Expository Preaching

Designed to equip pastors and other church leaders in the skills of sermon preparation and public exposition of the Scriptures, the Doctor of Ministry in Expository Preaching is founded upon the belief that the health of the local church is grounded in the preaching of the Word of God.

Do you find some types of texts easier to preach than others? Are all your sermons starting to sound the same? Are you afraid that your congregation is not really benefiting from your preaching? If preaching is your calling, yet you still have unanswered questions or you just want to improve your skills, this degree is for you.
