The Art and Craft of Engaged Preaching

The Art and Craft of Engaged Preaching

Description

Joyce Rees, Lead Pastor at Epic Vineyard Church will be the guest speaker.

In an era of profound story telling, preaching can seem culturally obsolete. The strength of great preaching goes beyond exegesis. To be effective, story-telling is essential. In fact, in the business world story-telling is touted as the premier communication skill. This course will teach both the art and craft of engaged preaching by tying biblical text to story, and vice-versa.

Lunch is included in the workshop. Let us know if you have any dietary concerns.

Don't live in Calgary but want to participate? This workshop is available by livestream (click on Tickets for more info).

This workshop can also be taken for 1-credit ($420). To register for 1-credit course contact registrar@ambrose.edu

Let's Talk Money

Let's Talk Money

  • Calgary First Church of the Nazarene (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In a world where money is power and excess is desired, we look at those who seemingly have it all with measures of adoration and envy. Jesus Himself spoke more about money than about love in his lifetime. Money is captivating, and its significance is undeniable.

Why was money so important for Jesus to speak about? How does it relate with our hopes, desires, and dreams? How does our relationship with money affect our relationship as a community and more importantly, how does it affect our relationship with God? What should we do with money?

What is money?

Come join us for a few hours as we explore the concept of finances through a Jesus-centered and biblical lens, covering both good stewardship and practical financial knowledge. The presentation is based on scripture, our team's past 14 years of experience in financial ministry, and testimonies from our struggles and walk with God in this area. We will have time for Q&A along with the opportunity to pray together as a church and for individuals.

Here is a preliminary agenda subject to changes.

10:00 - 10:10 - Initial Pastor's Welcome
10:10 - 10:40 - Testimonies and Introduction to Biblical Financial Principles
10:40 - 11:20 - Financial Session 1 - Practical Application
11:20 - 11:30 - Coffee Break
11:30 - 12:10 - Financial Session 2 - Practical Application
12:10 - 12:30 - Summary and Wrap-Up
12:30 - 12:45 - Q&A along with Lunch (Lunch is provided!)
12:45 - 13:30 - Roundtable Discussions

Speakers:

  • Matthew Wan, CFP

  • Byron Wong, PFP

  • Ivan Wong, P. Eng.
