We are thrilled to announce that we are bringing in world-renown Old Testament Scholar Tremper Longman for our Area Sermon Prep this year. He will be leading us through the book of Esther. Tremper will also be teaching us how to preach Jesus from the Old Testament and will be answering questions in the last session about your favorite Old Testament controversies.

Cost for the event is $20 per person. Your registration fee includes lunch on site at the event in downtown Bellevue.

Register before June 30th and receive 15% off.

This is a wonderful event designed to help ministers of the gospel in the greater Seattle area faithfully and fruitfully preach the book of Esther. Everyone is welcome including missional community leaders, Sunday school teachers, elders, lead pastors, staff, and anyone who loves the Old Testament and desires to better understand the book of Esther.

After the Area Sermon Prep day with Dr. Longman, local pastors will be working together to create a joint sermon series through Esther. The sermon series will come with discussion guides, sermon outlines, and graphics which we will make available to the region for anyone who wants to use it.
