The Mid-America Preaching Workshop

The Mid-America Preaching Workshop

With special guest Rev. Lee Hull Moses

We are excited to be one of the host churches for this event, presented by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Mid-America, and open to all pastors who would like to participate.

The Mid-America Preaching Workshop invites pastors to collaborate together on the practice of preaching, offering the opportunity to learn from one another and develop key insights to sharpen and strengthen their preaching ministry. With presentations and breakout sessions covering a wide range of practices and possibilities, along with a special presentation led by the Rev. Lee Hull Moses (Executive Director of the Proclamation Project, a new initiative designed to equip and empower preachers to proclaim the good news), there’s something for everyone, whether you are brand new to the pulpit or have been preaching for as long as you can remember.

Breakout Sessions Include:

– Exploring Conversational & Collaborative Modes of Preaching
– Preaching God’s Transforming Justice: Revisiting the Lectionary with insights from Ron Allen & Wil Gafney*
– What Not to Say: Avoiding Common Mistakes That Can Sink Your Sermon (based on the book with the same title)*
– Religious Trauma, Deconstruction & Preaching

Registration – $10

Thanks to the generosity of our underwriters (including the Mid-America region and the Lilly Endowment’s support of the Proclamation Project), registration is only $10 and includes lunch.
