Preaching Holiness online and face to face

I hosted the first NTSx open online course on Preaching Holiness in a Pluralistic Society as a pre-conference class based on resources from The Preacher’s Magazine. 

While the online class did not formally meet the criteria for a “MOOC” (MASSIVE open online class) we had 70 people register and ten complete the course (actually a better completion statistic than most MOOC classes). I was deeply appreciative of the solid commitment of the pastors who took the class. online. The course included podcasts, written sermons, as well as “student” reflection over holiness, preaching, and even sermons created by the course participants.

The conference itself was equally awesome! I am including a video overview Grace & Peace Magazine. Hopefully we will offer the online course again in the future and combine the best of both the print and video resources on hand!
