Edward Lobb is the Director of the Cornhill Training Course Scotland. In full-time ministry since 1976, he served a number of parishes, most recently St Peter's Stapenhill at Burton-on-Trent. Edward was involved in the very first of Dick Lucas's preaching conferences and has been closely associated with the work of The Proclamation Trust ever since. He remains a regular contributor to their conference program, including the Cornhill Summer School in London.

Under the title Letting the Word do the Work, Edward will aim in his sessions to address some of the central issues that expository preachers have to wrestle with — issues to do with content and context, application, and how to structure biblical sermons so as to allow God's Word to make it's fullest impact.
