After talking to hundreds of preachers, we’ve found most preachers love preaching, but the grind of preparation can often become a pain.  Here are three things we’ve seen.

1. Great preaching comes from a great preparation system.  Perry Noble doesn’t prepare in a vacuum.  He has a team at NewSpring Church that helps him prepare.  Perry will talk about how this works at the FREE online event on March 15th.

2. A Preparation day is better than feeling like you have to prepare all the time.  Andy Stanley sets aside every Wednesday to prepare messages, and his team helps him keep this time guarded.  While Andy is gifted, his commitment to preparation helps make his messages memorable.  Andy will talk about the structure of his preparation day on the Preach Better Sermons online event.

3. Developing a sermon planning system takes the pain out of preparation.  There are things you can do on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual basis that will dramatically improve your preparation time and help you deliver better messages. Helping you put something like this into place will be a part of the free online event.

There’s no “I” in team, but there’s two in vision because vision was never meant to be the sole responsibility of one leader it takes a team.

Vision-Casters are Vision-Carriers. They carry and cast vision to others, those people become Vision-Carriers and in turn become Vision-Casters.

The four words that limit the vision of any organization: “It’s not my job.

A great question to ask yourself everyday: “What did I do TODAY to cast vision for our organization or church?”
You can’t get from A-Z over night, so…

  • Start where you are.
  • Use what you have.
  • Do what you can.

Vision-Casters and Vision-Carriers are great Story-Tellers.
Think of yourself as a movie producer or director, always on the lookout for a great story to tell.
Re-live past stories and tell them in every environment.

North Point Online definitely made improvements from last week. As far as I could tell, there were no problems for people trying to tune in and there were over 9,300 people watching on their
