“Planning in advance is the only way you and I will be able to create life-changing worship services that reflect God’s excellence and allow him to work to the fullest degree. And here’s the key, teaching pastor: your preaching calendar sets the stage for your entire church’s planning system. Your preaching calendar is the foundation; it’s the backbone that supports every other area of your worship planning. When you commit to outlining your preaching in advance, you give yourself, your team, and ultimately your congregation a gift – the gift of teaching and worship that creates life change. Without advance planning, you run the risk of simply sharing information that will be forgotten at the final amen.”
– Nelson Searcy and Jason Hatley
