Outlining is a crucial part of the sermon prep process.
Just like a body needs a skeleton, a sermon needs an outline to provide a framework for the message.
In this episode, we will dive into the most effective way to outline your message every single time.
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.
Brandon Kelley, author of Preaching Sticky Sermons and founder of Rookie Preacher, joins us for episode one of the Preaching Donkey Podcast to talk about finding your voice as a preacher, preparing a text in order to preach it compellingly and the unique struggles of leading during these challenging times.
Not everyone processes information the same way! Some learn audibly, others visually, still others kinesthetically. As preachers who want to communicate effectively with our audience, we must leverage all the tools we have to reach everyone in our audience with our message. In this video, we explore three things you must do to ensure your messages reach everyone in your church.
The concept of authority is a touchy issue. Some avoid it altogether because of how they've seen "authority" abused in church settings. Other people want to preach with a sense of authority but don't know how or even fully what that means. I think there is a lot of confusion around this issue, and I hope to bring some clarity to it. I believe every preacher should preach with authority and confidence. But that authority does not derive from within themselves, the authority comes from preaching the Word of God. In this video, I'll outline what it looks like to preach with authority the way we were meant to as preachers.

I received this email from a subscriber: "My biggest frustration with preaching and preparing is finding topics to build sermons around... ...I think this will become more difficult once I start building sermon series. Either way, it is something I am praying about and I know God will guide me with this!" In this video I deal with how to select topics to preach about and how to map out a year's plan for sermon content.
I received this email from one of my subscribers... "My sermon challenge is the inability to time my messages (sermon). Most times, a beautiful sermon will have to be ended abruptly because of time constraints." He is not alone in this struggle. All of us have dealt with running out of time when preaching. In this video, I offer 3 tips for dealing with time constraints ahead of time.
