The preaching class was a profitable course on the essential elements of sermon preparation. I was personally very blessed by the emphasis on the importance of going first to scripture, and then seeking God’s wisdom through prayer before anything else. We also learned principles on the preparation of the outline (being guided by the text). We were taught the importance of the introduction, its purposes, and how to prepare it. Here is a quote from the class: “The first function of the introduction is to direct the minds of your hearers toward the subject or substance of the sermon.” We were thoroughly taught many other aspects of sermon preparation. I highly recommend this course to any man who has a desire to see God glorified and people taught the truth of scripture through the means of preaching or teaching.
