Preaching on Mission: Preaching in Ways that faithfully and truthfully engage the text and the context

Preaching on Mission: Preaching in Ways that faithfully and truthfully engage the text and the context

“The Church is not meant to call men and women out of the world into a safe religious enclave
but to call them out in order to send them back as agents of God’s kingship”

-- Lesslie Newbigin --

This year for preaching day we are delighted that Ed Stetzer, Professor and Dean at Wheaton College and the Executive Director of the Wheaton College Billy Graham Center, will be our speaker.

Ed has revitalized, and pastored churches, trained pastors and church planters on six continents, he has written hundreds of articles and a dozen books including Christians in the Age of Outrage: How to Bring our Best when the World is at its Worst and Planting Missional Churches. With his broad ecclesial experience and his commitment to fostering and encouraging churches in the Mission of God, Ed will be bringing his practical experience and wisdom to address the question of preaching mission in the Church today.
