Are you struggling to keep your sermons concise yet powerful? Preaching is an art form that you can improve in over time and the practice of shaving down your sermon lengths while striving to maintain impact is a discipline that will help you continue to preach with a punch over the long-haul.

Maintaining audience engagement, effortless transition into response time, and integrating the sermon better with the overall flow of the service is often an overflow of a sermon that is the perfect length for the message. 

It may appear that we want 'shorter sermons' but truthfully what we want to be able to do is make every minute count. Whether it's a 25, 30, 35, or even 50 minute sermon, if you've been intentional in your preparation, challenged yourself to make the most of every minute, and only use the words that are necessary, you'll find that all the benefits you want will follow.

In this episode of Preaching Through Podcast we explore practical tips like illustrating every point, rehearsing your sermon, rediscovering teh love of preaching, and ultimately using the moments before Sunday to maximize every moment on Sunday.

Whether you're a seasoned preacher or just starting out, this episode will inspire you to approach your sermon preparation with renewed intentionality and passion. Be challenged to say more with less and ultimately lead your congregation to a deeper encounter with Jesus. 

If you're up for discovering the sweet spot of time preached and interesting content, you'll love this episode with guest speaker, Pastor Chad Francis. Connect with Chad on Twitter, https://x.com/chadafrancis.
