For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

in- And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not
heard- And how can they hear without someone preaching to
them- And how can they preach if they are not sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news?” (Romans 10: 14, 15)

I have had many courses, including college level on speaking, but this has been the most helpful and practical course I have ever had. Dilip and Ann have been superb in their instruction and I cannot thank them enough for their

The DISC behavior analysis helped me realize who I preach to and who I do not. Also, I believe that although I have not gotten comfortable preaching from a mind map, it has helped me to organize my sermon thoughts.
- Pastor Pat Bollinger
Thank you, Dilip! Your teaching, knowledge, and leadership have been most valuable to my preaching and leadership as pastor. Your humor and your presentation aided me in the subjects that we covered and helped me become a more powerful preacher.

teaches would be beneficial. I thoroughly enjoyed and
appreciated PWP and Dilip’s teachings. I found PWP
extremely beneficial. I wish I had had PWP much
earlier in my pastorate. PWP should be required for

One thing I forgot to put down on my course evaluation was how much I appreciated your opening devotion each week. I feel those devotions really set the mood and course for each week’s time together.
- Pastor David Walker
(The most important benefits I gained from this program): Learning to organize my thoughts; challenging my audience; practical, personal centering; catch phrases; mind mapping!!
- Rev. Jane Harrison
I loved preaching before, but now I really love researching, crafting, and presenting the message each week! Sermon prep and preaching has become one of my greatest joys!! Thank you so much!
- Pastor Judy Walker
Thank you for your sincere and spiritual approach to the entire course. It was obvious to me that you are not only a gifted communicator, but also a true believer in the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ.
- Rev. Bob Vizthum
Mind mapping was huge for me. Honestly though, I really appreciated the opportunity to hear my other colleagues speak. I learned so much from their strengths and weaknesses as well as their stories and preaching techniques. I also found the discussion on DISC helpful in that I knew that parishioners reacted differently to my sermons as I could usually guess how differently people would react but now I have a better understanding of why. That why is crucial for me.
I am so thankful that I had this opportunity. The information and experience was a huge blessing but the fellowship and camaraderie made the event transformational for me. That wasn’t just because of the people involved, but because of the leadership we had.
- Pastor Jim Copulos
(The important benefits I gained from this program were): Watching myself as I preach and speak; The honest, yet loving critiques and suggestions to improve my preaching and speaking; the honest and sincere encouragement of what strengths I displayed; the teachings on speaking to various people in the audience simultaneously; mind mapping; seeing and hearing others preach: learning from their creativity, strengths and skills; colleagues commenting on my preaching; staying on the initial topic and message … the SO WHAT?

I don’t know who, but someone during our classes wondered why this is not taught in the seminary. Would it be possible to approach the seminaries or through Conference …
