Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Volume 2

Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Volume 2

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 2 gives the busy pastor a head start on sermon preparation. With 52 complete sermon outlines, 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 are some advantages Sermon Outlines for Busy Pastors: Volume 2 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.
  • Can be used for Sunday Morning messages, Sunday Night sermons, or Wednesday Night teaching.
  • Three complete sermon series are included: “Misconceptions”, a look at some misunderstandings about the church, “Seriously”, covering some spiritual disciplines Christians can incorporate into their lives, and “Xmas-What’s Missing in Your Christmas”, an examination of what we miss with the commercialization of Christmas. These series provide a map for the next several Sundays, saving many hours of advance planning and preparation.
