Sermon camp

Based on our popular bootcamps and our eCourse Craft an Effective Sermon by Friday, this virtual camp begins with a one-week, accelerated introduction to our 5-day process and continues with weekly check-ins for six weeks thereafter. Alongside a small group of participants, you’ll work with a coach to apply BsP’s guiding principles to your work. By the end, you’ll have established a new process that integrates your spirituality and preaching while improving your skills.

I believe Backstory Preaching can do nothing but make you a better preacher. Not just in style but in content. It integrates the fact-gathering and spiritual practice that preaching really is.
