Advanced Preaching Workshop
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 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 are interdisciplinary, combining the teaching of an experienced biblical preacher with experts in fields like literature, workplace theology, counselling and culture.
The second workshop on Bible Teaching and Everyday Dilemmas will start on Saturday 13 August. It will be available both on-campus and off-campus (live online). Running this workshop will be Rev Dr Sam Chan (cultural analyst, public speaker with City Bible Forum) and Kara Martin (author, lecturer and researcher).
