The Gospel Coalition 2013 Michigan Regional Conference


In this 46-minute session, Mike Bullmore, senior pastor of CrossWay Community Church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, unpacks five challenges to preaching well that can pop up in the heart of a preacher, and then provides a counterpoint to overcome those challenges. Mike Bullmore taught at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School as Associate Professor of Homiletics and Pastoral Theology for fifteen years.

The temptations that creep up in our lives as we prepare sermons each Sunday can erode our ministries and make it difficult for our congregations to trust us to teach God’s Word. As you look at your own ministry, keep your eyes open and searching in every moment for the temptation to turn the focus of your ministry back on yourself, rather than on the God who called you to preach.
