Graduates ready to Preach with Power
The 12-week “Preaching with Power” course was developed by professional trainer and speaker (and pastor) Dr. Dilip Abayasekara, who serves at Middlesex UMC. The course, aimed at clergy, covers The Philosophy of Preaching, Sermon Preparation, Sermon Construction, Sermon Delivery, and Putting It All Together — all based on the foundation of Scripture and God’s power. Course topics explore the differences between preaching, public speaking, and Bible study; knowing your audience; behavioral styles, mind mapping, and creativity; use of multi-media; story-telling; and much more, including the opportunity to deliver and evaluate sermons.
The next course will begin March 8, 2016, at Middlesex UMC in Carlisle, Harrisburg District. To register, contact Candi Shaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-8974-8474 ext. 3200 by February 26, 2016.
