    Center for Preaching

Located in the McInteer Bible and World Missions building, the Center for Preaching exists to inspire and equip the next generation of Christian preachers as well as to offer resources and encouragement to those already in the field. The center is directed by Dr. Devin Swindle, associate professor of Bible and preaching.

“Our passion in the Center for Preaching is not just to continue a legacy, but to build it into the future by calling and equipping God's servants for the ministry of his Word.” —Dr. Devin Swindle

Majors

B.A. in Bible and preaching: This degree prepares students to preach in a congregational setting through 69 credit hours of core classes, 42 credit hours of liberal arts and 17 credit hours of electives.

Learning opportunities outside the classroom

Preaching students deliver sermons in the Robert K. Oglesby Preaching Studio, a state-of-the-art facility in the McInteer where student sermons can be recorded and shared digitally for review and critique.


The Neller Workshop is a daylong intensive seminar for preachers. Attendees receive instruction in the Biblical text, and insights for revitalizing their preaching. The workshop is held in conjunction with the Harding University Lectureship each fall.


The Kerusso Experience is typically a week-long preacher training camp for ninth to twelfth grade boys. Students spend the week on Harding's campus learning Bible study methods and sermon preparation and delivery from faculty, students, and friends. More importantly, perhaps, is that they learn that they, too, can serve the LORD in a lifetime of ministry.

We seek nothing more than to serve the LORD and his church through this endeavor. We solicit your prayers and your partnership as we aspire to raise up a new generation of kingdom servants.

If you wish to make a financial donation, you may do so through Harding University's Lectureship office: Help Support Kerusso.


The Preachers Conference at Harding University is a daylong intensive seminar for preachers. Attendees receive instruction in the Biblical text, and insights for revitalizing their preaching. The workshop is usually held on the 2nd or 3rd Tuesday in February.
