10 Credits. This course will also have a weekend together in Wellington in July to cover the first third of the course but the content will be repeated online for those who cannot make the in-person weekend. The dates and times for the online classes will be advised early in 2022.

The course introduces participants with tools and resources for the composition, delivery and evaluation of sermons in a variety of styles. Participants will examine the roles of the preacher and sermon within the life of the church, theories of interpretation applied in preaching, the importance of caring for the voice as an instrument, apply interpretive and imaginative skills to construct a sermon as well as deliver and evaluate a sermon.
