I was going through some old files this morning, and stumbled across “Keeping It Interesting as a Young Preacher,” by Philip Jensen. He gives seven tips.

1. When you preach, be as good as you can.

2. Fledgling preachers tend to be boring (but err on the side of being too heavy, rather than too light).

3. Work out how long you can preach for and still be interesting.

4. Avoid commentaries.

5. Find the logic units of the book; don’t just preach on chapters or paragraphs.

6. Young preachers should start with bigger sections.

7. Expository preaching is worth fighting for.

Read the rest to see how he explains each tip.
