Go Tell It IN The Mountains
The Lilly Endowment Compelling Preaching Initiative has provided
an exciting opportunity for 3 Pennsylvania Appalachian Lutheran synods
to turn dreams into action!
The Allegheny Synod, Northwestern PA Synod and the Upper Susquehanna Synod
are excited to be in partnership for this grant.
We anticipate impacting three important goal areas that will guide the key activities of our project:
1. Ordained and lay preachers will be equipped to utilize traditional and non-traditional techniques including different modes of delivery to develop skills and practices that will make the gospel message more compelling.
2. Aspiring preachers will be recruited and engaged in a variety of compelling preaching strategies that educate, empower, and support competency in their ministry.
3. Existing members of congregations and new community audiences within our 3 Lutheran partner synods will respond to compelling preaching opportunities and content by integrating the gospel message into their attitudes, actions and ministries in daily life.
