A Call To Mastery

Preaching and teaching is a gift. Not only that, it is a science. God may have entrusted you with the gift of preaching and teaching in its rawest form, but it requires development, it requires mastery.

Consider Jesus, who spent thirty years in obscurity prior to his public ministry. He grew in knowledge and understanding of his Father and of the Kingdom. He also learnt who his audience was and how to communicate to them.

Whether you’re a new addition to your church’s preaching roster or already a seasoned preacher–a deliberate and ongoing commitment is needed to expand the effectiveness of your Kingdom communication.

The effort enables you to engage your congregation by bringing ancient Biblical truth to life in a way that empowers every listener to reach their sphere of influence.

When we realise that our preaching reaches beyond the bounds of Sundays, the weight of every word matters. We are, in essence, speaking directly into our congregation’s workplace, school, home and relationships.

The holy mandate on you as a preacher is to both ‘reach’ and to ‘influence’.

A Call To Reach

Jesus Christ knew exactly what to say and to whom. He was a masterful storyteller. He was personal. He was culturally relevant. He made the Gospel pertinent to each individual and their situation, because he knew his listeners and how to reach them.

We are called to share and teach the Gospel to ‘all’. Believers and non-believers alike. Cynics and skeptics, the marginalised, the curious and the religious. Every individual no matter their age and stage. Therefore what we say and how we say it matters because this Gospel, this truth, is for everyone.

Is what we say anointed? Is our interpretation of the Bible accurate? Does our audience engage with our message? Do they understand it? Do we give people hope in the midst of their circumstances? Are we being authentic? There’s a lot to think about!

How humbling to know that through our preaching and teaching we are a bridge from Heaven to earth and from the Bible to daily living. God is making his appeal through us.

A Call To Influence

Imagine sharing memorable stories from Scripture and your own personal walk, in such a way that your congregation is so affected with a revelation of grace and truth that they not only become listeners of The Word, but are compelled to become doers of The Word.

Founder and Global Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church, Brian Houston, says that our goal should be to speak to people’s Mondays. In other words, the measure of our preaching is not how many people have heard your message or how many compliments you received, but that your congregation were able to apply it to their lives.

Every member of your congregation is uniquely called and placed in their own sphere of influence. This requires us to preach the life-giving Word of God in a way that is full of faith and practical application, that transforms mindsets and can be remembered on Monday, fuelling everyone’s God-given potential.

The purpose of this course is to enable you to serve your congregation with Christ-centered, Biblical messages that empower your listeners to lead and impact in every sphere of life.
