Free Sermon Outlines

These sermon outlines are included on a site about pastor burnout because burnout is perhaps felt most dramatically when you start to prepare sermons for Sunday. The weekly grind to prepare original and meaningful bible sermons is probably the heaviest weight the pastor carries. That's why I felt it important to include a section filled with free sermons, including some children's sermons.

These sermon outlines are just that - outlines. They are not full text sermons. That's intentional. The hardest part of sermon preparation is often just getting started. So these bible sermons do the hard part. But I didn't want full text sermons because they take your own voice away. And it's essential that you preach with your own voice.

These are of course free outlines. But I would ask a favor. For every outline or two you use, would you add one of your own? Just fill in the form below and click submit.

To see sermons that others have submitted, scroll down below the form.

How To Submit Your Sermon

Submitting your outlines is easy. All you need to include is the following.

  1. The passage(s) of Scripture needed for the sermon.
  2. A one or two sentence summary of the sermon.
  3. Your outline points.
  4. Include a one sentence description with each point.
  5. Optional: add any special illustrations you used.

That's all there is to it. And if you've been preaching for very long, you probably have at least dozens if not hundreds of preaching outlines stored on that hard drive of yours...

Speaking of which - when was the last time you backed up your documents!? I learned the hard way that I need to back everything up or lose it. Hey, it's a preachers prerogative to digress a little!
