Spurgeon on Finding a Preacher to Fill a Chapel

Posted on

Spurgeon often recounted a time when a deacon south a minister for his church and he asked Spurgeon to find him a minister to “fill a chapel.”  Spurgeon responded, “I had not one big enough, and added that I thought it was the business of the people to try to gather the congregation, but I would send a brother who would do his best to fill the pulpit, and preach the gospel faithfully” (Spurgeon, Autobiography, vol. 2, p. 107).

    Vance Havner, whom Billy Graham called the most quoted preacher in America said, “The preacher who will not preach his heart out before a few people would be no good before a multitude.” And he went on to say, “A preacher who is too big for a little crowd would be too little for a big crowd.” Most of his 30+ books are out of print today, but you can find them in electronic form.
