Rethinking How We Preach for the Digital Age
Show Notes

In our digital age, the way people consume content has radically shifted. Yet many churches still deliver monologue-style sermons designed for a reality that no longer exists.

I recently interviewed David Murrow, an online preaching coach, who argues: "Preaching stopped working 20 years ago." As audiences migrated to social media and bite-sized videos, the traditional sermon format has struggled to capture attention.

Murrow's fascinating proposed solution? A "hybrid preaching" model that blends shareable video segments into live services, mirroring how Jesus communicated profound truths through 38-second parables and object lessons.

While acknowledging concerns about online content undermining in-person community, Murrow provides thought-provoking perspectives on adapting the timeless gospel through new mediums and formats, just as the church has done throughout history.

Whether you're a pastor, church leader, or Christian wondering how to most effectively share your faith today, you won't want to miss Murrow's insights.
