How to Reduce Your Stress and Maximize Your Effectiveness [Free Preaching Webinars]

I consider it an honor and a tremendous blessing that God has allowed us the opportunity to invest in church leaders each and every day through the ministry of Church Leader Insights.

With several thousand pastors in the Church Leader Insights family, you might imagine that I get to hear from a lot of them (and I really enjoy hearing stories of how God is at work in your church too!).

But with all the hundreds of messages I get, there are several themes that seem to pop up over and over again.

Two of the most common (definitely in the top 5) issues I hear about from pastors are:

  1. How to deal with (or cut down) the stress of leading our church?
  2. What can I do to increase the impact of what we’re doing at my church?

Of course, there’s no single “magic bullet” that will answer these two questions, but I have found that there’s one powerful tool that you can put in place now that will help you reduce your weekly stress AND make better use of the opportunities placed before you over the next year.

That one tool?

An annual Preaching Calendar!

Yep – by planning what you’re going to preach on months in advance, you can break free from the pressure and stress of having to plan messages from week to week.

Plus, you can fully engage each of the unique possibilities and avoid each of the pitfalls that occur in the coming months.

Planning your preaching calendar also allows you and your team to be more creative, by allowing more lead time for different elements in each Sunday’s service.

And finally, in developing this calendar you’ll be able to better leverage opportunities like baptism, membership classes, seasonal outreach events and more – for maximum Kingdom effectiveness!

In short, if you asked me where to start right now to insure that your church makes a bigger difference for Christ in 2013, I’d be hard pressed to find a better starting point than planning an annual preaching calendar.

So, here’s how I want to help you in this process:

I’d like to invite you to join me NEXT WEEK for one of 8 identical FREE Webinars, called “Planning Your 2013 Preaching Calendar”

Each webinar is 75 minutes long, and in it, I’ll walk you month-by-month through my personal 2013 preaching calendar (we plan ours as a team each year), pointing out each of the pitfalls and possibilities that the 2013 calendar provides.

Again, the webinar is FREE, but it’s one of the most popular online training opportunities I lead each year, so space is limited.
