Preparation time can't look the same for that, but only having to preach one text a week gives me the liberty and the opportunity to spend between 20 and 25 hours—sometimes less, sometimes more—in the text during the week. (PS: We would like to know how many of Ed Stetzer church plants survived….It's a little hard to get that number…) Stetzer wrote an article for Christianity Today about Platt's new position.(I first learned of it from SBC This Week.)
