How do you get people to really respond to your sermons? And no, I don’t mean in terms of persnickety emails after you preach. I mean seeing people really “get it” because you were able to communicate the Word to them in a powerful way. It’s not necessarily up to us — the Spirit of God is the One providing breakthroughs — but how can we make sure we’re fostering those breakthroughs as best we can?— To stay connected with us, follow Ministry Pass https://instagram.com/ministrypass and Sermonary https://instagram.com/sermonary.

Ever skipped over a list of names in your selected passage? You bet you have. It’s hard to know how to preach through them and squeeze out practical applications for your audience. But what are we missing when we jump over Old Testament genealogies and the listed names of New Testament disciples? More careful study can unearth some valuable gems.-- To stay connected with us, follow Ministry Pass https://instagram.com/ministrypass and Sermonary https://instagram.com/sermonary.

You preach the Gospel to others — but do you regularly preach it to yourself? Today we’re interviewing John Stange, whose new book Dwell on These Things releases in May. In addition to being an author, podcaster, mentor, and leadership trainer, John Stange is a church planter who has been a full-time pastor for the past 23 years. John knows how important it is for pastors to preach the good news to their own hearts, especially when they’re dealing with pressure, criticism, and negativity from their own churches and society at large. --Stange's book, Dwell on These Things: https://amzn.to/38TsGVP and his website: desirejesus.com-- To stay connected with us, follow Ministry Pass https://instagram.com/ministrypass and Sermonary https://instagram.com/sermonary.

Do you use commentaries when you write your sermons?If not, should you? The Bible is the foundation for every sermon we write, but secondary resources can be incredibly valuable in helping us understand it. After all, the Bible is thousands of years old. By virtue of the Spirit, it was penned by dozens of authors to a variety of audiences in completely different cultures, not to mention translated from other languages!--To stay connected with us, follow Ministry Pass https://instagram.com/ministrypass and Sermonary https://instagram.com/sermonary.

When’s the last time you preached on the book of Ezekiel? Maybe never, right? You may have taught from other Old Testament books, but data shows that there’s a “New Testament favoritism” among American churches. We tend to feel like the New Testament is easier to understand and apply than the Old… but neglecting the deep context of God’s Word can put us at risk. --THE GOSPEL STORY OFFER: https://sermonary.co/the-gospel-story-special-offer/--To stay connected with us, follow Ministry Pass https://instagram.com/ministrypass and Sermonary https://instagram.com/sermonary.

Do you control your meetings, or do your meetings control you? Meetings tend to multiply. They can take over your schedule — and worse, they can derail fast.

But don’t worry: There are effective ways to control the chaos. -- DOWNLOAD the sheet through our blog post: https://sermonary.co/how-to-keep-your-church-staff-meetings-productive/ — To stay connected with us, follow Ministry Pass https://instagram.com/ministrypass and Sermonary https://instagram.com/sermonary.

What kind of small group model should your church use?Some groups are more about fellowship (interest-based groups), some are focused on Bible study (like a Sunday school class), and others are centralized around the Sunday sermon. We think sermon-based groups can be really effective, and we’d love to tell you why.Read the blog post here: https://ministrypass.com/why-you-should-use-a-sermon-based-small-group/ — To stay connected with us, follow Ministry Pass https://instagram.com/ministrypass and Sermonary https://instagram.com/sermonary.
