BREHM PREACHING – A LLOYD JOHN OGILVIE INITIATIVE
Where Worship, Preaching, and Justice Converge
The vision of Brehm Preaching—A Lloyd John Ogilvie Initiative—is to proclaim Jesus Christ and to catalyze a movement of empowered, wise preachers, who seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God, leading others to join God’s mission in the world.
Micah Groups and More
The Ogilvie Initiative, established in 2009, recognizes the great need that society has for preachers who can preach with passion and set out to equip and enable a brave, bold breed of preachers for the 21st century church.
Micah Groups is the primary program that brings this vision to life. Since 2011, more than 1300 preachers and church leaders around the world have joined this multiethnic, transdenominational movement of men and women leading the church to address pressing issues of justice while serving an ever more fragmented church.

Ogilvie Institute Book Series
The vision of the Ogilvie Institute of Preaching is to proclaim Jesus Christ and to catalyze a movement of empowered, wise preachers who seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God, leading others to join in God's mission in the world. The books in this series are selected to contribute to the development of such wise, humble, and justice-seeking preachers. The authors represent both scholars of preaching as well as pastors and preachers whose experiences and insights can contribute to passionate and excellent preaching.
The series, co-edited by Edgar "Trey" Clark, III and Jennifer Ackerman, engages a wide range of issues related to preaching, including but not limited to, preaching and culture, worship and liturgy, gender justice and preaching, racial justice and preaching, creation care and preaching, and spiritual formation and preaching. Ultimately, the books in this series are selected to contribute to the deep formation of ministry leaders who are engaged in preaching and worship efforts that bear witness to God’s mission of justice in the world.
