Doctorate of Ministry in Homiletics
Thesis: I contend that preaching can be a catalyst to transform laity into leaders in the church, community, and marketplace (job). If done intentionally the preacher and their message are able to encourage a person who once only attended worship to aspire and commit actions toward becoming a leader.
The Project: Preach a minimum of 9 sermons and provide an accompanying Bible study follow-up worksheet with each sermon. The sermons should be intentional in its style of delivery variance and content directed at laity transformation.
Dissertation Title: Sound Preaching For Shaky Bridges – Preaching that connects those excluded and the executive to leadership.
How to Highlights: Preachers should be aware of their body language, preach more grace in place of earning God’s favor through deeds, empower the handicapped (disabled & impaired), show connections between narratives of old and narratives now, and prove to each person that their struggle is neither the only or worse struggle in our “glocal” areas.
