Sermon Presentation and Delivery
July 10, 2021 Dr. Hampton Drum
Course Description: In this course students study various approaches to sermon development and delivery. One of the preacher’s most important jobs is to allow the Bible to speak with clear understanding. Developing a delivery style that aids comprehension and increases understand should always be the goal of the effective pastor. The preacher must determine what the Bible is saying; and then deliver a sermon that is both, true to the text, and relevant to the listener. Realizing that the Bible is multifaceted, it needs to be analyzed with depth and precision. The objective of this course is to aid the preacher in determining the effective us of each element of the sermon.
From the introduction right through to the conclusion, the preacher will develop a delivery that will make each point standout from the Scripture. To aid the pastor in moving from panic to productivity in their sermon delivery, giving more time for development and effective delivery.
