years under the name Process Preaching. 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.”
