Preachers School


At the heart of this course is the conviction that preaching still matters. In an age of opinions, confusion and skepticism, both stewarding and strengthening our unique voice has never mattered more. God is raising up preachers on the earth; they will preach the gospel, stir the hearts, equip the body, and lead the church to transition from old failing paradigms to engage God’s future kingdom. The redemptive story of God is unfolding on the earth like never before, and if we get a group of us in the same room to listen, dream and explore, who knows what will happen.

TUITION   $500  |    TUITION + COACHING   $750
