Exploring Preaching in the UCA
An online course for anyone
who wants to learn
how to Preach in the UCA.
Exploring Preaching in the UCA has been created around the Preaching Competencies from the “Assembly Standards and Competencies for the Formation and Education for the Specified Ministry of Lay Preacher”. So, those training for the ministry of Lay Preaching, and those needing to undertake training for the Preaching Competencies for Pastors (as these are the same), can be assured they are receiving training to help them meet these competencies.
However, Exploring Preaching in the UCA is also a great course for:
- people undertaking a Period of Discernment
- Lay Preachers looking for some continuing education.
Exploring Preaching in the UCA covers:
- where preaching ‘fits’ in Worship
- ethical preaching
- practical preaching skills
- planning to preach
Exploring Preaching in the UCA can be accessed online through your Presbytery. If you are interested, please talk with your Presbytery education person.
Internet not great at home? The course is also designed so that the base material can be downloaded and saved to your computer. Some Presbyteries are looking at developing or expanding learning hubs. So, you can learn together – and download your learning material to work on at home.
