Equipped Course Unit 1: Why Does Preaching Matter?
This talk provides some foundational reasons as to why preaching is still vitally important in both the contemporary church and the world. Cultural pressures work against this, making preaching seem less and less strategic, even in the view of many ministers. But the role of biblical preachers and their preaching is a crucial one, under God, for the fulfillment of his purposes and the extension of his kingdom. The conviction of this course is that the Spirit of God takes the Word of God to accomplish the work of God, and that there is no plan B.

This course aims to help train up a new generation of faithful and effective Bible preachers by acquiring and developing the necessary practical tools and skills to expound the Bible's message. This includes both the preparation of the text and the presentation of the preaching, so as to connect that message to our contemporary cultures. The course seeks also to motivate the preacher to progress and perseverance, through spiritual encouragement, not only to be a skilled workman, but also to be maturing as a humble servant, whom God can use.
