LINK TO WATCH ALL THE SESSIONS 

Session 1 – Kevin McKay – Biblical Overview of the Church
God has always intended to bring glory to Himself through His image on earth, and this talk looks at how God puts Himself on display in the corporate life of the church which His word creates. // Kevin is lead pastor of Grace Harbor Church in Providence, RI U.S.A, and has served at Capitol Hill Baptist Church and 9Marks in Washington, D.C.

Session 2 – David R. Helm – Pathway to Preparation 
Do you know what you need to know to preach well? In my thirty plus years of preaching I have learned that the challenges of contextualization, exegesis, theological reflection and synthesis require our attention. This session will help us navigate the road. // David is lead pastor of the Hyde Park congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago, IL and Chairman of the Board of the Charles Simeon Trust, an organization dedicated to the sound preaching of God’s Word.

Session 3 – Matthias Lohmann – Church Membership & Discipline
Why we need to define who belongs to the church. This talk will show why it is crucial to define who belongs to the church by practicing both, church membership and – whenever needed – church discipline. // Matthias is pastor of FEG Munich and Chairman of Evangelium21

Session 4 – David R. Helm – Structure
Too many of our sermons don’t have proper shape – they suffer from either too much or too little structure. Our listeners deserve better. And this session will show us how to make progress. //David is lead pastor of the Hyde Park congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago, IL and Chairman of the Board of the Charles Simeon Trust, an organization dedicated to the sound preaching of God’s Word.

Exposition 1 – Kevin McKay – Ephesians 4:1-6
Kevin is lead pastor of Grace Harbor Church in Providence, RI U.S.A, and has served at Capitol Hill Baptist Church and 9Marks in Washington, D.C.

Session 5 – David R. Helm – Gospel
‘Preaching Christ’ in all our sermons has been a recent topic of conversation for preachers. Should we do it? What do we mean by it? And how can we grow in our understanding and execution of it. //David is lead pastor of the Hyde Park congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago, IL and Chairman of the Board of the Charles Simeon Trust, an organization dedicated to the sound preaching of God’s Word.

Session 6 – Matthias Lohmann – Discipleship
Making disciples is more than evangelism. Most Christians understand that Mt 28:18-20 is a call to evangelism and missions. This talk will show that the call to make disciples is much more than that. // Matthias is pastor of FEG Munich and Chairman of Evangelium21

Session 7 – David R. Helm – Audience
Effective preaching requires more than good exegesis – it demands an awareness of your audience. In this session we will explore persuasion as the aim of preaching, with specific strategies to help preachers make progress in reaching their audience. //David is lead pastor of the Hyde Park congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago, IL and Chairman of the Board of the Charles Simeon Trust, an organization dedicated to the sound preaching of God’s Word.

Session 8 – Kevin McKay – Church Leadership
This talk looks at how to biblically exercise authority in the church, so that it blesses those under pastoral care. // Kevin is lead pastor of Grace Harbor Church in Providence, RI U.S.A, and has served at Capitol Hill Baptist Church and 9Marks in Washington, D.C.

Exposition 2 – Matthias Lohmann – 2 Peter 1:16-21
Matthias is pastor of FEG Munich and Chairman of Evangelium21
