The eleven sermon outlines in this book are the first eleven messages I preached to the church in 2011. God used these messages to give the church direction and to set our congregation on a path of growth—spiritually, numerically, and financially. I am thrilled to report, for the first time in more than 34 years of full‐time ministry, we kept nearly 85% of the total number added to our church rolls in 2011. In previous years we have kept, on average, about 25% of new converts. This has been a banner year.
