FAQs

Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:

How long are Dr. Merritt’s sermons?

Pastor Merritt has a relatively fast pace when preaching. He typically delivers his messages in 30-40 minutes.

How are sermons and materials priced?

Individual messages are $8.00 each. Series are discounted for three or more sermons in a package. The maximum price for a series is $60.00, regardless of the number of messages included.

What is your refund policy?

All files are instantly provided as digital downloads. Because you immediately have access to your purchase, all sales are final. However, we want you to be satisfied with your purchase. If you downloaded a message that just didn’t “click” for you as you prepared to preach, please email us and allow us to provide you with a discount or credit toward a future purchase.

How do I open the ZIP archive with my sermon files in it?

Most newer computers, Windows or MacOS, will automatically decompress the ZIP file when you double-click on it. If for some reason you don’t have the software included in your computer to decompress the ZIP file, you can find it online at WinZip.com.

Will you edit or customize the sermon or graphics for me?

Sermons are provided in Microsoft Word (.doc) format so you can edit them as needed. When you purchase a sermon series, you’ll also get the high-resolution Photoshop master file for the series theme. This layered file can be used by a graphics professional to customize or create additional graphics for you. Pastors Edge and Touching Lives does not provide graphics or sermon customization services.

Can I use sermon themes or graphics on other promotional items like T-shirts?

Yes, the graphics are yours to use as you please to further the ministry of your church. Please note, however, that many graphics contain licensed or purchased artwork, and that you may not offer for sale any item(s) which contain Pastors Edge artwork.

What if a file I receive is corrupted or contains an error?

Please contact us immediately via email (info@touchinglives.org) or by phone (770-982-0168) and we will replace or correct the file as quickly as possible.

Just before Easter in 2007, I cozied up on my couch to watch James Cameron’s highly publicized Discovery Channel documentary, The Lost Tomb of Jesus.

Often we assume that the pastor is the go-to person for counseling in the church. After all he likely possesses the most biblical knowledge in the congregation since he teaches from the pulpit each week.

The most important thing that occurs when churches gather for corporate worship is Bible teaching. Other elements lead up to this time, and our understanding of and obedience to the Word is the result of the cycle of revelation and response of corporate worship.

There’s one piece of technology that can get between the pastor and his congregation and either make or break the teaching time, and that’s the sound system. The pastor’s interface with the sound system is the microphone and the sound person. Now, as someone who has worked with many great technical ministry teams over the […]

A sermon should be a balance between teaching and application. Your giftedness as a preacher often will lean toward one or the other. Also, over time, a pastor’s emphasis in his teaching will also shift.
