    Welcome to episode #34 of The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better.

    In this episode, I offer ten helpful hints for preaching as the new pastor of a local church… 

    1. Make preaching a top priority.
    2. Do not neglect your sermon preparation.
    3. Plan your preaching.
    4. Introduce your congregation to series preaching early.
    5. Do the work of an evangelist.
    6. Don’t take it personally.
    7. Be a church historian.
    8. Love your people.
    9. Preach for tomorrow, not about yesterday.
    10. Avoid unnecessary controversy.

    BONUS SUGGESTION: Make haste slowly.


    What advice would you give to a preacher who is beginning a new pastorate?
