25 Father's Day Preaching and Worship Resources

This Father's Day, here are 25 powerful resources for preaching and worship — including sermons from Chuck Swindoll and Rick Warren — to help highlight the love of our Heavenly Father and to raise up godly fathers in your churches.  


1. The Merit of Our Mission, by Chuck Swindoll

All of life is a preliminary to the dawning of that day of the Lord, when He shall come riding on the clouds to claim His own. This place is not our home. We are pilgrims passing through, and we shall not rest until we rest IN HIM.

2. How God Tests Our Faith, by Rick Warren

We tend to get what we expect out of life. According to our faith, it will be done to us. Pastor Rick and Pastor Holladay teach four ways that God tests our faith.

3. How to Raise Positive Kids in a Negative World, by Chip Ingram

Chip Ingram offers advice from years of pastoring and parenting on how to raise spiritually strong kids in the midst of a godless world.

4. Present and Involved — A Real Father

Sermon highlights the importance of fathers being present, involved and speaking positively into the life of their children. Preached on Father's day to challenge fathers to get involved in the life of their children.

5. Men Behaving Godly

Most of us have been exposed to the television’s portrayal of MEN BEHAVING BADLY. But I wonder how many of us have been exposed to the Bible’s portrayal of MEN BEHAVING GODLY? Would you agree with me that what the world needs today is not more men behaving Badly... What the world really needs today is more men behaving Godly.

6. The Legacy of Dad

This sermon will encourage the dads of your congregation for Father’s Day, not roast them... Dads need positive reinforcement on Fathers Day and this encourages dads to be all they can be in Christ.

7. A Father's Day Message

Christian fatherhood is an important part of God’s plan and design the family. Paul writes that there are three important functions that Christian fathers must carry out.

8. The Inner Man

Strength from the Spirit of God in the inner man; strength in the soul; the strength of faith, to serve God, and to do our duty. If the law of Christ is written in our hearts, and the love of Christ is shed abroad there, then Christ dwells there. 

9. Father's Day

Notice that one of the responsibilities of John the Baptist was to “turn the hearts of the fathers to the children.” If ever there was a time that this needed to happen it is now.

10. A Father's Fear

What will happen in the future with these four kids? How will I know they will survive or be safe in a harsh world? How can I know the future will be OK for them? In a real world of corrupting influences, where friends can be enemies, a world of economic downturns, where death and disease can strike with no warning, …oh, we fear for them. 

11. Jairus (Father's Day)

What did Jairus’ daugher see in her father as he sought the Saviors help on her behalf?

12. Dear Dad

The focus of this sermon is the important of young boys and men having positive male roles such as fathers, and uncles actively participating in their lives.

13. Father's Day: Joseph

We are introduced to Joseph in the middle of a personal crisis. Having become engaged to a beautiful young girl, he has worked hard to establish an income to support his new bride and begin a family. He’s in love. He’s committed to Mary. He believed she loved him—that is, until he hears the news that his precious bride is pregnant.

14. The Fatherhood of God

Not everyone has the same experience with their earthly fathers. Some were tormented, even abused, by a godless man. Others were dominated by a tyrant. Others were ignored, or even deserted. And then there are some who never even knew who their earthly father was. But here is the hope - the promise - this morning: NONE OF US need live without the Fatherhood of God. 

15. How to Become a Man After God's Own Heart

If King David can become a man after God’s own heart, so can you; that if you desire to be all that God wants you to be.

16. Healing the "Father Absence" Wound

Today we take time to acknowledge and to thank those men in our lives that have served us as fathers. They may have been fathers, our grandfathers, our uncles, our older brothers, our coaches, our teachers, our counselors, our pastors, or that neighbor down the street. We thank those men who have taken the time to invest some of themselves into us, which has made us a better person today.
