Five highly-regarded and experienced preachers (see below) will help you construct and preach sermons that will have a transformational impact on listeners to the glory of God. You will improve the effectiveness of your preaching in specially-focused areas as you study the importance of living a personal life consistent with those areas. Special attention will be given to: missions, victorious Christian living, apologetics, and special events (e.g., Christmas, Lent, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day). Attention will also be given to audience analysis in sermon preparation and delivery.
