Mercer Preaching Consultation 2011
September 25-27, 2011
The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort
St. Simon’s Island, GA
Co-Sponsored by
James and Carolyn McAfee School of Theology and
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Georgia

Featured Speaker: Dr. Brett Younger
Associate Professor of Preaching, McAfee School of Theology
Theme: “Preaching to Christ’s Church” 

Brett Younger is the Associate Professor of Preaching at the McAfee School of Theology at Mercer University in Atlanta.  He teaches introductory and advanced courses in preaching as well as classes in writing and spiritual formation. 

Before coming to McAfee, Dr. Younger served as a pastor for twenty-two years in Texas, Kansas, and Indiana, most recently at the Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth. 

He is the author of the not nearly popular enough Who Moved My Pulpit?  He and his wife Carol co-authored Mark:  Finding Ourselves in the Story, and Living with Stress:  Nurturing Joy in a Tension-filled World.  Brett writes a monthly column, “The Lighter Side,” for Baptists Today and half of the Formations Commentary.  He has written numerous articles and sermons that have appeared in a variety of journals and periodicals that not many people read.  He has a blog, Peculiar Preacher, that needs better graphics.  

He received his B.A. in religion from Baylor University, and his M.Div. and Ph.D. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Brett and Carol (also a graduate of Baylor and Southern) have two sons, Graham, a first year student at the University of Georgia Law School and Caleb, a senior at Parkview High School.
