Preaching Seminar with Michael Raiter
“PREACHING THAT CONNECTS: GETTING APPLICATIONS RIGHT.
Monday 3rd November at Bulli Anglican Church
“Exegesis is easy. It’s application that’s hard.”
Many of us struggle to bring applications that are true to the text and speak into people’s lives. This workshop will explore how we can preach sermons that connect.
Understandably, Michael loves to come home to his home turf – the Illawarra, especially when he gets to encourage other preachers to be faithful to the call to preach the word of God.
He was here in November last year (at Nowra actually) and helped fire up and equip a room-full of practitioners – from volunteers to veterans.
Michael is a gifted, internationally recognised speaker of the Christian faith. Born in Liverpool, England and raised in New South Wales, Australia, Mike began his career as a high school teacher in Sydney and Pakistan. He studied at Moore Theological College in Sydney, becoming the head of the Department of Missions in 1997.
On concluding his study at Moore, he returned to Pakistan to teach at the Zarephath Bible Institute. Subsequently, he worked with Church Missionary Society Australia and Interserve in Pakistan. From 2006–2011, Mike served as the principal of the Melbourne School of Theology, an evangelical theological college.
Mike is currently the Director of the Centre for Biblical Preaching, an organisation that seeks to train and equip churches around the globe in expository preaching. Mike is also the author of a number of books, including Stirrings of the Soul: Evangelicals and the NewSpirituality which won the 2004 Society for Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Australian Christian Book of the Year award.
Whether you came last year or not, there will be some stimulating preaching and equipping not to be missed.
Why not get your church to sponsor and bring a young preacher whom you believe God is preparing and using.
For… Preachers who are seeking to be encouraged and equipped to preach the Bible to a lost world.
