Preaching Unleashed will feature new sermons from Jud Wilhite and Rick Rusaw.
Loveland, CO (PRWEB) December 3, 2009
Group Publishing has been pleased to offer Preaching Plus as a resource for pastors for several years. However, in assessing directions for the future Group has reluctantly come to the conclusion that it cannot put the emphasis on Preaching Plus that it deserves. In order to take the best care of Group's faithful members it is selling Preaching Plus to BP Resources, who has already begun enhancing it to make it an even more valuable resource.
Effective January 1, Preaching Plus (preachingplus.com) will become Preaching Unleashed (preachingunleashed.com). The site will feature new sermons from Jud Wilhite and Rick Rusaw—and they will both be providing new messages every month. Wilhite is pastor of Central Christian Church in Las Vegas, Nevada—the 11th largest church in the United States. He is also known as the host of Catalyst West and the author of multiple books including Eyes Wide Open and Uncensored Grace. Rusaw is pastor of LifeBridge Christian Church in Longmont, Colorado, frequent conference speaker, and author of The Externally Focused Church and The Externally Focused Life. In addition, Preaching Unleashed will add more than a thousand new illustrations and quotations to the Preaching Plus collection, as well as hundreds of royalty-free downloadable images that have never been seen before! They’re also enhancing the content with a forum where members can discuss ideas, tips, and struggles...from exegesis to "Where's Jesus".
BP Resources founder, Brian Proffit, was a senior pastor before coming to Group Publishing as senior acquisitions editor for pastoral resources and published such books as Preaching magazine’s book of the year, Refining Your Style. He helped launch Church Volunteer Central, and as senior editor for church leadership has published The Inside Track monthly as well as the Smart Ministry newsletter. Because they are related products, we have also sold Smart Ministry to BP Resources. The newsletter will continue to be the invaluable weekly free resource for church leaders, and now Preaching Unleashed members will have access to the hundreds of articles published in previous issues of Smart Ministry.
All Preaching Plus memberships will be transferred to Preaching Unleashed. However for privacy reasons we cannot share any credit card information with BP Resources so members will have to renew their membership manually. Please contact info (at) preachingunleashed (dot) com with any questions.
