Welcome to episode #36 of The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you to preach faithfully, clearly, and better.

In this episode, I want to talk to you about seven (7) steps to concluding your sermon… 

  1. Give a true conclusion.
  2. Only conclude once.
  3. Know your destination.
  4. Review the message.
  5. Issue a call to action.
  6. Run to the cross.
  7. Leave a good impression.


What do you think? What do you think makes an effective sermon conclusion? What are the keys to concluding a sermon properly?
