I did an interview with Brian Larson of Preaching Today a little while back on “How-To Preaching”. I never really considered what we do at Community Christian Church and in our NewThing Network to be “how-to” preaching. On the other hand (as you can read in the interview) I can’t imagine standing up in front of our church and not challenging people to better live out the Jesus mission. The interview is with myself and Colin Smith, Senior Pastor of Arlington Heights Evangelical Church. Here is the first of 3 parts to this interview titled, “If It’s Not How-To, It’s Not Preaching”. Check it out and tell me what you think.
Brian Larson and I have been e-mailing back and forth and he wants to do another interview with myself and Tim Sutherland, our teaching team leader on Preaching Today. The topic will be collaborative team teaching which is a chapter in our book “What’s The BIG IDEA?” that comes out next year.
