Tiger's Interview with Joel Gregory

Kevin Gibson, Associate Pastor of Music and Senior Adults at First Baptist Church in North Kansas City, shared a link to the latest episode at with me. It is an interview with Dr. Joel Gregory on the subject of preaching.

In this episode, Pastor Tiger Pennington (Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church of North Kansas City) interviews Dr. Joel Gregory on the subject of preaching. A sampling of topics discussed in this podcast are: the role of preaching in worship, sources for illustrations, preaching in a media-saturated culture, and the interaction of the biblical text with politics. Dr. Gregory is the Preaching Professor at Truett Theological Seminary of Baylor University and was appointed Distinguished Fellow by Georgetown College, Kentucky, in 2004. He is also the founder and president of Joel Gregory Ministries, a non-profit organization supporting a preaching, teaching, counseling, and writing ministry.

I thought the podcast interview was helpful. I believe Joel Gregory is one of the great preachers of our day. His message at the New Baptist Convenant meeting in Atlanta regarding our need to "welcome the stranger" was powerful. If you have not heard it, I encourage you to listen to it at the New Baptist Covenant site.

The total length of the worship interview with Dr. Gregory is 19:59. I encourage you to check it out at
