Equipped Course Unit 7: How Does the Preacher Connect?

We will be looking at 1 Corinthians 5: 1-13 and Ephesians 4:17 - 5:2 in our video for this Unit. Preaching is often likened to bridge-building. As preachers we have to cross the bridge of 2,000 plus years back to the biblical books in their context, and then bring their unchanging truths across the bridge to our own contemporary world in a way that connects with our hearers. This video will focus on that bridge-building so that we can learn how to be preachers that connect.

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.
