Graymere Preaching Workshop

January 4, 2013

The new year has begun, and with it have come a lot of New Year’s Resolutions. One of mine has been to utilize my blog more often (although that seems to be a resolution every year). I want to begin by sharing about an event I am really looking forward to next month. On February 25th, we will be hosting a Preaching Workshop at Graymere. It will be focused on preaching Matthew’s gospel, and we have a great line-up of teachers to make presentations, answer questions, and provide resources. You could think of it as a one-day short course on the gospel of Matthew. While there will be a particular focus on preaching, it will be helpful for all those who teach the Bible to teens and adults.

Graymere has always provided resources for ministry, and this is just another way we can help people who are preaching and teaching. There are several preachers in Maury County who are in vocational ministry, working another job during the week and preaching on Sundays. It can be hard for them to take off enough time for a conference, lectureship, or seminar. But attending a one day event might be easier. Of course, those who are in full-time ministry have packed schedules as well, so a one day event can work for them. We have tried to pack in as much content as possible into one day, and it only costs $10. Here is our schedule:

7:45 – 8:45 – Breakfast

9:00 –  “Matthew’s Gospel in its Cultural Context”   by Dr. Tom Alexander, Harding University

10:15 – “The Presentation of Jesus as Messiah in Matthew’s Gospel”    by Dr. Ed Gallagher, Heritage Christian University

11:30 – Panel Discussion

12:00 – 1:00 – Lunch

1:00 – “Challenging Texts in Matthew’s Gospel”   by Dr. Doug Burleson, Freed-Hardeman University

2:15 – Ministry Panel Presentations by Dr. Kirk Brothers (Freed-Hardeman University), Dan Chambers (Concord Road Church of Christ), Dr. Sellers Crain (Rivergate Church of Christ), and Barry Throneberry (Highland Church of Christ)

3:30 – Ministry Panel Q & A

4:30 – Conclusion/Dismissal

Breakfast and lunch will be great. One of our members is cooking a big country breakfast, and another one of our members is catering our lunch. $10 will get you both of those meals, as well as a workshop notebook. We have approximately 30 signed up for it already. If you would like to sign up, just go here.

We also have limited housing available for those who would need to come on Sunday night in order to get there on Monday morning. Let us know when you register if you need housing. Please pass this along to anyone you think would enjoy it. It is going to be a great day!
