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 itâ€”but you might not have an adequate understanding of the book itself.
I wrote the book with a healthy dose of humorâ€”so hopefully it is an enjoyable read for just about anyoneâ€”but there are three groups of people in particular that I believe would benefit from it.
- Preachersâ€”it doesnâ€™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.
- Teaching-minded Church attendeesâ€”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.
- Central attendeesâ€”even if you wouldnâ€™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 â€œengaging people in the church for powerful and effective teaching to the church.â€ 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.
