The Sermon Depository
Since 2005 The Sermon Depository has hosted over a thousand sermons. In that time over a million sermons have been downloaded.
A million......thats a big number.
However, the site is showing its age. This past year, when the hosting fees came around, I thought about shutting the site down. Traffic is steady at 30000 visitors a month, but lately I have only gotten complaints about the site. It is true that I have not updated it in years. Plus, add revenue from Google is not paying for the fees to keep it up.
Then I looked at the stats, something I had ignored for years. There I discovered something that stirred my heart.
Half of the traffic to The Sermon Depository is coming from China.
The Chinese people do not enjoy the access to good teaching like we do in the states. I can't take this source away from them.
So this is what I am going to do:
I will keep up the site no matter what, but I will also let my American, European, and Australian brothers and sisters help if they want.
Below is a way to give $1 (or a little more) to help keep this site up. Any money collected above the hosting fees will be spent to add new sermons to the site.Keep in mind, even if no one gives, I will keep this site open. I am just giving you the opportunity to help.
We at sermondepository.com hope you enjoy the free audio sermons on this site. Most are in MP3 format so that you may listen to them on any computer, download them to a portable player, or burn them to CD. We hope they help you grow in the LORD! Please distribute these sermons any way you see fit. Our goal is to get great preaching to the masses any way possible!
Any believer will enjoy the content of this site. However, this site is unapologetically Independent Baptist in its doctrine. All sermons are either by respected speakers or are rigorously previewed to ensure doctrinal accuracy. This site is a safe haven for those who just want to listen to good preaching!
Everything is free! You will never be charged for anything at sermondepository.com.
