      Journey: From Text to Congregation (ACU Preaching Seminar)

      Every preacher knows it. The path must be taken each week. How do you provide fresh and vibrant messages to your congregation once every seven days? This important question finds a valuable resource in ACU’s preaching seminar called Journey, sponsored by the Siburt Institute for Church Ministry. Journey will bring biblical scholars and preachers together to work on texts and to develop the foundations for multiple preaching series. Participants will acquire valuable exegetical insights and helpful frameworks for sermon development. Additionally, noted preachers will explore homiletical means to rekindling the true joy and promise of preaching. Times of worship, hearing sermons, and the fellowship of other ministers will round out the experience. By offering resources and connection with a larger community of preachers, Journey is designed to help the minister to make the weekly journey from text to congregation. Journey will be hosted by Dr. Carson Reed, ACU vice president for church relations and executive director of the Siburt Institute for Church Ministry.  Schedule  Click here for a schedule snapshot.
