Why Pastors Need A Weekly Preview

By planning out our Sunday sermons ahead of time and taking stock of each new week with a Weekly Preview, pastors are able to stay focused and get through everything that needs doing before Sunday arrives!

If you’re a pastor, you know that it’s easy to get behind on all the things that need to be done. And if you aren’t careful, it can be even easier to fall into a slump where nothing gets done at all. But thankfully, there are some simple things we can do each week to help keep our focus on track and make sure we don’t miss anything important.

A Weekly Preview keeps you on track

A Weekly Preview is a great way to keep yourself on track. It’s also a great way to stay accountable, since you’ll be able to see at a glance how well (or not) your plans are coming together as the week progresses. In addition, having everything in one place will help ensure that nothing falls through the cracks and gives you confidence in your ability to get things done each week.

The weekly preview is a great way to stay on top of all the things you need to do. It helps you plan for the week ahead, and it keeps you from forgetting things. It also gives you confidence that nothing will slip through the cracks during your busy week.

A pastor’s life is full of meetings, sermons, pastoral care and other tasks that need our attention constantly. Without some kind of weekly review process in place, we can quickly get overwhelmed by an endless list of “to-dos.” A weekly preview gives us an opportunity each weekend to look at everything coming up during the upcoming week, so we can prioritise accordingly and know exactly what needs done at any given time (and why).

A weekly preview is a great way to plan ahead. Planning ahead helps you avoid being overwhelmed by the week’s tasks, and it also helps you be more efficient, productive and successful in your ministry.

Pastors who have been doing ministry for years have learned that if they don’t plan ahead then they will spend too much time at the last minute trying to prepare their messages. This leads them into stressful situations where they can’t get everything done as well as they would like it done or even at all!


If you’re a pastor, I hope this post will help you take a step back from your busy week and plan for the coming one. I know it’s not easy to find time for self-care, but if you can take advantage of even just one hour each week to reflect on what lies ahead, I think it will make all the difference.
