Integrating Media and Arts in Preaching

June 3-28, 2024

Taught by Keith Loy

The local church is the hope of the world, and those that have been called to be the hands and feet of Jesus have incredible resources to reach God’s people through movies and a plethora of other media.

In this course, we will explore the power that movies and media have to show God’s love to a broken world. As a pastoral ambassador for Kingdom Story Company, Pastor Keith Loy will speak with movie industry leaders such as Kevin Downes, John Erwin, and Andy Erwin to share how God is using the movie industry to reach thousands for the Kingdom.

By the end of this course, you will discover new and innovative ways to incorporate media, more specifically movies, into the DNA of your preaching (or other communication) and continue reaching thousands more for the Kingdom!
