where Christ was not known (Romans 15:20)
Are you called and have the desire to preach the Word of God and would like to sharpen your communicating skills? Are you a lay pastor or a pastor who would like to improve your preaching through some practical training?
In the spirit of C.H. Spurgeon's effective school for training preachers, the Center for Preaching’s is pleased to offer the Advanced Preachers' College.
Preach UP is designed to give advanced training in homiletic principles in an intensive two and half day seminar. The purpose is to provide men and women who already have a basic grasp of preaching and make their communications more effective and relevant. (Note: you do not have to have already attended the Preachers' College to attend Preach UP.)
About the College:
Who Should Attend
The conference will teach the advanced skills of sermon preparation and delivery. If you preach regularly or have a good grasp on the basic homiletic skills and would like to make your preaching even better, this conference is 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. Each year we will center it around a different theme. This year's theme is Take Your Preaching to the Next Level.
