Welcome to Preaching Life
At Preaching Life you will find articles and quotes on preaching, devotionals and illustrations, plus information about additional resources available through Preaching Life Resources. Most of the blog content is taken from the archives of PreachingLibrary.com and PreachingAcademy.com.
Preaching Life is a resource designed to assist pastors and teachers in sermon preparation, as well providing training opportunities in sermon development and delivery. Steve May, President of Preaching Life, has been working with pastors since 1994.
• We believe in preaching.
Through the “foolishness of preaching” the message of the gospel is proclaimed to each generation. We believe that the hours spent in sermon preparation and the moments spent preaching make up the most important block of time in the life of any preacher or Bible study leader. Our resources are designed to help you get ready for Sunday, week-after-week, as well as to help you sharpen your communication skills throughout your ministry.
• We believe in preachers.
Pastors have the greatest job in the world. Not the most glamorous job, and not the best paying job. But certainly the most important. You’re called to serve God’s people as a leader, and to lead them as a servant. Among your many job responsibilities is the awesome privilege of teaching of the Scriptures.
Preaching Life exists to provide resources you can turn to as you seek to fulfill this aspect of your calling.
You can find us online, but we are more than an online resource. We exist to serve, encourage, strengthen and equip those called to communicate the gospel.
In addition to printed materials and the occasional live event, our primary platform for providing pastoral resources is through three online resources:
Preaching Library: A collection of 750 sermons, 100 sermon series, and more than 5000 sermon illustrations to help pastors in the weekly research and sermon preparation.
Preaching Academy: A collection of training resources related to the public speaking aspect of the ministry. This includes a 30 day Advanced Preaching Course, additional preaching-related articles, and one-on-one coaching.
Preaching Life: This is the website you’re currently visiting. Preaching Life offers a number of free resources for pastors, including the Monday Memo weekly devotional, the Preaching Life Newsletter, a Seven Day Guide to Bullet Proof Preaching, free sermons, and the Preaching Life blog.
