Questions Featured in this Episode

1. 04:39: I’ve been listening to your book Lasting Impact and though I find it filled with good information, I’m overwhelmed with it all. How do I finance this new ministry model moving into the future?

2. 10:55: Our church has been considering launching a leadership podcast. Can you share how you prepare for a good interview? What’s your process on the back end to make the front end look so good?

3. 21:09: I pastor a church of 140 people and I’ve known most of the them for years. How do I respond as their pastor with authority when most consider me a peer?

5. 36:35: If Generation Z is going to grow up further from God than any other generation, how do you think this should effect the way we emphasize youth ministry? Do you think the church is succeeding or failing at empowering youth pastors? If we are called to pastor Generation Z how should that change the way we view church ministry as a whole?

A Brand New Resource for Preachers

art of better preaching

Ready to start preaching better sermons and reach the unchurched without selling out? Then it’s time to start using the right tips, lessons, and strategies to communicating better.

The Art of Better Preaching Course is a 12 session video training with a comprehensive, interactive workbook that will help you create, write, and deliver better sermons. The course contains the lessons Mark Clark (lead pastor of  Village Church, a growing mega-church in post-Christian Vancouver) and I have learned, taught, and used over decades of being professional communicators.

This is the complete course you need to start preaching better sermons, including:

  • 7 preaching myths it’s time to bust forever
  • The 5 keys to preaching sermons to unchurched people (that will keep them coming back)
  • How to discover the power in the text (and use it to drive your sermon)
  • The specific characteristics of sermons that reach people in today’s world
  • Why you need to ditch your sermon notes (and how to do it far more easily than you think.)
  • How to keep your heart and mind fresh over the long run

And far more! Plus you get an interactive workbook and some bonus resources that will help you write amazing messages week after week.

In the Art of Better Preaching, Mark and I share everything we’ve learned about communicating in a way that will help your church grow without compromising biblical integrity. We cover detailed training on everything from interacting with the biblical text to delivering a talk without using notes, to writing killer bottom lines that people will remember for years.
