Preaching and the Shaping of a Church Into Mission: Theology On Mission Podcast

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


In an image driven culture, why do we still have sermons? What good can a Sunday sermon have when everyone is bombarded by other messages all week long? What is preaching for anyway?Here Holsclaw and me talk about preaching as proclamation (different than teaching) and how the “imagination” is essential for it transforming people toward Christ-likeness.

We’ll be fleshing all this out in depth at this years Missional Learning Commons on “The Mission of Preaching”, Nov. 6-7, Chicago, IL.

Topics and Presenters will be:

PREACHING: Proclaiming or Teaching, or…? ~ David Fitch
POUR OVER SERMONS: Brewing in the Spirit ~ Tara Beth Leach
RESURRECTION IMAGINATION: Good News in the Religious Marketplace ~ Matt Tebbe

  1. With a revelation that calls specifically for every believer to be a preacher, a proclaimer, one who speaks the truth in love, to practice 58 one another instructions, why does the majority form of church demand it’s main gathering to be dominated by a sermon, one-way communication, strict lecture, with zero participation from anyone else, 52 weeks a year? Why? I asked this question on the preachingtoday.com blog. The host answered, It’s all throughout the OT and NT. I asked him to give me one specfic one I could interact with him on. He gave no reply. Is there even one that calls for this rigid elitist format? Everyone that is proposed to me as the proof text says nothing of the sort. What specific revelation am I missing? Does "preach the word in season…" really mean lecture the word by only one man for the whole time with zero reproduction of articulating truth to any other believer even after hearing 1000 lectures?
