One of the free resources that I would love to share with you is a basic outline of messages that I have found to be very effective. Feel free to use the outline in your local church. However, don’t just use it as a last minute substitute for your lack of preparation. Rather, study it and make the changes that God leads you to make for it to fit your local situation.
