My friends at the Christian Church of Jasper held an event called "Preacher to Preacher" yesterday.  Darrel Land and his team did a great job hosting.

Ben Merold and Bob Russell shared their wisdom and experience with about 70 preachers.  It was so encouraging to listen to these men speak!!

Ben Merold
A few quotes from Ben:

"Is the message you're preaching good news?"

"What about the thief on the cross?  If you can get yourself nailed to a cross beside Jesus and He tells you that you'll be with Him, then that's fine.  Otherwise, the Bible says repent and be baptized." 

"Does my sermon build faith and hope?"

"Don't tell it like it is, tell it like it can be."

"We stand between the living and the dead." 

Bob Russell
A few quotes from Bob:

"New Testament preaching is biblically based." 

"I figured I'd speak and let my home church worry about it."  (Joke in reference to speaking about Jesus at a high school graduation in his home town. lol) 

"New Testament preaching is a logical proclamation of the absolute truths of the Gospel and is intentionally evangelistic.  It motivates to repentance and transformation." 

"Preaching matters."
