Faithful, creative and effective Word ministry encompasses a variety of forms and skills and requires continual spiritual growth in the Word minister.
This module exposes students to a range of historic and contemporary preaching and teaching styles from different cultures and provides opportunities to develop skills for many contexts (e.g. evangelism and evangelistic preaching, small groups, all-age talks, older audiences).
This module assumes a reasonable amount of prior training in the basics of handling Scripture for word ministry. As a third-year module it also at times assumes a measure of prior theological reflection on word ministry. It is ideal for someone already involved in word ministry, especially in a leadership capacity, who is keen to grow in skills and in theological thinking about a range of word ministries in different contexts.
