The #1 way to grow your church is through preaching better sermons.

Preaching is more effective than any promotion or advertising when it comes to growing a church.

The messages you deliver are what keep your current members coming back week after week.

And, they’re the greatest determining factor of whether or not guests and unchurched people will attend your church.

7 Reasons Great Preaching Will Grow Your Church

1. Great Preaching Attracts People

Jesus drew crowds because he spoke with authority about everyday issues. 

Jesus engaged with his audience, gave real-life examples and told interesting stories.

Try using an interesting story in your next preach, people love a good story!

Seekers are looking for more than a motivation or ‘pick me up’; they want to know what the Bible says on important issues relating to them and their life.

“90% of unchurched people choose a church based on the pastor or preaching.”

2. Great Preaching Starts Great Conversations

A great sermon gets people talking outside and away from your main Sunday morning service.

Great conversations can be had at the office, in coffee shops or in your small home groups.

3. Great Preaching Points People to Follow Jesus

People drawing closer to God is the natural result of a solid sermon.

Speaking God’s Word with conviction and skill will inspire and motivate people to connect with their life-giving Creator.

4. Great Preaching Can Be Shared Beyond Sunday

Thanks to giant technological advances such as the internet, you have the greatest opportunity in the history of the church to get the Gospel out there.

Through YouTube, podcasts and social media you have the potential to reach an entirely new audience with your message.

5. Great Preaching Affects The Reputation Of Your Church

Whether good or bad, the biggest benchmark people judge your church by is the senior pastor’s preaching.

Great preaching fuels people to invite their unsaved family and friends to church.

7. Great Preaching Will Encourage Visitors to Come Back

If people return to your church for a second time they are far more likely to get connected with your church family, give you their contact details (so you can follow up), and maybe even volunteer in a service area.

Ultimately, great preaching is the biggest tool in turning visitors into church members.

A Better Way To Prepare & Preach Sermons

We preach as a labour of love and yet so many preachers are, well, let’s say less effective than we could be…

I think that’s got to do with not using our time wisely when preparing sermons. Most preachers struggle to come up with sermon outlines easily because they have no system to follow.

Having a proven sermon system means you actually preach better without the need to stress out spending hours and hours struggling with preacher’s block.
