EMA '14: Sinclair Ferguson - Preaching and the Glory of God (1)
Sinclair Ferguson looks at the theological foundations of preaching and why it is so vital. He says preaching is God's divinely appointed means to reveal himself and his glory in the Church. And he asks, what is the glory of God and why does he reveal it in words? How are the words of scripture connected to the words of preachers? and Practically what does this mean for the preacher in prepartaion, delivery method and prayer life.

The Evangelical Ministry Assembly (EMA) is the Proclamation Trust's (PT) flagship gathering of over 1000 Bible preachers and teachers. It is for all those with responsibility for teaching and preaching the word of God in the local church. The PT recognises that such ministry is sometimes counter-cultural, can often be lonely and is always hard work. The EMA therefore is planned to both challenge and encourage preachers in the task to which Christ has called them and provide a place to meet others involved in the same ministry so that they can spur one another on.
The main aim of the Proclamation Trust is to teach the Bible to preachers in order that they can in turn teach it to others, as well as to provide a fellowship of like-minded evangelicals across the denominations for encouragement in this work. For more information see: www.proctrust.org.uk.
