Today I’m headed to Jackson, MS to join the faculty, staff and students at Reformed Theological Seminary to deliver the John Reed Miller lectures on preaching. I praise God for RTS and for the folks laboring to be faithful to God’s word as they train future pastors, missionaries, and professors for the Lord. It’s an honor be be invited, especially when there are so many more qualified and seasoned preachers they could have asked.
With God’s help, we’ll consider three topics under the theme “Faithful Preaching in a Corinthian Age”:
1. What Preaching Is
2. What Must be Resolved
3. What Must Not Be Preached
While I’m there I hope to catch up with a number of brothers and fellow laborers, including Reddit Andrews, Lig’ Duncan, Jemar Tisby, Phillip Holmes, and a number of students. If you’re thinking about seminary possibilities, you might want to consider RTS. With campuses in Jackson, MS, Orlando, Charlotte, Washington, D.C., Houston and Memphis, and with an impressive distance learning strategy, RTS must certainly be among the most convenient study opportunities around. And if you’re an African American, you’ll definitely want to look into their African American Leadership Initiative.
If you’re in the Jackson area, I hope you’ll consider joining us for part or all of the lectures. And wherever you are, I hope you’ll pray for our time together thinking about proclaiming Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
