Workshops

Preaching Plan

We are committed to expository or biblical preaching and we believe that a practical way to accomplish this is to preach through books of the bible.  We will offer five core workshops that will teach you the theology and overview of the book of Corinthians along with giving you a preaching plan for how to preach through this book of the bible.  One of our goals is for you to leave our conference with a 3-6 month preaching plan.
