Feedback from the West Coast


Good Afternoon from newhope‘s Ryan Norman! I’m stopping by this Friday with news from newhope fans on the Pacific Coast and their feedback after reading Preaching to Connect Truth to Life!

From the Pacific Southwest District of the Wesleyan Church, District Superintendent Dr. Steve Babby said:

“ Benji Kelley’s personal journey to develop as a preacher is inspirational and instructive for all pastors.  He outlines well the strength and weaknesses of various styles and then illustrates one style which can be effective in reaching the post-modern world.  This is a book that I will recommend to all of my pastors.”

Also from the Pacific Southwest District of the Wesleyan Church, Director of Church Multiplication and Leadership Development Dr. Phil Stevenson shared:

“Benji Kelly does an excellent job of connecting the historical moorings of preaching to the present challenge of contextualizing the gospel in the 21st Century. His emphasis on the narrative as a common thread to compliment other preaching styles provides a strong framework for effective communication. Any pastor or student desiring a foundation for their preaching will gain signficant value from reading this book.”

If you haven’t yet picked up your copy of Preaching to Connect Truth to Life, you can find one this weekend at any newhope campus or at WPH online.
