Steve MaySTEVE MAY has been a pastor to pastors for more than 20 years, actively involved in mentoring preachers and teachers to become more effective communicators of the gospel. His sermon notes and preaching materials are used by Christian leaders throughout the world.

Steve has served as a pastor, worship leader, publishing executive, church-planter, and founder of an evangelical outreach ministry in Rio de Janeiro.

Today Steve’s ministry is focused on working with people who are called to communicate the gospel: coaching them to preach more effectively, and providing them with resources to develop sermons that strengthen believers and grow healthy churches.

Steve is author of a dozen books. He has also written hundreds of articles for ministry leaders, working in recent years with Christianity Today.

When it comes to preaching, Steve says,

“The sermon will never lose its power. Nothing will ever surpass the impact of teaching the life-changing principles of Scripture in a straight-forward manner. Preaching the Bible is still the greatest tool for church growth, and the greatest tool for changing lives.

“Even in this age of video — especially in this age of video — a message well prepared and delivered face-to-face has greater impact.

“Most of all, preaching the Bible is still the greatest tool for church growth, and the greatest tool for changing lives.”

Steve is the editor and publisher of the Preaching Library, as well as a speaker, musician, and author. Steve is also the founder of Project Brasil, a ministry based in Rio de Janeiro.
