APPL 619/DMPM 999 GS - aDVANCED PRECHING mENTORSHIP GUIDED STUDY
WITH SAM TSANG
TERM DATES: Sept 28 - DEC 4, 2020
3 CREDIT HOURS
The demands of the modern pulpit challenge all preachers to rise to the occasion every Sunday morning. While the introductory course on preaching shows a basic approach, this course will explore the unique gift of each preacher to tailor-make each individual style. The students will learn tools to calibrate individual parts of the sermon through understanding of how rhetoric works so that this is only the beginning and not the end of a lifetime journey into homiletic. This course uses a more personal approach to equip them for this admirable task. The task should be divided into exegesis, ethics, theology and rhetoric. Theological education tends to keep the disciplines of exegesis, ethics and theology in separate discipline. Such studies without proper expressions can be a hindrance instead of help in preaching. The students in this course will learn to integrate these disciplines into a rhetorical whole so that their preaching will build up their congregations every Sunday morning.
