Sep 8/9.


2021’s conference is SOLD OUT.

Calling emerging teachers: we’ve been dreaming about this for a while and are happy to announce we are doing a two day practicum on all things teaching/speaking related. The 2 days will include homiletics, how to craft a sermon, best practices for study and research, emotional and spiritual dynamics, the triad of cultural commentary, biblical theology, and spiritual formation in a sermon, and how to teach not just for information and inspiration, but in the direction of transformation. Not to mention some good coffee and food trucks tossed in for good measure as well. Join us!


The Art of Teaching Conference.

Portland, OR – September 8/9 2021

A 2 day practicuum unpacking all things teaching and preaching related. Limited spots available!

Join the waiting list!

Most teachers and pastors want to preach and teach in a way that is compelling and powerful. But are they actually? That’s what this weekend is for.


The truth is most messages and content people are hearing from culture is powerful, compelling, moving, and alluring. But when we stand up and open up the scriptures it isn’t. But don’t we have the greatest story ever told? A collection of texts spanning thousands of years that have started revolutions, shaped entire societies, and turned the world upside down?

There is a better way.

And that’s where these two days come in. We will pull back the curtain and give you everything we’ve got. Sharing everything from technical sermon crafting to showing how to teach not just for information, but spiritual formation.

You can do this. We can do this. See you soon!

Limited spots available.
