Need a creativity boost to your preaching? Struggling to know how to address difficult topics in your context? Need a fresh approach to reinvigorate your preaching voice or need to reclaim the basics?  We hope that you will join us virtually for the preaching academy on Feb. 22-24, 2021 hosted by the Missouri Conference Board of Ordained Ministry and The Missouri United Methodist Foundation.

The academy will give you the opportunity to brush up on your preaching basics, learn new techniques to preach on financial stewardship and give you tips to preach on difficult topics such as racism. You will also have an opportunity to meet in peer learning groups and generate ideas for sermon preparation and stewardship series.
