Insight 183: FaithSoaring Churches Take Preaching Seriously
Congregations seeking to transform and the preaching/teaching ministers who lead them, take the art and science of preaching/teaching very serious. Preaching is not just that portion of worship services when some nice words are said about a biblical text. Preaching is an experience where preacher/teacher, God’s written and living Word, and congregation encounter one another.
Joel Gregory, professor of preaching at George W. Truett Theological Seminary, says that “preaching presents the Lord Jesus Christ, introduces a Person, and leads to a relationship as its chief end.” Preaching that informs and inspires is an important part of transforming congregations.
