Duke Divinity School is now accepting applications to participate in the 2022 DDS Preaching Cohort. This experience is generously funded by The Parish Ministry Fund and will be taught by the Rev. Dr. Michael B. Brown. Dr. Brown has practiced ministry for half a century, with his primary focus being on the Calling and Craft of Preaching. Cohort members will be guided through a strategic approach to that work, taking into consideration theory and practice for improving one's skills in the pulpit. You can learn more about Dr. Brown by visiting his website

The curriculum is designed to be completed in nine sessions that will meet once a month over the course between March and November. The sessions are tentatively planned to take place on Thursday afternoons, with the first session meeting on March 10. Each session will require advance reading and preparation and will entail approximately 120 minutes of lecture and discussion. With the exception of one session where the cohort will meet in person, the remaining sessions will take place virtually. Sessions are tentatively titled:
 
1)       The Preacher’s Call – from God and for People
2)      Styles and Sources
3)      The Message and the Messenger: Mechanics
4)      Thematic Sources
5)      Preaching for the People
6)      The Preacher and Self Care
7)      More Than One Pulpit
8)      A Group Exercise
9)      In Conclusion
 
The program is made available to clergy in the WNCC who wish to take their preaching to the next level. Space is limited. If you are interested in participating please click on the following link to complete a short application by Friday, January 28.
