Greg Stier on Preachers, Your ‘Gospel Game’ is More Important Than Your Shoe Game

Recently I made a post on Instagram that got a ton of comments. I posted a picture of a guy in sneakers with these words, “I’ve heard thousands of sermons in my 30+ years of ministry. Out of them all, I’d say 30% of the time the preacher gives the gospel & 30% of those who give it, present it clearly. Many forget to even mention the cross. Preachers, forget your shoe game. Work on your gospel game.”

Judging by the comments on my Insta, the post must have hit a nerve.

But this post is not a shoe rant. It’s a gospel rant.

I don’t care whether you wear dress shoes, loafers, Vans, Air Jordans or Crocs when you preach. Just give the gospel clearly and compellingly every single time.

And, on second thought, don’t wear Crocs.
