As 2009 comes to a close, I wanted to recognize those preachers that have influenced me the most during the year. I have been blessed to have had 2 wonderful pastors this year. Both of them communicate the truths of Scripture with passion and clarity. Others have also strengthened me by their preaching primarily through the internet. iTunes has provided us with a wealth of resources for listening to good preaching.
Here is the list of those who most influenced me. They are listed in alphabetical order and not necessarily in order of influence.
- Matt Chandler, The Village Church – Dallas area, TX
- Mark Driscoll, Mars Hill Church – Seattle, WA
- Tim Hight, Main Street Baptist Church – Christiansburg, VA
- John MacArthur, Grace Community Church – Sun Valley, CA
- Daniel Montgomery, Sojourn Community Church – Louisville, KY
- John Piper, Bethlehem Baptist Church – Minneapolis, MN
- Jimmy Scroggins, First Baptist Church – West Palm Beach, FL
- R.C. Sproul, Ligonier Ministries – Sanford, FL
- Brian Vickers – Southern Baptist Theological Seminary – unfortunately I haven’t heard Brian preach this year, but we worship together on Sundays and solve the world’s problems over coffee during the week.
