Brett Blair is the founder and owner of Sermons.com which has the largest subscriber base of any sermon and worship prep service in the world. The website offers annual memberships and clergy from all denominations and 90 different countries utilize the service. An email newsletter currently reaches 75,000 ministers. Brett served as a pastor in the United Methodist Church for 13 years before turning his attention to writing and editing Sermons.com full time. A graduate of Yale Divinity School Brett has authored two books of children’s sermons: Children’s Sermons A-Z and The Big Influence of Small Things.
Coming in the Spring 2017 is an eight part series of children’s books called: The Creator’s Toy Chest. The first four books will take four stories from the Old Testament and retell those stories in a bedtime reading format that is memorable and timeless. Four more books will be released in 2018. Look for these exciting titles from Baker Publishing in your favorite book stores.
In addition to the M.Div., Brett has an M.A. and B.A. in New Testament Literature. He has worked in Radio and TV before responding to the call to ministry. While serving in a rural church in Tennessee during the advent of the internet in the 90s, Brett realized this medium could be a powerful tool to resource pastors in ways never before possible. Since then Sermons.com has broadened its offerings to include multimedia, stewardship, and children’s resources. Brett is currently developing a social networking site for clergy called Pastor.com and for laity called Discipleship.com, both due to launch in the fall of this year.
Brett was born in Memphis TN and now lives in Sarasota FL with his wife Cyndi. They have three children: Hannah who graduated from the Ringling College of Art and Design, Brett Jr. (14) and Nathan (12), both tennis prodigies being coached by Julien Link.
