Workshop Descriptions

The Preaching Elder

Do you need someone to help preach when you are gone on vacation or a mission trip? If so, bring someone with you to the National Preaching Summit to learn in four sequential workshops how to craft and deliver a sermon.

Keeping Focus in a Disillusioned World
In times of crisis and disorientation humanity often gravitates toward oversimplified solutions. Dr. Owens explores this human tendency and urges Christian leaders to take a different approach that draws people into a Kingdom perspective.

Preaching from the Overflow
In this season of fear, mistrust and division the need for deep preaching is critical. Dr. Owens explores two key elements in consistently developing transformational sermons and worship services.
