Thanks for using Sermon Design. This page will describe the basic process for using Sermon Design to build great sermons. It is under construction right now, but growing!

The app revolves around 5 different stages of the sermon development process:

1. Plan
2. Listen
3. Focus
4. Structure
5. Write

In reality, putting the process into strictly linear terms like that is a little bit of a distortion. One of the advantages of the Sermon Design app is that it allows you to work nonlinearly, going back and forth between the stages, tuning up the structure and even the focus, etc as you go. In that sense, I’m sure that I often discover more about the text (Listening) by wrestling with the processes of Focusing, Structuring and Writing. Sometimes what I “Write” leads me to shift the structure or the focus of the sermon.
