Tuesday is for Preaching
Advice for Young Preachers Just out of Seminary / Bible College or in your first full time preaching assignment:
- Circular file all conference/seminar invitations for the next two to three years.
- Concentrate on loving people, studying the Word of God, and praying for your people and neighborhood.
- Practice the 5-5-5 plan* (this goes beyond the first two years). Have two or three people evaluate your messages each week for clarity and accuracy.
* Devote five years, five days a week, five hours a day to prayer and Bible Study.
* Preach through Books of the Bible not Topics.
- Practice beating a path to the cross from every text, every week. (ask me why in the comments).
