“It’s difficult to improve our preaching while pastoring… I’m making it easier.”
Most pastors wish their preaching was better but don’t know how to develop while on the job, I provide robust personalized coaching so they can dramatically improve while still fulfilling their responsibilities.
Each week we find ourselves scrambling to the pulpit with the best we have to offer. Thirty minutes later we walk out of the pulpit wishing we were better.
Athletes have coaches to help them reach their peak performance. Sadly, most preachers don’t do this. We rarely take the time and invest the energy to go back and sharpen our skills in preaching. So over time we get rusty and give up on ever really developing as preachers.
But preaching is crucially important. Through the teaching of Scripture our churches are anchored in God’s truth, encouraged in his grace, and reminded of his love. This is important! Paul encouraged Timothy to “fan into flame the gift you receive when I laid hands on you…(2 Tim. 1:6)” when discussing his protege’s teaching gift. If we want our preaching to reach deep into the hearts of people, we’ve got to be improving and getting better. We know this, but we simply don’t have the time to do it.

Most pastors wish their preaching was better but don’t know how to develop while on the job.
I provide robust personalized coaching so they can dramatically improve while still fulfilling their responsibilities.
The nuts and bolts of my coaching practice is what I call The Film Room.
Imagine a football coach sitting down, one-on-one with his defensive end on a Saturday morning after the game the night before. They put on the game film and the coach points out the things the player does well, and yes, the areas where improvement is necessary.
There is nothing, as a preacher, like seeing yourself on film to get an honest assessment. Having a coach next to you increases the learning dramatically. My video sermon reviews include an in-depth critique of a sermon, honest evaluation of strengths and weaknesses, a written summary including areas for improvement and a 1 1/2 hour video review session.
I have been training preachers in the Film Room for years.
It is personalized and robust (I don’t mess around).
After entering the process, people become better preachers.
Imagine less stress on Saturday evenings, more people actively engaged in your messages, life transformation taking root in your people, and the joy of seeing your gifting expand.
I would love to sit next to you in the Film Room.
About Pete Briscoe
Most coaches are former players. I am too. After preaching about 4000 times, I have experienced the ups and downs of juggling sermon preparation with pastoral responsibilities while serving as the senior pastor of Bent Tree Bible Fellowship in Carrollton, TX. for almost 30 years. During our time at Bent Tree, the church grew from 200 people to over 5000. I’ve also preached through Telling the Truth media ministry reaching over 1.2 million people every week. I’m a passionate student of preaching and love to develop preachers of all levels and experience. After a rich time of ministry at Bent Tree the Lord made it obvious to me and my wife Libby that it was time to make a bold move and step into a new season. For the most part I have stepped off the field and into the Film Room. I authentically love pastors, love the church, love preaching and I want to help.
