What If Your Sermon Prep Process Is Holding You Back?

If you preach or teach regularly, you’ve probably developed tried-and-true methods for studying the text, crafting an outline or manuscript, and preparing a presentation or handout.

But here’s the thing, preachers: whether we realize it or not, we’re all hacking together a bunch of different tools that weren’t designed for the task we’re doing.

Word processors were created to solve the problems faced by writers, not preachers. Presentation tools like PowerPoint work great for business presentations, but they just weren’t made for the unique needs of a worship or teaching setting.

The time we spend retrofitting these programs to fit our sermon-prep needs could be used to go deeper into the text. Or discovering more about how the passage applies to our listeners’ lives.

What would a word processor built from the ground up for preachers and Bible teachers look like?

We created the Sermon Editor to answer that question. It’s included with a one-month free trial to Logos Cloud, and here’s why you should give it a try right now.

Built by preachers, for preachers

With the Sermon Editor, you can move seamlessly from studying with Logos Cloud’s tools and libraries, to writing your sermon.

Type a Scripture reference, and the Sermon Editor automatically fills in the entire passage. Build your outline point by point, and the Sermon Editor creates a handout for you to add to your worship bulletin. Start typing, and your sermon slides are created automatically. No more tedious copy and pasting or handing off files to a volunteer to prep the presentation: you can send it off in a click.

There’s lots more you can do with the Sermon Editor. Give it a test run with a one-month free trial to Logos Cloud.
