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.

Recently I led a small group study on other religions. During one week of the study, I gave an overview of Islam, and a friend was kind enough to loan me a copy of the Quran to review and use in our discussion. As she handed me the book, she said, “Be sure not to […]

We’re often asked how we name and theme message series with Dr. Merritt. At his church, it’s a team approach. The Pastor details where God is leading him to preach, often with specific passages and key sermon points given to the planning team. Then, it’s our job to wrap the message or series in a […]

When I accepted my very first pastorate, at the tender age of twenty-three, it didn’t take me long to understand the two words that are constantly on the mind of any pastor and that is, “Sunday’s coming.”  It didn’t take me long to learn that study (and a lot of it) was going to be […]

In modern media-saturated culture, there’s a push from leading churches—especially larger churches—for a constant stream of teaching. Series follow series, with multiple emphases thrown in regarding various ministries for good measure. A few “attractional” sermons that draw a crowd, the in-depth series on a Bible book, the missions emphasis, family emphasis, practical series on finances, […]

I’ve pastored my church eighteen years. And I can tell you that even though I pastor in the buckle of the Bible Belt, reaching people today is different than it was eighteen years ago. When I first came to Georgia, you could lead somebody to Christ on Tuesday, they’d walk the aisle on Sunday, you […]

I’ve served at several churches over the years which have been through times of transition. Staff, direction or core ministry areas go through major change, and during that time, a significant number of people leave the church. Even in times of stability, the church gains and loses members regularly—prayerfully, gaining more than they lose over […]
