Communicating the Gospel: Transformed by God's Story

Seminar by the Sea: A Continuing Education/ Master of Ministry Opportunity

In a high-tech, instant communication, media-saturated culture, how can a preacher become more than just a "talking head" and convey that there is something profoundly transformational about the message of God's Story? This five day course will examine the critical linkage between cultural context and scriptural content that results in transformative preaching. Preaching is more than good advice; it is Good News!
