Registration closes February 17

In a world filled with divisions, the Gospel can connect with God and one another. One way that we can bridge the gaps within our congregation is by sharing our stories and the stories of Christ. This year's virtual Preaching Academy, hosted online on February 21-23, will focus on effective storytelling and practical ways to learn from the stories of others. During the Academy, there is an opportunity to update your preaching toolkit and to learn new narrative preaching techniques.

You will also meet in peer learning groups and process the joys and challenges of preaching. These small groups will give you space to share your story and sermon ideas before stepping into the pulpit. Additionally, we will be providing you with resources to help with your sermon preparation, including the ability to work with a small group to plan an upcoming sermon series.
