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”


COURSE MODULES

1. PREACHING THE SCRIPTURES

The first session draws on the Scriptural examples of leaders expounding the Word of God. This introductory session is to appeal to participants' hearts and minds to commit to preaching sermons which drill down into Scripture.

2. TRUTHS TO HOLD US

This session draws out "What we believe" and how that affects what we preach. By the end of this session the group will have developed a Theology and Vision for preaching.

3. OBSERVING THE PASSAGE

Here we introduce the participants to several simple steps and questions to ask the Biblical passage when studying it. As a result the preacher will begin to see patterns and key ideas in the Scripture they are preaching from.

4. UNDERSTANDING THE PASSAGE

This session will introduce participants to the skills in recognising the different kinds of writings in Scripture and the need to appreciate time/place/purpose of various books in the Bible. This session will help the preacher to remain true to the intent of the Bible.

5. TEXT TO SERMON

Now we look at how to take on the previous steps and begin to create structure and flow in a sermon. All that study now is shaped into the message to be preached.

6. PREACHING THE SINGLE STORY OF THE BIBLE

We look at the overall message/single story of the Bible and how it tracks through the 66 books of the Bible. Here we will learn how to see the rich biblical themes and why this matters when you are preaching.

7. MAKING THE CONNECTION

Here we look at how we ground the message we are preaching in the lives of those who are listening. The participants will create three very important lists in this session to give them an understanding of the world they are preaching to.

8. THE LIFE OF INTEGRITY

We can teach preaching but we can't teach character. This final session will explore the person of the preacher and the life we are called to. Preaching is not just something we do; it is who we are.
