Balance in Preaching
Great sermons are built on excellence in three essential areas.
Content. It's a combination of the material in your message and the quality of your spiritual life.
Structure. Like the plot of a story, your listeners need to be able to follow along, understanding where you've been and where you're going.
Delivery. Just like a song must be performed on key, a message needs to be delivered well.
Preaching Library helps you maximize each area.

Learning From One Another
And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. (2 Timothy 2:2 HCSB)
The primary method of discipleship is that we take what we have learned and pass it on to others.
For this reason, effective preachers consider listening to (and reading) sermons from other pastors to be a crucial part of sermon preparation.
It's never about preaching someone else's sermon. It's about getting good, usable ideas from preachers whose messages resonate with you and your style of communication.
The most important investment a preacher can make is an investment in preaching: Resources that help you develop content and tools to help you sharpen your delivery.
The Preaching Library provides both, week-in and week-out.
Let's be honest. This isn't about reducing the time you spend preparing a message.
After all, who really wants to spend less time in God's Word?
This is about making the most of your already limited time.
You'll have Illustrations at your fingertips. An outline to get an idea going. A fresh perspective on a familiar text. And a huge head start on power point presentations.
Preaching Library helps you maximize each precious hour in the study.
Our Most Popular Book Studies
Preaching Library makes it easy to preach through an entire book, chapter-by-chapter, passage-by-passage.
FINISH STRONG (2 TIMOTHY)
As Paul lived out his final days in a Roman prison, he left last minute instructions for a young pastor named Timothy.
In this letter, Paul demonstrates what it means to go the distance in life, to run the race to the very last step.
A STORY OF REDEMPTION (RUTH)
This is the story of how two women, Ruth and Naomi, left a life of despair in a foreign land in search of better days.
Naomi felt bitter and empty. Ruth was seen as an outsider. Together they discovered that no situation is beyond the reach of God's redeeming love.
IN CHRIST ALONE (HEBREWS)
Hebrews has been called "the riddle of the New Testament" because we do not know many specifics about it. But this we know: it is too good to be ignored.
This 13 part series teaches us about Jesus the High Priest, the author and finisher of our faith.
INCOURAGE (1 PETER)
This 8 part series teaches believers how to develop bold faith and a courageous lifestyle in the face of life's toughest challenges, from one who overcame setbacks, heartbreak and personal failures to become a great man of God: the Apostle Peter.
Galatians teaches how to experience victorious living through finding life in Christ crucified and the power of the Holy Spirit.
This 6 part series teaches how to discover the fullness of victory God intends for all believers.
THE APPRENTICE (1 TIMOTHY)
This series examines Paul's advice to Timothy, an up-and-coming leader in the early church.
Timothy was young, perhaps a bit timid, but he was also gifted. Paul's personal letter to him details the essentials every leader must master.
VINTAGE CHRISTIANITY (JAMES)
Often considered the best of the New Testament books for new disciples, this 10 part study of James shows us what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
Discover a practical approach for putting your faith into action on a daily basis.
WHERE YOU LEAD (NEHEMIAH)
Nehemiah is often called the ultimate leadership book as it teaches vision casting, conflict resolution, management by objective, and character-based leadership.
This six week series helps you develop a missional heart and grow into new areas of leadership.
