Attendance at both classes April 13 AND 27 is required to get credit for the class (10-hour classes meet the requirements). Certified lay servants and certified lay speakers are required to take one intensive class (10 hours) every three years. CLM's are required to take a class every year. Both classes will fulfill that requirement. The classes are open to anyone who may be interested.

PLEASE CHOOSE ONE OF THESE TWO CLASSES:

 

PREACHING AND EXEGESIS - Rev. Scott Ogden – Instructor

This is an introduction or refresher course on preaching and exegesis. Why both? Because you can’t do one without the other. You cannot preach God’s word until you first exegete!  This class will discuss the reasons for preaching and preaching styles; learn about, review, use resources for and practice exegesis; discuss methods of sermon preparation, and look at resources for preaching. There will not be time for preparing, presenting, or evaluating each other’s preaching.

Materials: You will explore a concordance. If you have one bring that along with resources, you use for sermon preparation.

 

LEADING IN THE HARD TIMES - Provisional Elder Joshua Davinsizer – Instructor

Have you ever found yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place? If you are like most leaders in the church, then this is a very common dilemma that many people struggle with in ministry. Ministry is both a reward and a challenge where we are called to help shepherd God’s people. The question arises is how do we as leaders best handle change, the effects of change, and to stay true to Christ’s mission for the Church through this change. In this class, we will be tackling how to be an effective leader, leading change without losing it, and overcoming the seven greatest challenges every leader faces.

 

To prepare for the class, please purchase the book “Didn’t See It Coming: Overcoming the Seven Greatest Challenges That No One Expects and Everyone Experiences” by Carrie Nieuwhof.   Deadline to register is April 5.
