David A. Busic, DD, president of Nazarene Theological Seminary, will present “Preaching in a Pluralistic World,” at MNU’s Conference for Pastors and Church Leaders March 12. The series of sessions will address issues common to church leaders today. Busic will also speak in MNU’s Community Chapel at 9:30 a.m. at College Church of the Nazarene, 2020 E. Sheridan, Olathe, Kan. The chapel service is open to the public.

Busic recently became president at NTS, a graduate school of theology in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition educating women and men for ministry, located in Kansas City, Mo. Busic previously served in three churches as senior pastor in Livermore, Calif., Lenexa, Kan., and Oklahoma City. During his tenure there, Busic helped initiate and establish the Swaziland Partnership to help reduce the HIV/AIDS rate and to assist vulnerable children in Swaziland, Africa.

Busic has published numerous articles and co-authored two books, A Pastor’s Guide to Effective Preaching and Sharing My Faith. He was co-editor of Preacher’s Magazine: A Preaching Resource in the Wesleyan Tradition from 2000 to 2007. His most recent book, Perfectly Imperfect: Character Sketches from the Old Testament, is scheduled to be released later this spring.

Busic and his wife, Christi, currently reside in Kansas City, Mo. They have three grown children, Megan, Ben, and Madison. Read his blog at: http://www.nts.edu/presidents-blog.
