So, you’re ready to preach better sermons. Maybe you’ve been a teaching pastor for years looking for new ways to reach your congregation. Or maybe you’re straight out of Bible college looking for some advice on how to get started the right way. Well, in either instance, you have two ways for how you can proceed.
Option one is to do what I did: spend 30 years of your life learning the hard way. Today, Mark Clark and I preach to thousands of people every weekend. And while I’m still not perfect, I’m confident every week when I get up to deliver my sermon. Why? Because over the years (and it took me years), I’ve learned what connects and what doesn’t.
You can learn by trial and error, too—investing years into messages that aren’t as effective or engaging as they could be because you are missing some valuable insight into preaching.
Well, fortunately, there’s a second option: to learn the best tips and shortcuts to writing better, more engaging sermons.
