Effective Preaching Blog

What goes into making an effective preaching blog for you to check out?

God is raising up preachers in these last days to proclaim the gospel with vitality and power.  Maybe you care about how to become more effective at preaching:

– more interesting;

– more compelling;

– more spiritually uplifting,

– messages that inspire, encourage and instruct believers to thrive in their walk and reach others

– messages that draw unbelievers and seekers to engage with the scriptures and take that next step to become followers of Jesus Christ.

Do you want to improve your preaching? Do you want to challenge yourself to try some things that will help you grow? Has your preaching gone into a rut and you want to change?

Christian Leaders Institute has made this effective preaching blog for you to grow in your preaching calling.

Dr. Bruce Ballast leads this site. He will offer resources, commentary, links, blogs, and vlogs that will help you make your act of preaching not just thrown together, but an art portrait that touches the heart through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Dr. Bruce Ballast has been recognized as a preacher who has mastered both the techniques and the art of preaching ministry.

We define “preaching” as communication that includes prophetic and Biblically informed content that is prepared and presented to a spiritually inclined audience.

Special attention will be given to the different roles Christian leaders might fill. For some, preaching may mean they are senior pastors seeking to improve their communications. Some who benefit from this site may be Sunday School teachers or women ministers in charge of a women’s ministry. Youth ministers will find the discussions on this site helpful. Your roles may vary in ministry, but the communication of the gospel and Biblical truth, which we often call preaching, is as essential now as ever.
