The Preaching Cheat Sheet

Pastors, we all know how difficult it can be to keep your sermons feeling fresh and relevant, especially when you’re preaching week after week.

Whether you’re hitting writer’s block or trying to put the finishing touches on your sermon, things don’t always go as planned.

To help, I’ve created a 10-step preaching cheat sheet. After decades of preaching, I simplified my sermon preparation into a series of steps and reminders that help me ensure my sermons are engaging, relevant, and memorable.

It will help you structure your message and key takeaways in a way that people will actually remember and apply to their lives. I’ve even had people come up to me YEARS after preaching a sermon and repeat my bottom line back to me.

It’s easy to use, just 10 simple prompts, with examples, that you can start using as early as this Sunday.

Increase Giving and Fully Fund Your Mission—Regardless of Where You're at Now.

When it comes to money conversations with your church, my guess is that you want the outcome (margin in your budget and a generous congregation) without the process (having to raise funds and talk about it).

The Art of Building a Generous Congregation is a proven method for increasing giving, creating a culture of generosity, and building financial margin at your church... without the stress and awkwardness.

Even if you don’t feel comfortable talking about money right now.
Even if you’ve never seen your congregation fully engage with that kind of conversation.
Even if you’ve tried other methods without success.

And yes, especially, if you could make a bigger difference by increasing your budget by 20%, 30%, or even 40%.
