Description:

Preaching the Parables: pictures, mirrors, windows and doors

This one-day (10am-4pm) preaching workshop will explore the power of Jesus’s parables, how they work and how to understand them. The focus will be how to preach so that people engage with the parables as if hearing them for the first time. This workshop involves practical exercises and a comprehensive handbook is included.

This training is suitable for emerging and experienced preachers.

This workshop will be led by Rev Dr Geoff New. Geoff is the Dean of Studies at the Knox Centre for Ministry and Leadership (Dunedin). He lectures in preaching and pastoral care. Geoff regularly conducts preaching training in south Asia with Langham Preaching. He has authored three books on preaching. These will be available for purchase at the workshop.
