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.
As we wrap up 2020 and look forward to another year of ministry and preaching, it's important to take a moment and reflect on what's most important in our preaching.
Jordan Easley joins us for episode seven of the Preaching Donkey Podcast and shares about his process for planning ahead, working with his team & the importance of evangelism both in the sermon and in life. Follow Jordan on Instagram: jordan_easley and on Twitter: @jordaneasley
Bill Isaacs, author of Be the Leader, joined me for the sixth episode of the Preaching Donkey Podcast. He shared about how he utilizes his team for sermon prep, how he focuses on what is most important and lessons from leading through a pandemic.
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.
Armstrong shares how to engage skeptics in a relational way, discusses the differences between spirituality and atheism, and gives three key arguments for defending faith.
