Welcome to Extemporaneous Preaching - a website dedicated to the art of preaching freely in the extemporaneous mode.


My goal for this website will be to provide a place where insights and discoveries in the area of extemporaneous preaching can be shared. As I come upon articles and information I will post them on this web site. Twenty years ago I developed a system for preaching freely called Process Preaching. For the past 15 years I have taught this system in the Kairos program of continuing education at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN and at Spirit in the Desert retreat center in Carefree, AZ. Six years ago I published a book describing this system entItled, SPEAKING THE WORD FREELY - WRITING WITH PURPOSE, PREACHING WITH POWER. In the future the title of the course both at Luther and at Spirit in the Desert will be, "SPEAKING THE WORD FREELY." There is a link on this page listing the upcoming seminars. The page called Extemp Extras is my attempt at a blog where I will post new discoveries or things I have learned on the subject of extemporaneous preaching. I hope that you will enjoy and benefit from the articles found by following the links on this web site home page. Please return often for updates.
