The idea of a tag team in wrestling is a cool thing. It allows for only one wrestler on a team at a time in the ring but that person can tag in another wrestler outside the ring to replace them. This provides fresh legs, a new perspective on the match and encourages team work between the wrestlers. I enjoyed watching good tag teams growing up!
Here are a few reasons you should consider doing a tag team sermon sometime soon:
When you tag team preach you are fundamentally creating an almost dialogue type environment with at least two different voices. This is very effective for communicating to an audience because the switch up will engage the mind and hold their attention. With different voices you get different styles, maybe different generations, different core speaking styles, and different ideas.
Tag team preaching is a good way to get different voices involved from the stage.
Tag team preaching creates a situation where different perspectives can be introduced on one topic. Maybe you want to address some tension in passage or you want to go a couple directions with something; this is a good way to do this. Also, you can literally present two or more valid opinions on a topic and help teach respectable dialogue.
The act of tag team preaching creates a need and ability to collaborate. You should collaborate in the actual preparation process to make sure you do not diverge or overlap too much. You will also need to collaborate and play off each other in the actual act of preaching. This is a good relationship builder and encourages collaboration in your other aspects of ministry.
Looking for something different to try in your preaching soon? Then try a tag team sermon. If you are in a one staff person church find a leader or an aspiring leader and lead them through the process then go do it! Maybe construct the outline and assign them a point of two.
If you are in a multiple staff person church this should be an easier concept to try. There is lots of ways to do it!
