As Director of Lay servant ministries training I have heard again and again of the desire to learn more about how to preach. Many have heard the call to fill the pulpit but feel lacking in the skills to deliver a sermon.
The Equip class taught by Rev. Dr. Sonja Tobey is an excellent resource to learn the art of preaching. I did not realize the many facets involved in preaching a sermon. Rev. Tobey uses her gift of teaching and love of preaching to give the student practical ways to orchestrate a sermon.
I highly recommend this Equip class to anyone desiring to become more effective in preaching. – Rev. Toni Hignight, Pastor, Kingston United Methodist Church, Kingston, Oklahoma (former District Lay Servant Director)
