Christine Burkett is a speech-pathologist by trade and a pew sitter by profession. She teaches guides and coaches young preachers on this art form they have been called by God to do. She has incredible insights into language, crafting sermons and how to make them stick. She has taught at Duke Divinity School for over 20 years, helps lead the Institute of Preaching, and is a sought-after speaker for preachers. She is one of the teachers and professors whose voice is still in my head as I write, preach and lead worship.
