27th Annual Sermon Seminar a Success

The Austin Graduate School of Theology hosted 100 church leaders from around the country for its 27th Annual Sermon Seminar May 19-22.

The seminar provided in-depth study of the scripture along with practical suggestions on how to teach and preach the text.

“The Sermon Seminar is the best seminar I have attended in helping me to preach the Word of God,” said Chris Vidacovich of Kilgore, Texas. “The speakers are outstanding scholars who share their knowledge in practical and applicable ways. It also gives me the opportunity to spend time with other ministers of the Gospel as we share ideas together. I will use the information and knowledge I gained for years to come.”

This was the first year the seminar was held in the school’s new facility which was designed with the seminar in mind. The seminar utilized two large rooms in the 27,000 sq ft facility; one for lecture program and the other for breakfast and lunch programs.

This year’s sessions covered how to preach from Hebrews, Galatians, Amos, and Genesis 12-50. The speakers were Dwight Robarts of the Skillman Ave Church of Christ in Dallas, Dr. Jeffery Peterson of Austin Graduate School of Theology, Dr. Mark Hamilton of Abilene Christian University, and Dr. Rick Marrs of Pepperdine, respectively. Special lunch presentations were made by Eddie Sharp of the University Church in Abilene. CD’s of the sessions can be ordered by visiting

Next year’s seminar will be held May 18-21, 2009. Speakers will include Ben Witherington III, Harold Shank, and Stan Reid.
