How did this make an impact?

  1. Very good information on writing an effective title and on preparing sermons. Thank you for sharing this information.

  2. Praise God, Ptr Rick is an instrument of Gods ministry. I bought some of his books

  3. So true! I’ll send this article to the webmaster of my church in Switzerland. It’s always a problem creating the right titles. Having clear rules like here above is a real grace. Thank you so much Pastor Warren.

  4. Well said! I especially agree with your first point, about making the title of the sermon stand out. Unfortunately many pastors often overlook that little detail!

  6. Dear Pastor Rick,

    Hi a blessed day to you. Im a born again christian and a worker in a church in Dubai UAE .
    By God’s grace I was privilege to be part of leadership, my questions is it is rebellion if you resigned from leadership?

    • Maila, the answer to this is not necessarily a ‘one-size fits all’ response. Hebrews 10:25 tells us ‘Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching.’ So first of all, it is important if you decide to step down from leadership to attend and serve somewhere. Also, we are called to fulfill our part in the mission of God – to work toward what Matthew 28 talks about in ‘making disciples’ (see With that said, sometimes we do experience seasons where we step away from leadership. My advice is 1.) to cover our decision in prayer. 2.) Search your heart for your motives in stepping down “God, am I being selfish & not enduring or is my motive pure such as to spend more time discipling your family.
      Ask God if he would have you persevere or if he would have you step down.
      Hope this helps
