Preachers are asked to be writers, actors/performance artists, composers, dancers, painters, and sculptors all at one time, yet they are rarely given the tools they need to make good on these expectations. What if preachers thought of themselves as creative artists who employ many artistic disciplines to craft and deliver their sermons? This course is open to beginning, intermediate, and advanced preachers who would like to draw both their preparation and execution from the right sides of their brains.

This course is open to masters-level students only, and enrollment will be limited to 12 students. This course is designed to be taken for full academic credit. Auditors who are willing to participate fully may register only with the permission of the instructor.
