See you in Toronto, Sunday, October 27th to Tuesday, October 29th.

Two and a half days of keynotes, workshops, private and public preaching events, sharing meals, networking, and fellowship.

We’re in the process of assembling a selection of stellar keynote leaders for 2024, starting with Lennett AndersonCraig Barnes and Paula Gooder. We’re also putting the finishing touches on bringing you the wide variety of outstanding workshop leaders, presentation topics and special events you’ve come to expect from LRPF. And, of course, there’s Fine-Tuned Preaching. Extraordinary sessions led by exceptional preachers, offering inspiration, guidance and support in a small group setting.

Preaching In The New Creation

The current state of our world reminds us that we are still in the old creation and “subjected to futility” (Romans 8:20). On the other hand, Jesus ushers in a new kingdom saying, “I am making all things new” (Revelation 21:5). If true, what difference does it make to preaching? The new creation is not just future. Believers are themselves already “a new creation” (1 Corinthians 5:17). In Christ we have a new covenant (Hebrews 8:8-13), a new law, a new freedom, a new relationship with God, a new start, a new community, and new “good news”. We live in a new age, are promised new bodies (Romans 8:19-20) and “new heavens and a new earth” (Is. 65:17; 66:22). Our theme, ‘Preaching in the New Creation,’ has two meanings: we ‘preach-in’ the new creation by proclaiming it, and we preach amid signs of the new creation in the world. It is both present and still coming.

The Lester Randall Preaching Fellowship for 2024 focuses on new beginnings offered in the new creation. God is at work, in part to renew preaching. Our excellent speakers will address a range of related topics. Together we will rediscover the new creation that God speaks into existence: “so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11.)

Preachers, together, “at the feet” of proven leaders, seeing the magic, sharpening the skills, reclaiming the calling. It is a challenging road these days, but the artistry is real and the gift is waiting to bless. Attending this gathering is one of a preacher’s life’s faith-essentials!” – Rev. Dr. Malcolm Sinclair
