    Always Strive to Improve Your Preaching

    As a pastor, it can be easy to slip into a comfortable rhythm and habit of preaching. And while change isn’t always easy, you should always be looking to improve and develop the way you preach.

    Note: There are three books referenced in this podcast episode. They are: Biblical Preaching by Haddon Robinson, Communicating for Change by Andy Stanley, and Preaching Without Notes by Joseph M. Webb.

Review/ question

First of all great, great information and encouragement for young guys like me that are call and dreaming of starting a church. Excellent Job!

Question:

Where can i get info about the church planter assessment camp? Or what assessment would you recommend to take?

WilliamR1976 ,

Why didn’t I find this sooner!

These two ministers have decided to combine their knowledge of church planting and growth for our benefit. So far so good... I’ve listened to all 4 podcasts and 3 bonus casts and can’t wait to hear more from them!!!

Smitchpac ,

A great resource!

I really enjoyed listening to the episode about taking your church from a portable to a permanent facility. Lots of good practical insights and advice
