Are you a novice preacher?

During the first few years of preaching, the early pastor cultivates habits that will either elevate or undermine his longevity and potency as a preacher. This cohort is designed to re-examine the preachers heart, goals, and delivery since he has now experienced ministry outside of the homiletics class. Special attention will be given to sermon organization, the role of application, and the desperate need for, in the words of D. Martyn Lloyd Jones, ‘the Sacred Anointing’.
