Three Sermon Podcasts You Will Enjoy

Let me say right up front that it was hard to narrow this list to 3 so I’m sure I’ll share a few more in coming weeks (I’ve mentioned a few of them at the bottom of this post if you want to check them out too). I listen to about 20 different podcasts on a regular basis (I know, I’m weird like that). The Carolinas are represented well in this list as 1 is from South Carolina and the other 2 are from Charlotte, NC. I’m going to exclude my preacher’s podcast (Rick Atchley @ The Hills) from this list since I listen to him live every week. If you don’t you should add him to your playlist (I highly recommend his recent series on Revelation, probably the best I’ve ever heard on that book). So, without any further ado, here are the 3 I think you would enjoy listening to on a regular basis:

Perry is the founder and senior pastor of NewSpring Church in South Carolina (a multi-campus move of God on a mission to reach more than 100,000 people in SC). He is a gifted communicator and teacher, convicted about speaking the truth as plainly as possible (he can be very blunt and his messages are full of humor and truth). God has given him a vision and a passion for helping people meet Jesus, and each week he shares God’s word and its practical application in our daily lives. His first book, UNLEASH, is also a great read. Check this series out first: Adam & Eve. His next series that begins on July 14 is called REDNECK.

Steven is the founder and lead pastor of Elevation Church based in Charlotte, NC. He is also the New York Times® Best Selling author of Greater and the national bestseller Sun Stand Still. You’ll enjoy his books and messages. Check this series out first: The Expectation Gap. For a unique message that is compiled from talks Steven has done around the world this past year check out Pound the Ground.

Jonathan leads the liars, dreamers, and misfits of Renovatus: A Church for People Under Renovation, in Charlotte, NC, where he lives with his wife Amanda. He is the author of the book Prototype. I absolutely enjoy listening to Jonathan. I discovered his podcast one day when Steven Furtick mentioned him being his “favorite preacher.” He might become your favorite too. Check this series out first: A Song of Ascent (a series on David)

UPDATE, 9.11.13: Jonathan started a new series this past week called PARABLE. You really should check it out. Here is a description of this series: Jesus was the master storyteller, and you are invited to come and sit by the fire to listen to his stories.  These stories are full of wonder, intrigue, enchantment, truth, beauty…and layers upon layers of deep meaning.  These are startlingly human, three-dimensional stories that bring the kingdom of heaven into color in our real lives.  They are stories from a time that is not our own about people we do not know–and yet ultimately stories about us.  

You can watch or listen to all 3 of these guys from their church’s website or search for them on your favorite podcast APP (by the way, these guys preach anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour plus at times).

Your turn… What are some of your favorite sermon podcasts?

Here are some of my honorable mentions that I’ll say more about in future posts: Andy Stanley, Judah Smith, Craig Groeschel, Dave Clayton, Toby Slough, Chris Hodges, Robert Morris, John Ortberg, Erwin McManus, Mark Batterson, Jonathan Storment, Matt Chandler, and Tim Keller to name a few more (and make sure you check out Rick Atchley from my home church).

Three Leadership Podcasts You Should Listen To

Leaders are learners! With that in mind here are 3 podcasts you should listen to on a regular basis:

Michael Hyatt is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World (Thomas Nelson). His blog focuses on “intentional leadership.” Spend a few moments browsing around his site, you’ll find lots of great resources there. His weekly podcast is designed to help you live with more passion, work with greater focus, and lead with extraordinary influence.

Andy Stanley is the founder of North Point Ministries (NPM). Each Sunday, more than 33,000 people attend NPM’s five Atlanta-area churches. Over two million of Andy’s messages are accessed from North Point websites monthly, including both leadership and sermon content. You’ll definitely want to spend some time looking around Andy’s website where you can access free content, leadership resources, and upcoming events—all designed to help leaders go further, faster. Here is a direct link to the Andy Stanley Leadership Podcast via iTunes. By the way, you’ll also want to listen to his weekly messages from North Point (always relevant and practical).

Perry Noble is the founding & Senior Pastor of NewSpring Church, a multi-campus move of God on a mission to reach 100,000 people in South Carolina with the Gospel. You can find lots of great resources on Perry’s website. Here is a direct link to the Perry Noble Leadership Podcast via iTunes (his most recent podcast is called: LESSONS LEARNED AT CHICK-FIL-A). Perry is one of my favorite communicators to listen to and watch (his messages are powerful, convicting, expressive, and full of humor). You’ll also want to listen to the messages he delivers each weekend at NewSpring Church. Trust me, you’ll enjoy them — Perry’s messages.

Your turn… What three leadership podcasts would you recommend for us to check out?
