Listening to Your Listeners: A Preaching Preparation Process That Changes…Everything!
During this workshop, participants discover how diverse congregations have established and maintained pre-sermon dialogue groups.
A vast majority of listeners attending U.S. churches have never talked with a pastor about a sermon. And, unfortunately, those listeners report by the thousands that though they expect spiritual growth as they listen to their preachers, it usually does not occur. Preachers who listen to their listeners as a regular part of sermon preparation can expect to change these patterns, increasing the spiritual impact of preaching for individuals, congregations, communities—and culture.
