We take our jobs seriously. We know that if we want to have a greater impact we need to constantly be improving. If we are going to lead our church to the next level we need to take our skills to the next level and nothing gets stage time like preaching.
It’s time to level up your preaching.
- Address the group’s specific need.
Think of Paul, why did he write his letters? He wasn’t their pen pal, he was addressing what they were dealing with. Know what your church needs to learn in order to take their next step. Know what they (as a whole) are dealing with….then address that.
- Step up your follow up.
How are you engaging your audience on Wednesday? Reach out to them by email, social media or any other appropriate channel you use and encourage them. Help them remember what you talked about that weekend. What was your message application? Send them some helpful tips or further study on the topic.
- Make it a spiritual experience.
It’s church. It’s already a spiritual experience, right? Help your church expect God’s movement. Tell them that you’ve been praying and prepping for this message. Tell them God has them here because he loves them. Tell them He wants to know them more. Tell them God is moving, even if it’s a still small voice. Because he is, it’s church after all.
Add any one of these to your workflow and you have successfully leveled up your preaching. Congrats. Your church is worth it.
