Josh Duncan joins me on episode eleven of The Preaching Donkey Podcast to discuss his church planting journey as well as his experience with revitalizing a church. He shares about the hardships and struggles of ministry and how to love your family through tough times in ministry. We also dive into the importance of using tension in sermons and intentionally NOT resolving the tension.
These are the most important questions every speaker should ask before delivering any message.
Brandon Cox, pastor of Grace Hills Church in Arkansas, joins me for episode ten of the Preaching Donkey Podcast. He shares about the importance of communicating with the whole person, planning ahead and working with your team!
Announcements are tricky. Most of the time they go unheard and seem like a complete waste of time. In this video, I'll show you how to apply Andy Stanley's preaching method of Me, We, God, You, We to announcements to make them compelling and memorable.

The YouVersion Bible App and BibleGateway have released their data showing 2020's most searched-for Bible terms and most-read verses. Unsurprisingly, "Do Not Fear" was the most-read verse with "Fear" being the most searched-term. I think there's a lot we can learn from this as we plan our sermon content for 2021. In this video, we'll explore the implications for us as church leaders.
Johnny Armstrong, author of A Thought-Out Faith: Christianity as the Best Explanation, joins me for episode five of the Preaching Donkey Podcast.
