While a Dallas Seminary student in the nineties I was introduced to long-term sermon preparation techniques. This is the process of planning a one year preaching calender.
The purpose of the exercise was to help the pastor lay a framework for his message series, central biblical passages and big ideas. This learning experience enhanced my years of preaching/teaching as a pastor and educator.
If Sunday seems to come too fast you might be interested in a stimulating discussion on long-term sermon planning. Feel free to listen to a D.Min. roundtable discussion with special guests Dr. Vic Anderson, Dr. Roger Raymer, and Dr. John Reed.
