The busy pastor is filled with concerns about his people and ministry that often shape the focus and content of his sermons. He may ask himself, What are the needs of my church’s members? What do they need to learn? What spiritual gifts are they lacking? What has their attention on social media right now? Am I getting my messages across? What sins need to be addressed this week? The list goes on.
Ultimately, preaching must be Christ-centered and biblical, but what does that sound like? Busy pastors can lose sight of the forest for the trees. Our keynote speaker, Pastor Bryan Chapell, author of Christ-Centered Preaching, will lead a revitalizing refresher on God-honoring preaching and application, addressing many of these and other issues.
