  3. To offer preachers a chance to preach a sermon and receive supportive feedback from peers
  4. To offer preachers a chance to brainstorm about upcoming sermons for the fall,
  5. To offer preachers a chance to ask questions, raise issues, and share experiences about all aspects of preaching
  6. To offer time and space for other things related to preaching and to the larger work of the church
