5-Day Intensive Course
During our 5-day intensive course at The Center you will drink from a fire hydrant of teaching covering exegetical tools, biblical theology, sermon preparation, and sermon delivery. The aim of the course is personal and practical. You will leave equipped to make your sermon preparation each week personal and you will leave equipped with the practical tools to develop and deliver clear and compelling sermons.
At our 5-day course:
You will learn practicals of sermon preparation and delivery. Where should you start each week with sermon preparation? How do you organize everything you learn from a biblical text into a coherent sermon? What should your sermon notes look like? Practical questions like these, and many more, are covered throughout the course.
You will learn to experience Christ in the Bible as you prepare sermons. If sermon preparation is just dry and rigorous, how long will you last as a preacher? Sermon preparation is time spent in God’s Word and therefore it is time spent hearing from and experiencing God in the Bible, even as you put together a sermon.
You will learn to see how the entire Bible points to the Savior, Jesus Christ. There is a lot of talk about how the whole Bible is about Jesus but there are few opportunities to learn what it looks like to see how every text of Scripture points to the Good News of Christ and then to prepare a sermon accordingly. Our course teaches nuts and bolts of faithful exegesis to draw out the meaning of every text as it unfolds the message of the Gospel.
You will learn to prepare and deliver sermons that preach the Bible in clear and compelling ways. The goal of a Bible preacher is to not only present clear biblical truths but to do so in a way that captures hearts and minds. Our course drills down into how to develop a sermon from start to finish, from crafting an introduction and preparing a transition statement to using illustrations and closing a sermon.
