Today I want to share with you few websites from which you can download useful ministry resources such as sermon manuscripts, outlines, audio and videos. Also check the previously introduced CARM, VideoTeaching.com and Sermon Note Book.
1. Manuscripts and Outlines
The Preaching web site has a vast library of sermons and even illustrations. Here you can find sermons from many world renown preachers like Dr. David Jeremiah. Resources are neatly organized by scripture, Age group, Bible Characters etc.
B. Executable Outlines
Executable Outlines has not only sermon outlines but study guides and PowerPoint sermons also. All the resources are neatly organized under different categories like Bible Study Guides, Textual Sermon Series, Topical Sermon Series, Single Textual Sermons, Single Topical Sermons and PowerPoint Sermons. You can even download all the outlines in one Zipped file.
C. Sermon Central
At Sermon Central also you can find sermons by many renown Christian Preachers around the world. They have a huge collection of illustrations also. You can search the site for sermons, illustrations and any other available resources by scripture, speaker or topic. Unfortunately though to access certain resources you need to register for a pro account.
2. Audio Sermons

In the The Word for Today web site you will find a single series of sermons ranging from Genesis to Revelation. You can either choose to stream them online or download them to your computer as Mp3 files for listening later or view the outline.
In the SermonAudio.com web site you can either stream the sermons online or download them to your computer as Mp3 file for listening later. Sermons are organized by book, speaker, topic and date. Despite its name you can find a growing library of 38,760+ videos as well.
C. Desiring God
Desiring God is the official web site of Dr. John Piper, the world renown Preacher and Teacher of the Bible. The majority of the sermons in this web site are audio only. There are few video sermons also. While only a handful of video sermons can be downloaded you can download any audio sermon to your computer for listening later. Manuscript is not available for all the sermons. Messages are organized by topic, scripture, series and date.
3. Video Sermons
