Through this course, students will identify trends in culture and explore modes of communication likely to be effective in a variety of cultural contexts. Students will examine how narrative functions to create meaning, and learn how to engage, interpret,  apply, and incarnate the Biblical text in faithful, creative, and prophetic ways. Special attention will be given to the link between theology of the church and preaching. Using a  collaborative environment, we will seek to nurture the heart and head of the preacher as well as the art and craft of preaching.

The course facilitator is Reuben Munn, who is an experienced preacher, teacher and pastor at Shore Community Church.

Students may enrol in the course for credit in a Laidlaw programme, for credit for just the course through a Certificate of Proficiency, or in a limited number of non-formal (not for credit) places.
