The PPGR Preaching System not only saves you time in sermon prep by giving you a step-by-step guide for the process, but it also enables you to craft remarkably clear, focused messages that magnify God's grace in Jesus by expounding the biblical text, addressing the human condition, tethering the passage, theme, and problem to the cross, and providing responsive, redemptive application that is grace-motivated and Spirit-empowered.

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi, my name is McKay Caston.

Although I now teach homiletics in seminary, I served as a local church pastor and planter for over twenty-six years and understand the unique pain points of a preaching ministry.

For some of us, sermon stress is an ever-present emotional weight.

Every week, we're expected to craft a fresh, focused, well-organized message with expository acumen, theological depth, and insightful, relevant, practical application delivered with clarity and energy that keeps folks from looking at the clock.

Contrary to what some think, pastors do not just fish and play golf between Sundays. ๐Ÿ˜…

There is a lot to do.

In addition to creating sermons, we lead team meetings, facilitate small groups, disciple, counsel, participate in community events, plan ministry, respond to countless emails, and navigate unexpected crises.

The list goes on.

It's sad to admit, but after a long week of daily sermon prep, I still found myself up at 1:00 a.m. on many Saturday nights.

Anxious and frustrated that I'd been working on the message all week but still unclear about how to present the material, I would become confused and desperate.

Can you relate?

I think any honest pastor can.

I began thinking that there must be a better way.

And there is.

When I transitioned from a preaching pastor to a theology and homiletics professor, I created the sermon prep and delivery system I wish I'd had thirty years ago.

Not just a system, but a system that helps pastors save time crafting focused, clear, biblical, redemptive (cross-tethered) messages that result in distinctively grace-motivated, Spirit-empowered application.

Thanks to homiletical influences like Bryan Chapell and Tim Keller, I didn't have to start from scratch. ๐Ÿ™‚

My goal was to create a message prep system that would enable pastors to have their Sunday sermons ready to preach by Wednesday.

But it gets even better.

  • I wanted the system to save you a lot of time and dramatically increase sermon focus and clarity.

  • The system needed to produce relevant and personalized application that flowed from the text and was motivated and empowered by the grace of living in union with Jesus rather than the default moralism that plagues so many sermons.

  • I wanted a system that would provide a template for the process so that you would feel like the message was half-written before you even started.

Imagine how much sermon stress that would alleviate.

Imagine how much flexibility and increased bandwidth that would give you for scheduling appointments, ministry lunches, and taking time off... without the lingering stress of an unfinished sermon.

How much free time could be gained for taking a walk or playing with your kids?

What would it feel like to have your Saturday back?

But the system is not primarily pragmatic.

My deep desire is to help pastors preach the fullness of God's grace in the risen and reigning Jesus by tethering every message to the cross.

My problem was I didn't have a reliable preaching system.

Don't get me wrong. Sermon prep is hard work.

It is so hard that to sustain a long-term preaching ministry, we need a way to focus the process.

Think rifle vs shotgun.

Essentially, we need a system that is so effective that it practically writes half of our sermon before we even start.

It's called the PPGR Preaching System.

With this simple system, I will teach you how to...

  • Craft a complete sermon outline in under an hour,
  • Prepare a sermon with a step-by-step approach,
  • Complete your sermon by as early as Tuesday afternoon (allowing it to marinate all week... and allowing you to take a real day or two off),
  • Dramatically increase sermon focus and clarity,
  • Generate relevant, cross-tethered application for every listener,
  • Think movement rather than main points,
  • Talk like TED,
  • Speak so that unbelievers understand,
  • Value a simple, clear sermon more than a complex, confusing sermon,
  • Avoid distractions in sermon prep,
  • Use one anchor illustration versus many illustrations,
  • Bathe the entire process in prayer, and
  • Enjoy sermon prep more than ever before.

With version 2.0, the entire system has been expanded and updated, with over forty lessons and bonus resources.

A tremendously helpful resource. Working through the PPGR points helps me get to the heart of what I want to communicate. And what a blessing it is to me as a preacher to be led to the Cross again so that I can help my hearers do the same.
