Question of the day: preachers.

I know technically we’re not supposed to play “favorites,” but we’re humans and it’s in our nature to rebel a little. Don’t judge me – you do it to.

I’m giving you a break this week – you won’t even have to really think at all for this one. So answer me this question… because I like to listen to good preaching and am willing to try out a couple preachers I may never have heard of or at least listened to before.

I’ll go first and tell you some of my favorites, then you leave me a comment below with some of your faves.

  1. Evangelist Brian McBride
  2. Bro. Roger Henson
  3. Evangelist C.T. Townsend
  4. Evangelist Jason Kendrick
  5. Dr. Keith Gomez
  6. Dr. Sam Gipp
  7. Dr. R.B. Ouellette
  8. Dr. Phil Kidd
  9. Pastor Rick Williams
  10. Pastor Ken Graham
  11. Dr. Jon Kenkins
  12. Evangelist Dan Martin
  13. Dr. Jack Schaap

Who are your favorite preachers? Leave as few or as many as you want.
And if you have a favorite sermon that you’ve heard, leave the title of it with the name of whoever preached it.
Better yet, if you have a link to an .mp3 or video format of it, leave that as well!

Note: If you’ve never used Sermon Audio or Sermin Index, I encourage you to check them out — they’re awesome (and free)!  :]

    • thankful and blessed to see my pastor on the list (Mark Lawless)

      For anyone interested, you can hear more of his preaching at: “The Concerned Christian” is one of the last messages to be added, it is excellent for Christians facing the great falling away today.

  6. I’ve been blessed to have many excellent pastors with hearts of real Christian love. As to preaching, though, my nod has to go to Dr. Mark Rutland.

    Mark consistently said the most in one sermon of any minister I’ve ever heard (and that’s saying quite a lot). He was loving, filled with joy, had an unstoppable sense of humor – and always introduced his wife as “The most beautiful woman in the world.”

    He later went on to be president of Southeastern University and now is president of Oral Roberts University.

    • I would like to add
      Jerry Vines
      Vance Havner
      Oliver B. Green
      Lester Roloff (even though I don’t agree 100%)
      John Hagee (yes, we differ theologically in some areas, but he’s a powerful preacher)

    • Carla J Walker

      Great choices A. C. Baker! And go figure they are from different denominations & ethnicities.

  11. Billy Graham, Chuck Swindol, Dr. David Jeremiah, and my pastor, Christy Shaw (Turning Point Church of Lenewee County).

  12. Paul Washer and Leonard Ravenhill. A large portion of my YouTube channel favorites ( consist of Paul Washer videos.

    Also: for a really, really good Ravenhill video, check out my blog (click on my name); I just posted one on there. Good stuff.

    Thanks for this opportunity, Heather!

  18. Christian Sermons has come out many times that has affirmed the
    Holy Spirit has touched many other. Christian Sermons are indeed a means to
    express at least to an extent the power of Jesus Christ.

    Christian Sermons can convict you and almost force you
    to come to terms with the ability of Jesus Christ. Many Years ago I prayed and prayed for God to
    show me the way, the light, and the path for my motive.
    How God could bless others through me. Enoch is an
    outstanding example of man that walked with God and was taken or interpreted.
    Christian Sermons hopes I have had and validated the response to a lot of prayers.
    Even though you love God you may very well (if definitely) still
    sin not but you can do the best that you can to prevent temptations that lead to sin.

    I come from a family that preaches the Gospel and Christian
    Sermons are a wonderful way to spread the word of God.

    It truly is crystal clear for the Bible. The King James
    version is what is used as Biblical “calibration” but as long as you understand this you’ve come a really long way from your everyday non believer. Genuine Christian Sermons will always verify or validate this.

  19. My favorite preacher is James Knox. One of my favorite series of messages is called Happy Holidays. I have learned more from Bro. Knox’s Bible based preaching than any other preacher. If you want preaching that is Bible based, he is excellent.

  20. I have two favorites. I would say Mark Lawless of Battlefield Baptist Church in Kentucky is my favorite. One of his good messages it titled “Make Believe Christisns.” It is on Sermon Audio. Also we have been a fan of James Knox, pastor of Bible Believers Baptist in Deland, Florida for many years. He has a series called “Sound Doctrine” that is SO good.
