PREACHING & MINISTRY (1st SEMESTER)
There is no more effective church-planting strategy than gospel proclamation. NETS develops each resident’s preaching skills from the moment they arrive. In conjunction with the Hermeneutics & Theology Track, men grow in analyzing scripture, preaching to the affections, and applying each text to real life. They synthesize books of the Bible, prepare preaching series, and coordinate those series with other preachers. There’s coaching and feedback from sermon prep through delivery. And at weekly meetings, residents critique sermons and learn from the critiques of others.
Couples also dive into ministry. Throughout the residency, you’ll serve in a variety of roles, as leaders and assistants, nursery workers and partners in counseling. Together, you’ll grow as servant-leaders, gospel counselors and soul physicians.
