Easily Customize Each Sermon

Each sermon outline is between 1500-1800 words in length. They're just outlines. You'll need to flesh them out with personal illustrations and references to examples that make them come to life with your congregation.

This isn't an expository sermon series. It's topical. But each sermon is anchored in the Bible as all sermons should be.

If you desire, you can preach the series while your small groups read the book, Suprise the World. The sermons don't simply rehash the book. They refer to the book and cover related material.

Surprise the World
The Five Habits of Highly Missional People

By Michael Frost

Buy The Book

The Surprise the World sermon series is based on Michael Frost's book Surprise the World: The Five Habits of Highly Missional People.

These five habits will help your congregation share their faith in surprisingly simple ways.

Invite your church to commit to these surprisingly simple habits, and watch the kingdom of God become tangible. This affordable book makes it easy to encourage spiritual conversations outside the walls of your church.

"Christians should be different, we should challenge convention, and stand out from culture. Too often, we stand out for the wrong reasons. In Surprise the World Michael Frost challenges us to lead lives that cause the world to question how we love and serve so well. This book is a timely wake up call for believers, and a concise and helpful encouragement to those seeking to live on mission in their communities. Mike is the real deal and so is this book!"
- Ed Stetzer, Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College
