“Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.”
The church enjoys an abundance of people eager to share God’s nourishing Word through preaching, but many of us feel ill-equipped. Preaching isn’t a skill you can master in a few years; it’s a lifelong endeavor. And yet the heart of the matter is always this: to preach Christ and him crucified, and to preach from the Bible what God wants his people to hear.
How can we prepare for this challenging task?
Logos Mobile Education’s 10-course Preaching and Discipling Foundations Bundle will ground you in the rich heritage of biblical preaching, motivate you with a theological understanding of why we preach, and equip you with the foundational elements of preaching, from research to structure to delivery. For those of you who—like me—haven’t had the opportunity to finish (or even attend) seminary before entering formal ministry, this is a wonderful toolbox.
Right now, you can get 44% off the Preaching and Discipling Foundations Bundle: it’s about to leave Pre-Pub, so you should get it now before the price goes up.
You’ll get four courses on preaching from seasoned preachers Gary Carr and Kent Edwards, as well as courses on discipleship and ministry from Greg Ogden, Bev Hislop, Dan Doriani, and Michael Goheen. Each course comes with video and text; each is broken down into short segments you can learn from on your time, wherever you are. And when you’re ready to dig even deeper, each course has an abundance of recommended readings to help you as study, as well as Logos tutorials to help you get the most out of your software for sermon prep and research.
Continue learning and growing and, in the words of Ben Witherington, “your congregation will rise up and call you blessed.”
