PREACHING CHRIST FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT Bridges

In his famous work, Lectures to My Students, Spurgeon writes, “Don’t you know, young man, that from every town and every village and every hamlet in England, wherever it may be, there is a road to London? So from every text of Scripture there is a road to Christ. And my dear brother, your business is, when you get to a text, to say, now, what is the road to Christ . . . for the sermon cannot do any good unless there is a savor of Christ in it.” What does it mean to “preach Christ” from every text? Are there legitimate “roads to Christ” in the Old Testament?

THE BOOKENDS OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE Bridges

As Christians we know we are saved by grace. Many of us, however, tend to live our Christian lives out of a performance mentality, relying on our supposedly good works to earn God's daily favor, and on our own will-power to live the Christian life. The "Bookends" will help us learn to rely on Christ's righteousness for our daily favor with God, and on the Holy Spirit for the enabling power to live the Christian life.

THE MISSIONAL CHURCH | THE MISSIONAL PASTOR

Session 1: The church has obscured her identity and, consequently, the reason for her existence. This confusion has compromised the church’s effectiveness in accomplishing the mission of God. What will it take for the Church to remedy this dilemma and thus winsomely and effectively engage the culture with the gospel?

Session 2: We are relentlessly pulled in a number of directions, frequently finding ourselves short of the time necessary to accomplish the pastoral task. Therefore, we must discern what is central to our God-given mission. Together, we will examine the Scriptures to see what it means to be a missional pastor who faithfully pursues this call.

SPIRIT EMPOWERED PREACHING Azurdia

Apart from the empowerment of the Spirit, even our most diligent exegetical efforts fall short of transforming the people to whom we preach. But what does it mean to preach “in the power of the Spirit?” Is this something to be sought by preachers? Can this experience be defined biblically and objectively, not merely anecdotally? What role does the Holy Spirit play in the actual proclamation event?

THE NEED TO PREACH ECCLESIASTES IN AN AGE OF FOLLY
DOCTRINE THAT DANCES
Johnson
Session 1: Most congregants have a disparaging view of Ecclesiastes, while most preachers tend to avoid this book. But could Ecclesiastes be one of the most timely, significant books for our present culture? If so, how in the world do we preach it?

Session 2: "Ministers who dare to preach doctrinally must always remember that they not only participate in rightly dividing the word of truth before the congregation, but that they are also divided by that same word.” But what happens to the man who, while laboring at preaching, fails to experience the truth being proclaimed? What are the effects of this on the congregation? How can a preacher be touched by the Word he proclaims?

SUCCESSFUL OR FAITHFUL: SHATTERING THE DICHOTOMY Azurdia

Every year thousands of good men leave the pastoral ministry convinced they are failures. Why? They’ve been seduced by what William James bitingly calls “the bitch goddess of success.” But is “success” always a dirty word, implying the inevitability of compromise? Is failure, by default, the defining feature of faithfulness? How should pastors measure success? How does Jesus shape our thinking about success in gospel ministry?

Should expressions of worship be defined by our distinct cultural mores? How should the gospel influence our corporate worship?

TODD MILES: THE KING OF THE KINGDOM
DON CARSON: A PASTORAL THEOLOGY OF SUFFERNING AND EVIL

Miles

Carson

Todd Miles: "The King Of The Kingdom." The evangelical church has historically struggled with the tension between the proclamation of the gospel and a call to social action. Recently, the rise of the Emerging Church has shifted attention to the biblical theme of the kingdom of God, often couched in a call to social action and missional living. But can there be a kingdom without the gospel? Can there be a kingdom without a King?

Don Carson: "A Pastoral Theology Of Suffering And Evil." In a world running over with suffering and evils of many kinds, one of the most urgent and yet perennial imperatives of pastors is helping people cope with such awful realities. This is a modest attempt to show how several complementary biblical perspectives must be melded together to forge a coherent pastoral theology, thereby grounding grief counseling in the Word of God and in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Discouragement in ministry can give way to depression. Depression frequently succumbs to despair. Despair often eventuates in defeat. Sadly, statistics indicate that men are abandoning the pastoral ministry in unprecedented proportions. How can pastors successfully complete the marathon of ministry? By what means can they happily and faithfully persevere?

We want our preaching to be effective. This necessitates a commitment to clarity. But unlike written clarity, speakers need a unique set of oral skills for listeners to follow along successfully. What are these oral skills? How are they cultivated? What are the factors that contribute to losing the enthusiastic engagement of the congregation?
