Preaching is an absolute necessity, great preaching more so to transform society and advance God’s kingdom. Great preaching is that what points to Christ in every text from Scripture New Testament as well as Old Testament. Based on Luke 24 and other fundamental texts this study shows preaching Christ from the Old Testament is warranted. The purpose of the study however was to find out the attitude of Haitian leaders/pastors/preachers regarding Christocentric preaching and also ascertain if they are willing to know more whatever their knowledge is currently on the issue. This quantitative study uses the survey method, and we find that regardless of the level of education of the participants all would want to know more and use the model of Christocentric interpretation in their preaching. The literature on Haitian preaching is not extensive and the study has limitations to the impossibility of collecting a probability sample. However, we can infer from our judgment samples that the result of the study can be generalized on our population which was Haitian preachers.
