** Update: You can see the video on this website – SBC Voices
James Merritt preached tonight at the Southern Baptist Pastor’s Conference. He began his sermon by mentioning his website PastorsEdge. He encouraged his listeners to download his free Father’s Day sermon – illustrations and PowerPoint included – and use it this Sunday with his blessings. He assured them it was not plagiarism and they had his full permission.
The prices at Pastor’s Edge are very reasonable. For $30 you get a complete sermon series with all of the following:
The complete sermon manuscript in Word ® and as a PDF. A complete PowerPoint® presentation that highlights each main point. A beautifully illustrated listening sheet that can be easily duplicated for your congregation. The only thing left for the pastor to do is prepare the message. All of the supporting files are ready to go!
If you are on a tighter budget, you can get the single sermons for $8 with artwork or without for only $5.50.
There has been some talk lately about using borrowed sermons.
