Homiletics (27th - 28th June 2020)
The focus of this course (compulsory module) is the practical task of preparing a sermon. The preparation of a sermon needs the basic skill of studying the Bible passage, discovering and analysing the exegetical idea, shaping those ideas into a homiletical theme, developing an outline and then turning it into a sermon-proper. This course will help the participant grasp the fundamentals of preaching and the process involved in the making of a sermon. In addition, the participant will explore the ingredients for effective preaching and learn to restore its centrality to worship in the church.
By the end of this course, you will:-
- Be ready to prepare expository sermons, beginning with the process of choosing the passage to bringing it to a full-fledged sermon.
- Be ready to deliver the sermon more effectively.
- Be more aware and discerning of the ingredients for a good sermon.
- Be aware of the key components of the communication process and its usefulness to the preacher.
