Pro Preacher is a site dedicated to helping pastors preach better.
Preaching is one of the most important elements of a church. Studies have shown that 90% of church visitors decide whether or not to return to based only on the preacher.
This makes preaching your most important job as a pastor.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? (Romans 10:14 NIV)
You are a steward of the Word of God. The Bible is clear that at the end of our lives, we will all be held accountable for the words we spoke (James 3:1). Preaching is not a calling to be taken lightly.
Pro Preacher exists to provides tools and tips focused on helping every pastor become the best preacher they can be so that the Church can reach more people for Jesus.
Your age or experience level doesn’t matter. We can all learn to preach better. Are you with me?
Who Am I?
Hi, my name is Brandon Hilgemann. I am the husband of an incredible wife, and father of two amazing kids.
I’m also a pastor. And I love preaching.
I have served in multiple churches around the country from some of the largest and fastest growing to new church plants.
For the last decade I have been on a journey to become the best preacher I can possibly be.
I have preached multiple sermons a week for years. I have worked in different churches absorbing everything I could. I have read every preaching book, blog post and article I can get my hands on. I listened to thousands of sermons. And I’m still learning.
In November of 2012, I started a blog about preaching to write my thoughts from this journey and decided to name it ProPreacher.com. Then I told no one.
I didn’t tell anyone because, honestly, I was afraid what people might think. But I also wanted to see if what I wrote would even resonate with people.
I didn’t want people to visit my blog because they knew me or I asked them to. I wanted people to come because the content was so compelling and helpful that they wanted to come back for more.
To my surprise, people showed up, came back, and shared it with their friends.
I am blown away by the fact that the ideas and principles I have learned and shared on ProPreacher.com have been read by thousands of pastors around the world.
I don’t pretend to be the world’s foremost preaching guru. I still have a lot to learn. However, my hope is that the things I have learned and continue to learn will help you as much as they have helped me.
Thanks for taking this ride with me.
