“Preach with Precision, Passion, and Purpose”
Please join us for a homiletic workshop in Ocean city led by Princeton Theological Seminary Assistant Professor of Worship and Preaching, the Reverend Gerald C. Liu, Ph.D. We will begin by reviewing key concepts like “focus” and “function” from Thomas G. Long’s The Witness of Preaching (soon-to-be-released in a third edition for 2016) and together revise and review actual sermons from you. Please bring drafts of your upcoming proclamations or sermons that you have previously preached.
