Advanced Preaching Workshop

Advanced Preaching Workshop

WHAT: A one day workshop followed up with two Zoom meetings
WHEN: Saturday 28 May 2022
WHERE: Online or on-campus at SMBC Croydon Campus, 43 Badminton Road, Croydon 2132
WHO: Experienced preachers ready to be stretched and challenged

Starting in 2022, the SMBC Centre for Preaching and Pastoral Ministry is offering a rolling series of Advanced Preaching Workshops. Together the 4 different workshops (held across four semesters) can combine to create a 12-credit unit with the Australian College of Theology (ACT) that can contribute to an award like a Graduate Certificate in Divinity, for example (each workshop is a 3 credit unit). The workshop format, made up of 5-6 hours on a Saturday (in hybrid mode*), plus 2 follow up Zoom meetings, requires just 9 interactive teaching hours over a semester. We’re aiming for something deeper than a day conference but less daunting than a full ACT unit. A non-accredited option is also available

These workshops will bring something fresh to you as a preacher. They will be interdisciplinary, combining the teaching of an experienced biblical preacher with experts in fields like literature, workplace theology, counselling and culture.

The first workshop on Bible Teaching and the Art of Story will start on Saturday 28 May. It will be available both on-campus and off-campus (live online). Running this workshop will be Dr Jonathan Dykes (Executive Director of Katoomba Convention) and Kristen Young (SMBC Director of Student and Community Care and author). They'll be looking at understanding how stories work and what they’re designed to do, as well as connecting Old Testament stories powerfully with the lives and experiences of your listeners.
