2023 Preaching Academy - February 15-16

posted on December 23

The Church where likes and livestreaming matters isn’t going away. Pastors today must navigate both preaching to the congregation – and the camera. This year’s Preaching Academy will center on addressing the challenge many of us face: Uniting an online and in-person community in worship. Rev. Dr. Casey Sigmon, professor of homiletics at The Saint Paul School of Theology, will serve as teacher and guide as we discuss how to offer the Word to a digital world.
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.

When: 10 a.m. on February 15 to 11:30 a.m. on February 26
Where: Missouri Annual Conference Office, 3601 Amron Court, Columbia, MO, 65202
Cost: $30 (Wednesday lunch and dinner included)
