Event description
Join us for an interactive two-day learning experience all about preaching with Jesus at the centre.

About this Event

Together, we’ll participate in plenary sessions focused on the character of the preacher, why Jesus-centred preaching matters, and how to preach to post-Christian people.

The experience also includes 'choose-your-own-adventure' style workshops that will help us engage with specific topics, ask questions, and practically apply what we’re learning. Participants can choose two out of the five scheduled workshops, but don’t worry — you’ll get access to the content from all of the workshops afterwards as part of the experience.

During the sessions and workshops, we’ll be hearing from experienced preachers including Mark Scandrette, Bruxy Cavey, Leanne Friesen, Shannon Polk, Brian Ross, Jeremy Duncan, Annette Brownlee and more amazing Jesus-centred leaders.

Heads up: we're limiting registration to 130 people, so sign up today!

Here's a breakdown of the main sessions and workshops. (Registrants will have the opportunity to sign up for two preferred workshops early in the new year.)

Main Sessions:

The Character of the Preacher with Leanne Friesen

Jesus-Centred Preaching that Equips People to Live Like Jesus with Mark Scandrette

Preaching to Post-Christian Cultures with Brian Ross


Workshop A: Preaching that Facilitates Racial and Cultural Diversity

with Shannon Polk

Learn how preaching has the power to move a church toward greater inclusion of racial, economic, and cultural diversity to better reflect diverse communities and the Kingdom of God.

Workshop B: Preaching Prep: 6 Steps for Turning Research Into a Transformational Sermon

with Annette Brownlee

New to preaching or just looking for a brush up? This workshop will equip you with practical ways to prepare a transformational, Jesus-centred sermon.

Workshop C: Preaching to Gen Z and Young Millennials

with Jeremy Duncan

The most unchurched generation in modern history is Gen Z. What do you need to know about preaching that can help you better connect these younger generations to Jesus?

Workshop D: Preaching to Secular-Minded People

with Brian Ross

Many cultures in North America and Europe are now 2-3 generations removed from any Christian witness. What should we be doing in our preaching to ensure we’re connecting with educated, secular-minded people who need us to translate the Gospel into their language and value systems?

Workshop E: Preaching that Transforms Churchianity into Jesus Centricity

with Bruxy Cavey

The message of Jesus is scandalous and powerful, but it often gets watered down by religiosity. Learn how preaching can help move a bounded-set congregation beyond mere beliefs about Jesus to practices of following Jesus at the centre of their lives.
