Hi and welcome to the 3 epic blogs about preaching list.
I want to start by congratulating you on wanting to develop yourself as a communicator of the gospel!
2 Tim 2:15 (MSG) says this:
“Concentrate on doing your best for God, work you won’t be ashamed of, laying out the truth plain and simple.”
There are a lot of great preachers out there we can learn from.
Some you know already because, well… they’re kinda famous.
Others are unknown. Yet they’re preaching their hearts out, skillfully and excellently bringing the Word of God to life in the hearts of their listeners.
Sometimes we fall for the false idea you have to learn from well-known megachurch pastors.
Sure, there’s a lot you can learn from them (their church is mega for a reason!), but never underestimate the nuggets of wisdom you can glean from those working at the grassroots level week in and week out.
In the last 15 years as a preacher, I’ve noticed it’s often the minor adjustments you make to your preaching that make the biggest difference.
And reading preaching blogs can help you get better.
So can taking preaching courses.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at the best blogs about preaching.
I PROMISE you’ll be glad you did!

2. Preaching Donkey By Lane Sebring
I love the title of this blog because “If God can speak through a donkey, He can speak through you!”
With real-life examples and step by steps, this blog will help fine-tune you in the art of communicating the gospel.
There’s a wealth of eBooks and podcasts available too, definitely worth checking out.
Here’s what Lane says in 3 Ways To Give Application In Your Sermons:
“If your goal is simply to educate or inform your audience so they can be more knowledgeable, then stop preaching.
Preaching, of necessity, requires application. We’re preaching for life change. We’re preaching to make the written word become the living word in people’s daily lives.”
Wow. I love that! 😍

3. ProPreacher By Brandon Hilgemann
There are so many things I love about this blog post that it’s difficult to highlight just one.
This blog is packed to the brim with practical advice, sermon prep checklists, sermon graphics and illustrations.
Brandon often opens up and shares about his own preaching journey, you can’t help but relate.
He’s honest about his successes and yes, failures so you can learn from his experience and become a better preacher.
Here’s a quote from A Quick Shift That Will Dramatically Improve Your Preaching:
“My perspective was totally wrong. I kept stressing, “I have to preach. I have to preach. I have to preach.” But what became absolutely clear to me at that moment is that I didn’t have to preach; I get to preach.
Preaching is an honor. It’s a great privilege. God has called you and me to share his message. We’re entrusted with the awesome responsibility to proclaim his Word and the great news of the gospel.”
