What’s the Preaching Collective?

The Preaching Collective represents a growing cadre of contributors from across the Wesleyan connection committed to providing you with some of the experienced preaching help you may not have learned in seminary.

Each week you’ll have the opportunity to view new content that will provide you with tools for your preaching toolbox, including practical tips for preaching in different situations, sermon series ideas and outlines, wisdom from veteran preachers and professors, and a host of other resources that you can read and use with your congregation or share with other preachers in your network. The Preaching Collective will be a place where preachers can share ideas, ask questions, get advice, and learn from one another.

Who’s it for?

Preachers. Plain and simple.
