Dr. Hollie Miller, Pastor of Sevier Heights Baptist Church, Knoxville, and Dr. Doug Sager, Retired Pastor of First Baptist Church, Concord, are two of several featured speakers in the Bible Training Center’s summer intensive class. BTC’s Contemporary Christian Preaching will be offered on the campus of The King’s Academy in Seymour.
Dr. Mike Boyd, Pastor of Wallace Memorial Baptist Church, will begin the series. Boyd has just written a book on preaching will be given to every student enrolled. Dr. Bruce Martin, Pastor of Mount Harmony Baptist Church, past director of the Bible Training Center, rounds out the list of special guests.
BTC Director Dr. Mark Martin says, “Ministers can get stuck in a rut preparing sermons week after week. This class features four well known pastors who have the knowledge and experience to help. Each speaker will share his process of organizing and delivering sermons.”
Contemporary Christian Preaching class will meet 6 to 9 p.m., Monday evenings, June 17 through July 22. The class is a study of the role of preaching and the preacher, the scope and purpose of the sermon, and how to organize and deliver a sermon.
The Bible Training Center is designed for adults in bi-vocational ministry. Classes are open to the public. The summer intensive course applies toward the Diploma in Biblical Studies from the Southern Baptist Convention Seminary Extension.
