Moving beyond the basics of public speaking and the foundations necessary for preparing an engaging sermon, this course also includes types of sermons – from exegetical to topical to children’s sermons – as well as how to find a story, use the hymnal, and how to move from communication on paper to beyond the paper.
This course is an Advanced Course and is different from the Called to Preach course which is a Core Course. This course is for clergy or laity and is equivalent to 1 CEU.
