The Chief End of Preaching

Greg Strand – March 27, 2013 Leave a comment

“What is the chief end of preaching?  I like to think it is this.  It is to give men and women a sense of God and His presence.”

Raymond Lanning, “The Doctor: Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones,” in More Than Conquerors, ed. John Woodbridge (Chicago: Moody 1992), 209.

Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
