Preach the Word 2014


How can pastors connect the agenda of the kingdom of Christ to the cultures of local congregations for the sake of the mission of the gospel in the world? What role does the pulpit play in addressing issues of ethics and religious liberty? Join us for a one-day preaching workshop with Dr. Russell Moore, President of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, as we examine these question and discuss the role that preaching plays in these tasks. Dr. Moore will address the three key topics of Kingdom, Culture, and Mission and discuss how we can effectively and faithfully preach in light of each.
