Progress in the Pulpit – A ONE day learning experience for pastors and Bible teachers who want to invest in making progress in their personal preaching / teaching ministry, as well as providing some team aspects for church staff and leadership. It is geared toward practical ministry with a recognition and emphasis on the leader’s spiritual journey. We will worship…laugh…learn…grow… pray…and probably cry as we lean into God’s mission of Biblical and Gospel proclamation.

Back to Basics - Learn (or be refreshed in) the basics of sermon preparation and delivery. This is also good for those who prepare to teach in non-pulpit arenas on a regular basis. [Dr. Jim Shaddix]

Pressure Off: Preaching in Teams – Whether you have a staff team or a few volunteers capable (or potentially capable) of preaching / teaching on a regular basis, learn some of the strategic benefits and processes to make this approach work effectively. [Lifepoint Ohio Teaching Team]

Leading Through Preaching – Leading a congregation can be one of the most challenging tasks on the planet. Learn strategies for leveraging the preaching/teaching ministry to help your people respond to the Scriptures in your unique context. [Dr. Chad Keck – First Baptist Church Kettering]

Pressure Off: Planning Your Preaching – There is a unique pressure felt by the pastor who lives in the reality that Sunday comes every week. Having a plan for preaching not only relieves some of the pressure, but also helps with teaching more strategically. [Dr. Art Fulks – FBC Lancaster]

Preaching Toward the Next Generation – Those who invest much of their teaching/preaching ministry in the arena of students not only have audiences with a diverse perspective, but also face several unique challenges. Gain some practical help for your critical ministry. [TBA]
