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!


  • Dr. Robert Smith: Dr. Smith is a beloved and appreciated professor of religion at Point Loma Nazarene University. His grasp of Scripture and commitment to effective preaching inspires and challenges those he teaches.
  • Dr. Dean Flemming: Dr. Flemming is a global missionary and New Testament scholar who has served the church as missionary, pastor, and university professor. He currently serves as professor of New Testament and missions at MidAmerica Nazarene University. 
  • Dr. Reuben Welch: Dr. Welch, associate professor emeritus of religion and former chaplain at Point Loma Nazarene University, has a unique ability to blend biblical truth with practical application. He is a renowned preacher, teacher and author.
