If you are committed to the ministry of biblical preaching in New Zealand please read on...
As I shift into a role with Langham Preaching and devote myself to helping nurture biblical preaching movements in the countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, I have been reminded of how helping to facilitate such a movement here in New Zealand has been a dream of mine for two decades. With us being based in NZ for a few years this seems a good time to give it a crack.
So Langham Partnership New Zealand is sponsoring a forum on April 18th which we've called Towards a Kiwi-made Preaching. More than 25 experienced and emerging preachers will provoke us with questions from their own wrestling with preaching in this NZ context. We are so grateful for the commitment of people like Mark Strom (Laidlaw), Murray Robertson (Spreydon Baptist), Lynne Baab (University of Otago), Nigel Pollock (TSCF), and Bishop Winston Halapua (Anglican). But there are a whole bunch of up-and-comers as well. It will be a fabulous and unashamed talkfest. Then at the end of the day there will be an optional session where we will ask 'what is the Spirit saying?' about some sort of ongoing focus on preaching in NZ.
Please register with Alyssa (firstname.lastname@example.org) and as soon as we have the Questions finalised we will circulate them to those registered, enabling them to make their selections from the smorgasbord.
(very) nice chatting
