This first-ever African-American Preaching Summit will be held on July 13-15, at Lake Junaluska, and will bring together African-American pastors to explore effective sermon preparation as practiced by outstanding African-American preachers in The United Methodist Church. Clergy will explore various approaches to the art of preaching that fit the unique context of preaching in African-American congregations. Pastors will learn how effective preaching can revitalize their worship services and attract more people to their churches. Pastors will also discover how outstanding preaching can set the foundation for developing effective disciples for Jesus Christ. Lastly, but in no way least, participants will get to hear some of the best and most powerful preaching around! For more information and to register, go to Preaching Summit.
