CMIN 602 - Preaching and Worship as Congregational Formation


3 hours
Throughout the late 20th Century, both preaching and worship were often viewed as attractive elements for the seeking public. As the West has become increasingly post-Christian and less and less people are arriving “at church” in search of God, preaching and worship must recover their constitutive and formational purpose; equipping the church to faithfully fulfill its mission in the world. This course will explore the ways in which the work of the preacher and the work of liturgy are necessary corporate means of grace for bearing a counter-cultural witness to the Kingdom of God in this world. In addition, students will be provided to opportunities to prepare and preach sermons, explore language that connects with congregations, and evaluate the integral connection between Preaching and Worship.
