For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ.

Sermons. One of the top priorities for pastors is preaching powerful sermons. Week to week, you create sermons to connect your church with God's Word and to disciple them to a closer relationship with Him.
