As of July 2015, SermonCentral offers sermons and accompanying media downloads to help religious clergy teach biblical concepts. The website provides an extensive database of images, videos, motion backgrounds and music to illustrate the principles in the sermons, and full preaching bundles are available with prepackaged sermons and media.
SermonCentral markets its website as the largest sermon research database in the world, hosting more than 150,000 nondenominational resources and serving more than 250,000 church leaders every week. Although many resources are free, the website has a SermonCentral PRO membership option that grants access to a larger resource database. The resources cover all aspects of presenting a sermon, including planning a thematic series and choosing content for specific audiences. SermonCentral also contains full online texts of popular Bible translations, such as the King James Version and New International Version.
The website provides ready-made PowerPoint presentations on relevant topics, such as fostering generosity and avoiding false teachings. A collection of informative articles helps educate clergy on preaching improvement topics, such as sermon timing and self-evaluation, and counseling topics, such as nurturing single congregation members. A portion of SermonCentral’s resources comes from users, who are featured on the website’s contributor section. Many of the resources have ratings scales, so visitors can look for content from their favorite contributors.
