Mark your calendars for this year's Preaching Conference on Tuesday, April 28, 2020. The theme of this year's conference is Preaching with Millennials and Gen Z in Mind.
Our main speaker will be the Rev. Dr. Mary Hulst, University Pastor at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Mary earned her MDiv from Calvin Theological Seminary and a PhD in communication ethics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is an ordained minister in the Christian Reformed Church and spent eight years serving as Senior Pastor at Easter Avenue CRC in Grand Rapids. Her recent book A Little Handbook for Preachers, released in 2016, is a wise and practical resource to making sermons better and is full of wisdom both for students and for experienced preachers. If you’d like to hear Mary in action, watch a recent message she preached at Gordon-Conwell on Psalm 42: “For Weary Souls.” You won’t be disappointed!
There will also be a variety of practical workshops offered by Gary V. Nelson, Helen Noh, Narry Santos, Rebecca Idestrom, James T. Robertson, Marilyn Draper, and Daniel Wong.
