The Rev. Dr. James Forbes Jr., is traveling the country, conveying God's message that we can end hunger. He is leading homiletics workshops for ministers, pastors, and others who also preach. Participants will leave with helpful tools and techniques for preaching, as well as a renewed call to engage our congregations to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.
Rev. Forbes is senior minister emeritus of the Riverside Church in New York City and president of the Healing of the Nations Foundation. Before being called to Riverside's pulpit, Forbes spent 15 years as a professor of preaching at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. Because of his extensive career and his charismatic style, Forbes is often introduced as the preacher's preacher. In 1996, Newsweek recognized him as one of the 12 "most effective preachers."
