Rural church completes 400 consecutive nights of preaching
KRUM After 400 days of preaching, pastor Tim Robinson of Plainview Baptist Church ended a sermon streak begun more than a year before in late October 2022.
The 400 days of preaching involved more than 500 sermons, since Robinson preached twice on the 57 Sunday mornings during the streak and also did Sunday evening services. Members invited friends to come to “the church that meets every night.” Weekday sermons featured simple hymns to keep things “relaxed and less formal.”
Holidays fueled the streak. At the church’s recent fall festival, Robinson preached about the Holy Spirit to about 400 guests, “the largest gathering of any kind in the church’s 128-year history.”
The goal was “to see more souls saved,” and the church added a Roku channel and streamed the sermon series on Facebook each night. Demographic reports from Roku and social media revealed Plainview Baptist had reached more than 20,000 across the country and internationally, Robinson said.
