Are you called to preach the Word of God but have not had a chance to learn how?
In the spirit of C.H. Spurgeon’s effective school for training preachers, the Center for Preaching is pleased to provide Preachers’ College.
Preachers’ College is designed to give training in basic homiletic principles in an intensive two and half day seminar to lay members who occasionally preach in their churches. The purpose is to provide men and women who have been called to preach with the essential tools needed to compose and present biblical, relevant, and effective sermons.
The conference will teach the basics of sermon preparation and delivery. If you are a lay member, and preach somewhat regularly, and think you might benefit from knowing well the fundamentals of preaching, this conference may be for you. We want to equip men and women who are serving as pastors and lay preachers with the ability to preach biblical, clear, relevant, and effective sermons.
