New Book by Talbot Davis Launches

February 13, 2020

By: John Howard

On Tuesday, February 4, Central UMC in Asheboro hosted a preaching workshop with Talbot Davis called Simplify the Message, Multiply the Impact. This event coincided with the official release day of Talbot’s new book on preaching of the same title. Close to 40 people attended the workshop and book release gathering, each received a copy of the book as a gift from the Uwharrie District.

The workshop itself focused on the power of one point sermons and how to take people on a sermon adventure rather than a sermon outline. Participants learned how to wordsmith bottom lines and write manuscripts for the ear.   

Talbot Davis is the lead pastor of Good Shepherd UMC in Charlotte and has published five other books through Abingdon Press. 

This event was sponsored by the Uwharrie District and Central UMC- Asheboro. Special thanks to Kim Hopkins, District Office Administrator for her support and the Central UMC staff for their hospitality.
