Honest Feedback

As pastors, do you ever ask someone you trust for an honest evaluation of your sermon? Oh, I realize that from time to time you may have someone in your congregation who has an all-too-eager bent to share with you everything that you could have said better as you preached your sermon. I’m not talking about snarky criticism.

No, I’m talking about helpful, forthright, yet kindly offered comments that will actually tip you off to some idiosyncratic speech patterns, or mispronunciations, or some other trait that is harming the effectiveness of your messages. Such honest feedback can significantly contribute to the advancement of your ministry on behalf of Christ.

I would like to explore this subject somewhat more thoroughly with you. Thus, I invite you to click the link on this page that will take you to my Sermon-Coach.com website. Then, I suggest that you click the left-hand menu item that will take you to the appropriate page so you can listen to Podcast 234.

I have given several examples on the Podcast that I truly believe will prove helpful to you. As ministers, we all want to improve. In fact, that’s what Sermon-Coach.com is all about: helping pastors develop life-transforming ministries. I hope you’ll take this opportunity to listen to what I have to say.

I continue to feel very grateful and am humbled by the many positive comments about my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is now available at Amazon.com by clicking here.

This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in the church where you serve as pastor.
