EMPOWERproclaim is an advanced class designed to teach women to preach the Word of God using the expository and narrative models of preaching. This course is designed to develop, equip, and empower a generation of women who would discover and embrace their God-given voice, and to carry the truth of Scripture in a transformational way. Whether the venue is the church, workplace, boardroom, school, home, or neighborhood, each woman has been given a place, a platform, or a pulpit to proclaim God’s truth. The goal is to unleash the prophetic and missional voice to break into darkness and offer hope and salvation to a broken world.
Women can expect:
- To grow and develop the ability to communicate the truth of God’s Word in a transformational way.
- To receive instruction on the components, preparation and preaching of sermons.
- To deliver two 15-minute expository sermons and two 15-minute narrative sermons in front of a group of coaches and students. Students at each site will preach in person, while live stream students will preach on Zoom.
- To participate in a community of feedback to receive one-on-one coaching in a structured and safe environment.
- Selected women may be asked to give testimonies at retreat, visit classes, and other gatherings.
