One of the best known fixtures of any church today is the “preacher.” He (or she!) often has a special education, special attire, special titles, special authority, and special tasks. Probably most think that is the way it is supposed to be. But is it? The Apostle Paul in Romans 10:14-15 said that people can believe when they hear, and they can hear if they have a preacher. What were these first preachers like? Would we recognize them today? Would preachers of today have been recognized “back then?” This is a 9 message study we are making together of “Preaching: Messenger, Message, and Method.”
