Here is one of the ways that we at Christ Fellowship Bible Church endeavor to equip, teach, and see men that God has gifted and called to teach & preach in various capacities.

It is called THE PREACHER'S FELLOWSHIP. There are men at CFBC that know God's Word, have been in pastoral ministry, desire to be in pastoral ministry, or have a heart for being a Godly leader. And one such element that that Scripture brings out is a leader should be equipped to teach God's Word. One way that this can evidence itself is through THE PREACHING of God's Word.

We plan to meet every other Saturday morning from about 8-9:30am at the church for a time of teaching, preaching, critiquing, and dialogue.

PURPOSE? This is to help you understand what is involved in preaching, how to prepare a sermon, and how to improve at the preaching of God's Word so that we can grow in our ability to teach & preach God's truth to God's people (2 Tim 4:2 - "preach ... be ready in season & out of season"). America & the Church needs more POWERFUL, FIERY, URGENT, BIBLICAL, and ENGAGING preachers!

FOR WHOM? This Preacher's Fellowship is for any man who aspires to know how to preach God's Word, construct a sermon, & actually preach & receive helpful encouragement & critique.

WHEN? The Preacher's Fellowship would meet every other Saturday morning from 8-9:30am (or earlier if you wish) so we are done & you can get home to be with your families for the day.

TYPICAL FORMAT:
8:00-8:20am    TEACHING on sermon prep, delivery, construction, etc.
8:20-8:40am    SERMON #1
8:40-9:00am    SERMON #2
9:00-9:30am    CRITIQUE & FEEDBACK on the two sermons that were preached.

WHAT IS REQUIRED? You would have the opportunity to prepare & preach a 20 minute sermon before the men (depending on how many men commit to this, you'd probably preach once a month). The benefits: you would be IN God's Word during the week, studying a given text, working through an outline, the intro, the conclusion, application, illustrations, etc. Then you would deliver it & we as your brothers would encourage you in what you did well & provide constructive criticism of the sermon as well.
