Goodson Preaching Academy
Craft & Creativity: Preaching in the Context of a Rapidly Evolving World

Monday, September 21, 2015 - Thursday, September 24, 2015

The Bishops’ Foundation announces the 2015 Goodson Preaching Academy, “Craft and Creativity: Preaching in the Context of a Rapidly Evolving World”, September 21-24, at the Blackstone Conference and Retreat Center, with Dr. Paul Scott Wilson as our presenter. He is Professor of Homiletics at Emmanuel College, Toronto, the author of many books on preaching and past president of the Academy of Homiletics.

Modeled after the former Goodson Academy for Preaching, the Bishops’ Foundation approved the launching of this ministry venture for clergy seeking excellence in the joyous craft of weekly preaching.  The event is designed to energize your preaching and help you find creative ways to build disciples in your church. The Bishops’ Foundation is assuming much of the costs of this event to make it possible for you to attend.  1 CEU will be awarded.  

Please go to these pdf links to download  a letter with information, a schedule, and a sermon response sheet ‘Preaching in the Context of a Congregation.’  All this is important for you to read and review.
