Every pastor asks themselves how they are supposed to know what they need to preach. Good news- there isn’t one right way to answer this question.
Start by answering the following ten questions, then begin there!
1| What’s your lead pastor teaching?
Honor is always key.
2| What is a challenge you see in your ministry?
What you confront, you conquer.
3| What is something that is working in your ministry?
What you celebrate multiplies.
4| Is your ministry caught up in a trend where your audience can use biblical context?
Follow the trends and you fall in the traps.
5| What’s heavy on your heart as a leader?
Make what’s heavy on your heart heavy on their heart.
6| Is there room for growth in the ministry?
Turn your culture from a “come and see” to a “go and tell.”
7| Are they equipped to have spiritual disciplines?
They’ll make church services their “private time with God” if they’re not equipped to have a “private life with God” every day at home.
8| Do they know how to have Godly friendships & relationships?
Both are always needed.
9| Could we use a few more strong leaders?
Harvest is plentiful; laborers are few.
10| Have you asked them?
You don’t know what you don’t know.
