  • The Feminine Art of Preaching (Dr. Kimberly Majeski)
  • Preaching in the African American Context (Dr. James Morehead)
  • Building Reconciling Communities Through Preaching (Panel discussion)

"Twenty years ago, I attended a preaching clinic that changed the course of my ministry," said Dr. Guy Brewer. "Yes, I was too busy to attend, but people who believed in me insisted that I go for refreshment and encouragement. They were right. I found renewed energy and a supportive community of preachers at that clinic. My participation in this preaching clinic is my way of paying it forward to the women and men who are pouring out their lives in the pulpit every Sunday."
