The annual Preaching Workshop proposes that we allow the worlds envisioned in the essential biblical narratives to dramatically shape our preaching and lives. We believe that preaching reconstitutes biblical paradigms when it engages Scripture’s vision by representing what is absent and making present what is inaccessible to the end that followers of God will live into a God-shaped reality. Speakers at the 2014 conference include Charles L. Campbell, L. Randolph Lowry, Rhonda Lowry and John Mark Hicks.
Cost is $250 and is limited to 40 participants. To register or for more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Charles L. Campbell is Professor of Homiletics at Duke Divinity School. He also serves as Extraordinary Professor at Stellenbosch University in Stellenbosch, South Africa. An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Dr. Campbell has degrees from Hendrix College, Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, Yale Divinity School and Duke University.
Dr. Campbell’s work focuses on the biblical, theological and ethical dimensions of preaching. He is specifically interested in the Christological and apocalyptic aspects of preaching, the role of preaching in relation to the “principalities and powers” and contemporary homiletical theory.
Dr. Campbell grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. From 1982-1988 he served as pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Stuttgart, Arkansas. Before coming to Duke in 2009, he taught preaching for seventeen years at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia.
