More about Talks:

David Helm
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.

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.

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.

‘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.

Matthias Lohmann
Church Membership and 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.

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.

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.

Biblical Leadership:
This talk looks at how to biblically exercise authority in the church, so that it blesses those under pastoral care.
