This is an introductory course to preaching and the mechanics which surround the preaching event. The student will become well-acquainted with the sevenfold preaching paradigm which surrounds the preaching event. This comprehensive model presents seven necessary ingredients for effective preaching which include such items as developing the student’s personal philosophy of preaching and encouraging the proper outline-structure of a biblical passage for the purpose of clear and effective preaching. 

As a result of taking this course, the student will be able to demonstrate comprehension of the professor’s preaching paradigm called Preaching for Life Change. In addition the student will learn the mechanics of preaching through the S.P.E.A.C. Model which will prepare the student for the preaching event itself.
