The website offers annual memberships and clergy from all denominations and 90 different countries utilize the service. An email newsletter currently reaches 75,000 ministers. Brett served as a pastor in the United Methodist Church for 13 years before turning his attention to writing and editing Sermons.com. A graduate of Yale Divinity School Brett has authored two books of children's sermons: Children's Sermons A-Z and The Big Influence of Small Things.
A series of four illustrated children's books covering the stories of the Old Testament will be available in the Spring of 2017. Four New Testament books will follow (see amazon.com/author/brettblair). Baker Publishing will release the first four as a box set:
The Creator's Toy Chest

Dan for Dinner
In addition to the M.Div., Brett has an M.A. and B.A. in New Testament Literature, he worked in Radio and TV in the Memphis market. While serving in a rural church in Tennessee during the advent of the internet in the 90s, Brett realized this medium could be a powerful tool to resource pastors in ways never before possible. Since then Sermons.com has broadened its offerings to include multimedia, stewardship, and children's resources. Brett is currently developing a social networking site to connect congregations with their pastors called Pastor.com due to launch in the fall of this year. Also in the beginning stages of development is Discipleship.com.
Brett was born in Memphis TN and now lives in Sarasota FL with his Wife Cyndi. They have three children: Hannah who graduated from the Ringling College of Art and Design, Brett Jr. (15) and Nathan (12), both tennis players being coached by Julien Link (www.youtube.com/brettcblair).
