Keeran School of Bible & Ministry

Preaching Roundtable


9:00 AM – 4:00 PM in CNI Boardroom/Young Library 

The role of preaching in the church is changing. It is no longer about simply transferring Bible information; it is about developing mature disciples that can courageously engage a post-Christian culture. Yet there is much that distracts us from effectively hearing God’s word. The question is how do we develop teaching plans that promote healthy discipleship? Also, how do we incorporate creativity in the sermon-planning process?

You are invited to a unique, one-day Preaching Roundtable. In this one-of-a-kind experience, our speakers will not deliver canned lectures but facilitate encouraging conversations about how to engage creative sermon planning in ways that will promote healthy discipleship practices.

Highlights Include: Interacting with our keynote speakers; attending chapel and practical, relevant workshops; sharing lunch with the speakers; potential giveaways; and enjoying an encouraging time with fellow ministers.

“As a preacher, I enjoy the opportunity to sit, listen, and learn from fellow preachers. It reminds me that I have others who are working right along with me!” 2017 Participant

Well Equipped

“I look back at my four years at Kentucky Christian University often and fondly. The classes were relevant, the professors were genuine, and the campus was focused on the schools mission: Christ, Character, Career. I was well equipped to minister to and lead worship in the hundreds of congregations we visit each year as the band “64 to Grayson”. If I went back and was faced with the choice to go to KCU again, I would do it in a heartbeat.”

Zack Shelton, Class of 2013
