Welcome Guest Preachers


We welcome as preachers this Sunday two participants in “Jesus Amidst the Mosques: Christian Witness, Muslim Contexts”.

The Rev. Dr. Titus Presler is preacher at our 8:00 service. Dr. Presler’s ministry commitments in pastoring, leading and teaching have been exercised in diverse congregations in the Episcopal Church and abroad and in several seminaries where church leaders are formed. As a scholar, Presler specializes in mission theology and the interaction of gospel and culture, the latter with special reference to Africa. Dr. Presler was Rector of the Bonda Church District in the Diocese of Manicaland, Zimbabwe, which included a preaching ministry in the Shona language. For more information about Dr. Presler’s extensive and I would say fascinating career, please go to http://tituspresler.com/about.html.
