RTC Preaching Conference 2024

Preaching Colossians and the Supremacy of Christ

Every preacher’s greatest joy and foremost focus should be showing people the supremacy and sufficiency of Jesus Christ. That is exactly what Paul does in Colossians, and so it is wonderful book not only for displaying to us the riches of Christ but also helping us learn how to preach those riches to others.

Richard Condie, Anglican Bishop of Tasmania, together with RTC faculty, will open up the treasures of this short and timely epistle, and help us preach Christ-saturated sermons.

Join us at RTC’s 2024 Preaching Conference to spend two days basking in the glory of preaching Christ. The need for great confidence in Christ and for compelling preaching of his supremacy has never been greater.
