Crowdsourcing the Message

It’s been a few weeks now since my book officially released and I wanted to take a moment and explain who it is written for and what it’s about. If you follow my blog you probably are aware of it—but you might not have an adequate understanding of the book itself.

I wrote the book with a healthy dose of humor—so hopefully it is an enjoyable read for just about anyone—but there are three groups of people in particular that I believe would benefit from it.

  1. Preachers—it doesn’t just have to be senior pastors. Anybody who teaches regularly in the Church can benefit from a team approach like this book discusses. Student pastors or volunteer teachers can all benefit from the process.
  2. Teaching-minded Church attendees—the collaborative preaching approach invites non-staff members of the Church into the preaching development process. If you have a love for what is said during the weekend messages, this could be you. Even if you aren’t a preacher or never plan to get on stage yourself. This is the group I hope gets the most out of the book.
  3. Central attendees—even if you wouldn’t consider yourself in groups 1 or 2 you may be interested in this discussion if you have a love for what God is doing through Central. This book offers a unique, behind-the-scenes look at our process and much of it would be things that the typical person at Central is unaware of.

As the book tagline says, we are “engaging people in the church for powerful and effective teaching to the church.” I obviously love preaching and love communicating so this is a chance to bring others into this discussion. People who have stood on the sidelines for too long.

Congratulations Jeremy! Your book has reached the east coast...I bought a copy and gave it to my pastor (after I read it and dogeared it of course). Hoping to get honorable mention in your next book...perhaps under marketing and outreach.

Haha, thanks for the support Mary Ellen! You and Holli are sure making your case for that acknowledgement section...

Just picked up the book Jeremy, can't wait to read it! It might take me a while, it's not really my strongest area.
