WRITTEN RESOURCES
Here are a few written resources specifically on preaching that we think might be helpful. They have either been prepared by us or by our friends. In addition to these resources on preaching, there are two online journals of which you should be aware: the 9Marks Journal and the Briefing. Both of these journals frequently contain resources on preaching, but both also contain some of the most helpful articles on church ministry out there. Seriously. Check them out.
