How To Remove The Pain From Preparing A Weekly Sermon

After talking to thousands of preachers, we’ve found most preachers love preaching, but the grind of preparation can often become a pain.  Here are three things we’ve seen.

1. Great preaching comes from a great preparation system.  Dave Ramsey knows how to use humor in communication. His witty and pithy sayings tickle the funny bone and are memorable. But, he knows this kind of communication doesn’t effortlessly roll off the tip of your tongue.  Ramsey will talk about the system he uses to prepare to speak at FREE online event on May 1st. 

2. Knowing the keys to crafting a great message is half the preparation battle.  Jon Acuff knows the core essentials to a great message. He’ll share what makes a talk capture the audience and stay with them after it’s over. Nancy Duarte knows how to use contrast to bring on the best in your message. She’ll share how to create a message that people not only hear, but also see. You’ll learn the keys to masterful story-telling on the Preach Better Sermons online event.

3. Developing a sermon planning system takes the pain out of preparation.  There are things you can do on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual basis that will dramatically improve your preparation time and help you deliver better messages. Pete Wilson will share his preparation process. Helping you put something like this into place will be a part of the free online event.
