Randal Pelton is the Senior Pastor of Calvary Bible Church in Mount Joy, PA. He teaches preaching to graduate students in Lancaster Bible College's graduate school and doctoral students in Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary's Doctor of Ministry program (Preaching the Literary Forms of the Bible and From the Study to the Pulpit tracks). Randal is the author of A Preacher's Manifesto and Preaching With Accuracy (forthcoming from Kregel in June 2014). He enjoys weightlifting and fitness, shooting a longbow, and playing the cello. Randal's research interests are hermeneutics and Old Testament interpretation.
A Preacher's Manifesto presents ten commitments that should drive biblical preaching. These ten commitments will guide pastors in creating their preaching calendar, help steer their sermon preparation, and remind them of the vital place preaching occupies in the local church. The commitments include topics ranging from pastoral theology, hermeneutics, and pastoral ministry.
