Easter Sunday is a day when many “unchurched” people attend worship services, presenting a golden opportunity for pastors and church leaders to evangelize.
In a recent post for his website Pastors.com, Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren offers pastors and church leaders these four questions to contemplate in preparation for Easter Sunday.
1. What Message Will I Be Preaching?
The Saddleback leader understands that while pastors may likely preach about Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection, the story can be told in “many different ways and from many different angles.” So Warren shares some of the past messages that he’s preached on Easter Sunday, which include “Daring to Believe,” “How the Resurrection Changed Everything,” “The Mystery of God’s Plan — What on Earth Is God Doing?” “What It Means to Believe in Jesus” and “How to Be Certain You’re Going to Heaven.”
Warren also suggests that pastors’ Easter Sunday messages be the start of a series in order to hook attendees to return the following Sunday.
