The Lipscomb University Hazelip School of Theology is excited to host its annual Preaching Workshop, February 11-12. An interactive event, the two days will focus on the craft of homiletics, fellowship, mentored experience, and rich dialogue. This year’s theme, “Preaching at the Crossroads: Rediscovering Gospel in the New World” will introduce discussion on the importance of preaching, examples of the gospel at work, and what it looks like to live and speak prophetically in modern context.

Featured presenters include Dr. Miroslav Volf and Mason Lee. Volf is the founder and director of Yale Center for Faith and Culture and Henry B. Wright professor of Theology at Yale University Divinity School in New Haven, Connecticut. Lee is a PhD Candidate in Homiletics and Practical Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary where he helps to teach the Introduction to Preaching courses each semester.

Also presenting are Dr. Kate Watkins, Dr. Richard Goode, Rabbis Flip and Laurie Rice, Darren Hagood, and Josh Jackson. As part of the workshop, The Tokens Show will be hosted by Lee Camp.

The event is traditionally invite-only, designed specifically for vocational preachers. However, this year the evening sessions with Dr. Miroslav Volf and the Tokens show are open to the public.

The workshop will be from 2:00 p.m. on Monday, February 11 until after the tokens show on Tuesday, February 12. Cost includes four meals and admission to the Tokens show for $125. For financial assistance, contact Mallory Wyckoff at mallory.wyckoff@gmail.com.
