Last Spring was the first year for KERYGMA. I did not know how many would attend. Space was limited to sixty-five and the room was nearly full. This year, we will have more room at the Memorial Church of Christ and opportunities to invite more friends. Adjustments have been made to the schedule adding a half a day with more time for connecting and conversation. I am grateful for the spirit of the conference and the focus on effective proclamation of the gospel.

For the Greeks, kerygma was the word used for the content of a proclamation. For disciples of Jesus, kerygma is the core message of God’s salvation history being fulfilled in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Rooted in 1 Corinthians 2:2-5, this conference explores various aspects of the preaching life in proclaiming the content and life of faith in Jesus Christ.

I am excited about our the program this year and how God will use each person to encourage and equip us more fully in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ So, mark your calendar now for KERYGMA 2018!
