The purpose of this project was to offer a new approach from the field of homiletics to the ministry of pastors in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brazil – IELB. The goal was to help a small group of seven pastors of Distrito Vale do Rio do Sinos, in South Brazil, to integrate a more narrative style of preaching into their ministry. The chief component of this project was to offer a workshop on narrative preaching to this group of pastors and to see how effective the workshop could be in helping them integrate the theory and practice of narrative preaching. To verify the impact the workshop had on the pastors, questionnaires, study of written sermons, and written evaluations were conducted. Based on the gathered data, the researcher was able to verify that the workshop had a positive impact on the pastors’ preaching; they were not only able to learn the new technique but also to integrate the narrative style of preaching into their ministry. On the basis of this study the researcher offers suggestions and ideas for the use of this workshop in narrative preaching in the ministry of IELB in the future.
