The Collective/+ is for you if you’ve been wanting to:

  • hear the Scriptures with new ears

  • finish your sermons earlier in the week so you can have your weekends back

  • establish a sermon prep process you can rely on week after week

  • craft better sermons so your preaching truly connects with your listeners

  • talk through the quandaries of preaching in this cultural climate

  • be part of an ecumenical community of preachers who "get it"

  • or simply rekindle your love of preaching

Members say their sermons are better, and their listeners can tell.

They feel more connected to God and part of a community.

They’re less stressed about their preaching.

They’re more joyful about their preaching!

There’s literally no other preaching community like this.

The Backstory Preaching Collective/+ is the first and only online community dedicated to help you craft better sermons faster, while integrating the process with your spirituality and connecting you to other preachers.

There’s a lot in store for our second year! Don’t miss out!

The Collective/+ helps sermon prep time start on a Monday morning with other inspiring preachers and finish before the weekend. Instead of a solitary, anxious, two-step task of “exegesis and write,” sermon prep time is five clear doable steps that result in effective sermons. The Collective/+ has enabled a transformation of my approach to preaching and ministry in ways I had hoped a sabbatical or D.Min. would.
