Guest Preaching and Weekly Preaching

You might not be asked to preach in Middle Earth (a.k.a. New Zealand) like Jim Savastio, but many preachers will serve as a guest preacher at some point in their ministry. No matter how often you preach as a guest, there are also unique joys and trials of a weekly preaching ministry at your own church.

Here are some questions that come up in this conversation:

  • What are the differences between guest preaching and preaching at your own church?
  • What challenges and temptations attend guest preaching?
  • How do you think through accepting invitations to preach outside of your church?
  • How do you decide what to preach about when you are a guest?
  • What are the challenges and pleasures of preaching in your own church week after week?
