Preaching, Faith & Deconstruction – Dominic Done

By September 15, 2021No Comments

Dominic Done speaks with Mike Neglia about what pastors and preachers should know about the current deconstruction movement amongst young evangelicals. Why are so many thoughtful young people leaving the faith, or reshaping it into a more culturally palatable form? How can preachers deliver sermons that address the important and potentially divisive issues that are important to people today? Dominic speaks from his experience as a pastor in Portland Oregon and as a student in Oxford (and as a wrestler with doubt of his own over the years) to give practical advice to preachers speaking into the current milieu of doubt, ex-vangelicals, and skepticism. Also – how open should a preacher be about their own doubts?

Additionally Dominic has wisdom to share regarding planning sermons 3 weeks in advance, openness to the Holy Spirit and intentionality in communication style.

Dominic will be a panelist and speaker at our upcoming training event in Colorado Springs, Colorado September 17 & 18th.Registration and more details
