Foundation of Christian Preaching

$45.00 $35.00

This course will introduce you to the basic biblical, historical, and spiritual foundations that undergird your preparation and delivery of the Christian message, whether as a preacher of the gospel, Bible teacher, or a Christian worker. Our brief examination of the history of preaching will introduce you to some of the classic preachers of history from early Christianity to the modern era. A definition of Christian proclamation will provide you with an understanding of what is involved in the task of delivering Christian message based upon biblical truth. An introduction to the Spiritual Foundation will cover the role of the Holy Spirit in preaching and teaching. We will present a brief study on the historical and doctrinal foundations of the Bible, The Word of God, and its unique and central place in your preaching.

Completion of this study should prepare you to begin your study of sermon and message construction, laying a better foundation for your subsequent study of sermon delivery.

  1. In beginning, read the syllabus for each course in full, marking the name and author of the textbook.
  2. Purchase the textbook and begin reading. Faithfully follow and complete the reading assignments as the beginning of each lecture presentation. (Textbooks are not provided by CoursesUsee, however we recommend the purchase of used books where available. Most online agencies offer these at reduced prices.)
  3. Take your time proceeding in the viewing of lectures, taking notes where material appears helpful for future use. You can print the PowerPoint Lectures in outline format but make sure to click on the “Print Outline” button, not the cell button which will print full pages for each cell. You can also highlight the left column in outline format and paste on MS Word to print.
  4. At the end of the lecture presentation is an assignment for the user to complete. We recommend completion of this, which gives immediate application of some of the material and helps achieve maximum benefits in learning.
  5. Ministry and Preaching Courses are listed in sequential order. We recommend following this order since some of the material assumes a knowledge that may have been gained in a previous presentation.
  6. We recommend printing the lectures for the purpose of keeping the lecture materials in a file or notebook, as well as note-taking as mentioned in #3.
  7. You may use the Bible Course materials in your own ministry, Sunday School class, Small Group Bible Study or however it benefits Kingdom Ministry.
