Author Introduction

I am a pastor who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit and so some of my sermon outlines point to the empowering and gifting that comes with this experience. If you belong to a denomination which does not teach the Baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience independent of salvation, you will still find many of these outlines to be useful as you preach about the basics concerning our Lord Jesus Christ.

The material in both books can be used in multiple ways. In addition to preaching, the outlines can be used by Sunday School teachers, home or small group leaders, and in personal meditations.  Each book contains well over 100 Scripture references so all the material is Biblically based.

I pray that you will be inspired and made joyful by these sermon outlines. Several times during my 27 years of preaching and teaching, I entered a dry spell and needed inspiration and encouragement. Preachers, pastors, and teachers all get writer's block, and it is my prayer that these sermon outlines will help you through such difficult times. May the Lord bless you with new insight, aspirations, and greater faith in Jesus as you use these sermon outlines to minister to God’s people.

Pastor Jerome A. Jochem M.S., M.A.
