  • #102: Helpful Hints for Preaching Online [PODCAST]
  • Welcome to The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better.

    We are in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. The general consensus is that social-distancing is essential to slowing down the spread of the Coronavirus. Most of us are in places where we have been ordered to do so.

    Many churches have chosen to suspend everything during this period, which is understandable. Others have chosen to stream messages or record them to play online. This is what our congregation has done. It seems this will be the way it is for weeks to come.

    What can you do to preach effectively online during this period?

    1. Preach.
    2. Forsake your preaching plan.
    3. PRepare fresh bread.
    4. Prioritize content over response.
    5. Preach familiar texts.
    6. Select smaller passages.
    7. Choose your words carefully.
    8. Do not be handcuffed to notes.
    9. Be authentic.
    10. Depend on the Holy Spirit.
