I can’t wait to dive into this blog series as over the next few weeks I explore some aspects of becoming a better preacher.
If you work for a church, chances are you preach.
It may not be on Sunday morning but you are required to preach to students, kids, adults in between worship songs, or in a small group. Communication is essential in ministry and for Rookie Pastors the challenge is to find ways to hone and develop the craft that is preaching.
At the core of preaching are the disciplines of prayer and reading scripture. Beyond this foundation you are left with high stakes public speaking.
This will be the landing page for this series. The below list will expand as we go and links will be added as each post gets published.
