Why do churches make such a big deal out of preaching? Why does the sermon typically take up half of a church service? One would think after 2,000 years of church history, Christians would figure out a different way to disseminate the gospel. Well, the truth is churches make a big deal out of preaching because the Bible makes a big deal of preaching. Sermon preparation and delivery is one of the most important functions of the senior minster. This course will prepare the church planter for preaching and teaching in the new church.

This course is “free”; however, there are several required reading books that will greatly enhance your learning experience. These books (available on kindle) will be valuable resources in your church planting journey and pastoral ministry. Links for these books (and other resources) are provided within each of the course units.
