Preaching I

AQF: 6/7/8 hybrid

Lecture Week: Monday 25 – Friday 29 September 2023


There are not many more important responsibilities in the life of the church than the task of preaching God's word. Whether it is speaking to children, youth, at evangelistic outreaches, or to a Sunday congregation, communicating God's timeless truth in the Bible with accuracy, pastoral warmth, and relevance is a challenging task that requires diligence, prayer, and hard work. But where do you start? What is the process of moving from the ancient text to the modern world?

In this very hands-on unit, we’ll overview the theological and pastoral issues involved in preaching as well as introduce the basic techniques required for communicating the Scriptures. You’ll be given an opportunity to develop your communication skills as well as listen to and engage with others doing the same.
