6 Ways For Pastors To Get Out Of A Sermon-Prep Rut

It was a Friday night at 10pm, and I was in my office working on the sermon I was to deliver five times that weekend - the first of which was going to take place in less than 24 hours. My friend and Senior Pastor was driving by the church, saw my light on, and stopped by to see how I was doing. “I’ve got nothing!" I said, "This will be the worst message ever preached from this pulpit!” He laughed, but stopped when he realized I wasn’t kidding.

The 5 Best Ways For Your Church To Connect With First-Time Guests

 

A few years ago, along with my wife and a few friends, I decided to visit a large church we had heard about. I was excited. The preacher was well-known as one of the best in the country. We arrived early and sat on the left side of the sanctuary about two-thirds back from the stage. The service started, and the music was amazing. Then the announcements came. The pastor asked all first-time guests to stand up. My heartbeat quickened and, despite a momentary hesitation, I stood up. I looked to my right to see that my wife and our friends did not stand.

How Pastors Can Keep Their Easter Sermons Fresh

As a pastor, I often said that “Sunday comes every seven days with ridiculous regularity, and you can’t slow it down no matter how hard you try.” When you preach week after week after week, that pressure can build as you attempt to teach the Bible in a transformational way. Sunday comes once a week - it's an obvious reality, but it can be a stressful reality for those writing sermons week in and week out.
