The Sermon Project

In a nutshell, The Sermon Project aims to give life back to transformative voices of the church’s past.

The project hires professional performers to record studio quality sermons in audio format and offer them free to the Church. We hope you will use these for personal or congregational formation and evangelism learning how they shared their faith, education (how they applied the gospel to their own lives), bible study (how God spoke to His people in the past) and general interest (history, theology, ecclesiology, pneumatology etc). We pray you walk away with a renewed respect and love for The Word of God, and your faith community grows. We believe God put this project on our hearts for a reason and that NOW is the time to hear these voices.

We began the project with the words of Jesus: The Sermon on the Mount. But with a twist. With the help of academics and some rabbis, we emphasized the Jewishness of Jesus. It’s stays true to the original, but adds a new perspective.

Following that, our initial theme for the Sermon Project was JUSTICE. How did past preachers – often living in the face of injustice – preach about the justice of the Lord? How did preaching about God’s Justice offer hope to the nations, and a challenge to the Church?

Our next focus is sermons from the Middle Ages. These sermons range from Augustine and Aelfric to Wulfstan and Wyclif, and we hope you will be surprised how contemporary the issues are as pastors struggle to guide their flocks in faith; sometimes humorous, sometimes pleading, sometimes frustrated and angry – but always concerned with the love of God. We’ve tried to update all language in this latest series to reflect a more modern sound, and are adding group discussion questions to foster community.

The Sermon Project is an Imago project.

This project is able to proceed at a consistent but relaxed pace. In an ideal world, one foundation steps in to fund the entire project at initiation, but often God’s desire is to weave many donors/partners together through a common kingdom-minded project. Please prayerfully consider donating generously to the project.
