Pastor Charles Stanley Reveals Some of His Preaching Secrets
Charles Stanley revealed to pastors last week some of the secrets and practices that have helped him become one of the most influential and widely heard preachers in the world.
Above anything else, Stanley said he prioritizes his personal relationship with the Lord. “If that’s not right, nothing else is going to be right,” he said during a preachbettersermons.com webcast last Thursday.
“You have to be disciplined,” he stressed, adding, “a man can preach no better than he prays.”
Stanley has been preaching for 55 years and currently leads First Baptist Church in Atlanta as well as In Touch Ministries. His messages are broadcast around the world in more than 50 languages.
Though a “televangelist” in one sense, the long-time pastor does not ask for donations during the television and radio broadcasts. He explained in the webcast that in the 1980s while he was preparing for an Easter sermon, he realized that God could shut him down at any moment and that he’d have nothing to say.
“God said ‘you must not ask for any money on air; you trust me; you listen to me. I’ll decide how far this ministry goes,” Stanley recalled.
