    This is the third episode of The On Preaching Conference, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better.

    This episode is about the different types of sermons. Did you know there are different types of sermons? All sermons are not equated equal. And some kinds of sermons are better than others.

    Understanding different sermon types is important because you need to be serious about how you handle the scriptures. You should be intentional about what your sermons is trying to accomplish. And you must be careful about what your style of preaching communicates to your people.

    Here are seven different types of sermons. 

    1. The Topical Sermon

    2. The Textual Sermon

    3. The Narrative Sermon

    4. The Dramatic Monologue

    5. The Biographical Sermon

    6. The Doctrinal Sermon

    7. The Expository Sermon
