Mark Messmore has a passion for teaching and preaching. He also has a passion for teaching people how to preach! In his early 20s, God began showing him the need for a simple, easy-to-follow model for people learning how to prepare and present a sermon. He thought his ideas would eventually end up in a university-level classroom, but it turns out that the Lord had other plans. He recently released his book, Simple Preaching Prep, to help train leaders in the church—whether as Sunday School teachers, youth group volunteers, or pastors—to deliver compelling messages. In today’s episode, we’re diving right in with Mark on why letting other people stand in the pulpit on a Sunday is a good thing, what keeps pastors from asking other people to preach a message, and what you should look for when identifying who might be up for the task. Plus, he’ll let us in on some of his best tricks for preparing a great message! Enjoy!Show Notes: the show (

Dale is a man with a powerful calling to help weary and worn pastors and church leaders.

He has been in ministry for 40 years. In July 2018, he accepted the position as the Executive Director of 95Network, and in September of 2020, he published his first book Stalled: Hope and Help for Pastors Who Thought They'd Be There By Now. His years of ministry have grown a deep love for small and midsize congregations — the backbone of the American church. He believes in the mission of 95Network, not only because it equips small churches to thrive, but also because it connects weary church leaders with friends and partners who care.

Dale and his wife Gina have been married 39 years, have three daughters, two sons- in-law, and two awesome grandchildren!
