Steps of Preaching

Greg Strand – February 10, 2014 Leave a comment

W.H. Griffith Thomas recommended to young preachers the following counsel regarding preaching: “Think yourself empty; read yourself full; write yourself clear; pray yourself keen; then into the pulpit, and let yourself go!”

Of course, all of this was undergirded by the ministry of the Holy Spirit and grounded in the Scriptures.

What are the steps you follow as you prepare to preach?

Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
