Preaching, Teaching, Conferences & Workshops

I love the camaraderie, the laughing, the fellowship of others who know the unique demands and privileges we shepherds share. I’ve spoken to lots of different groups but I connect best with pastors and ministry students. They’re my kind of people.

I speak on a lot of different pastoral topics—like the care of souls, the church as home, the pastoral long haul, and preaching with imagination. I also enjoy new assignments. Seminars and workshops are one thing and preaching is another. I welcome the opportunity to preach to ministry colleagues from Scripture. Some texts I have used are:

  • Acts 18:1-17 – A Rough Business
  • Luke 10:38-42 – When Not to Serve Jesus
  • 1 Peter 5:1-4 – Good Shepherds
  • Psalm 16 – Medicine for the Pastoral Shakes
  • Genesis 32:22-32 – The Uneasy Blessing of the God Who Won’t Let Go
  • 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 – The Trumpet Call of God


Many of my sermons are available to subscribers of PreachingToday.com

"Lee really connects with pastors and leaders alike. With decades of experience as a pastor with a shepherd's heart he humbly shares his successes and failures alike. Lee has so many one line nuggets of wisdom that he interweaves through personal stories and ministry applications. My pastors and leaders left refreshed, renewed and strengthened by Lee's ministry."

"Pastors are inundated with resources on how to be a better everything: preacher, leader, fundraiser, strategist. It's a long list. What we mostly lack is someone who speaks honestly, humbly, wisely about the heart of our calling: to be a shepherd. Lee does that, and does it well. He is a rare gift. He is one of us who knows a bit more than us, and who is glad to share. I am better shepherd because of Lee's ministry."
