A seminary-level preaching class – co-taught by two local pastors – is coming to Madison beginning this January. The class is being offered by the Madison Learning Community (MLC), an initiative of the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary.
Beginning with this class, Proclaiming the Word of God, MLC will be offering one seminary-level course each semester to Madison-area pastors, church leaders, and others eager to deepen ministry skills. The faculty for this first preaching course will be Rev. Dr. Marcus Allen, pastor at Mount Zion Baptist Church, and Rev. Dr. Jessica Patchett, pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church.
Both new and seasoned church leaders are invited to this class, aimed at helping them learn how to preach with faithfulness and clarity. In addition to the Tuesday night in-person gatherings there will be additional video lectures.
An informational meeting (with dessert) will be held Thursday, December 1, 7-8pm, at the Collaboration Project’s Ministry Co-Working Space at 6506 Schroeder Road. Interested persons can RSVP here
and may also contact Lief Erickson for more information at email@example.com or 608/469-2261.
This class is a new addition to the opportunities for advanced theological studies in Madison. The University of Wisconsin has a Religious Studies Certificate program, Edgewood College has a Religious Studies department, and Madison’s City Church offers an Associate of Arts degree in Biblical Studies through Christian Life College.
