OVERVIEW OF PREACHING LAB
Each day follows the same pattern. In the morning, participants are engaged with learning key elements and steps which lead to sermons that are grounded in Scripture and are life-giving to listeners. In the afternoon, participants are engaged in individual and small group work; trying out their new skills on a passage of Scripture. In the evening, the trainer preaches a sermon from the same Bible passage and the participants have an opportunity to critique the sermon in the light of what they are learning.
1. It will improve your preaching significantly.
Mark writes “I can honestly say that this training is both the simplest and most transformational preaching training I have ever participated in. I’ve been preaching for over 20 years, I’ve done the course twice and both times, people have noticed, the quality, clarity and conviction of my preaching improve, deepen and strengthen. I’ve heard on both occasions, long established preachers express something similar”
2. It will give you the content and methodology to be training new preachers in your church.
Everything about the course: it’s clear content, the practical way it’s taught, and the simple material used is designed so that you can train the course to the next generation of preachers in your church without the workload or hassle of starting from scratch. This method of training, reduces your preparation time, simplifies the training process and gives you the flexibility to train it in sections that work for you.
Darryl writes “I invited a group of young adults and emerging preachers from Crossroads to attend the Last Langham Level 1 Training in Palmerston North in 2016. I would get constant feedback from Elders and others from around the church about “what happened at that preaching week? How is it that these emerging preachers messages have improved so significantly so quickly”
