Today, pastors are busier than ever, with more time spent in ministry activities and less time spent in sermon preparation. Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Volume 5 gives the busy pastor a head start on sermon preparation. With 52 complete sermon outlines (see sermon titles and scripture references below), pastors can save hundreds of hours a year, with the base research and layout for a year’s worth of sermons already in place.

Here’s some advantages Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Volume 5 provides:

  • These are complete sermon outlines. Each sermon outline is much more than a basic three point outline requiring a lot of time and research to flesh out. These outlines go much deeper, with each main point completely developed with sub-points and more.
  • Each sermon outline has a wealth of detail, great for spurring your own thoughts and allowing you to take the sermon in another direction as you feel led.
  • Sermon illustrations include enough detail to suggest your own personal or applicable illustrations.
  • 3 complete sermon series are included: “Next Level”, “Launch”, and “Move Out”. These series providing a map for the next several Sundays, saving many hours of advance planning and preparation.
