Consciously Competent #1 - 4 Keys to Effective Presentations in 4 Minutes

Mar 29, 2018
 

This is a new series.  Each week, I will be giving 4 keys for effective presentations in 4 minutes or less.  Each week, we will be covering a different area in the process of being a spokesperson for the Lord.

As pastors, teachers, professors and chaplains, we want to best communicate the Word of God in the most effective way possible.  While we all must depend upon the power of the Holy Spirit to guide us and change the lives of people to whom we are speaking, each of us bears the responsibility to do the best job we can so that we don't get in the way of God's work.

Here are the first 4 keys.

Are Pastors Boring?

Feb 19, 2018
 

It depends on who you ask, but the concensus, at least from the group to whom I was speaking was that pastors, teachers, and professors were boring and that was why they had left the church.  

The joy is - it doesn't have to be this way!  The purpose of Christ, the message of salvation and the forgiveness of sins is the most incredible, powerful, gripping and joyful story on our planet.  If people think it is boring, perhaps we ought to look in the mirror for the reason.

Pastors and Teachers - 3 truths you MUST believe before you speak!

Dec 02, 2017

 

If you want people to remember what you say, repeat what they heard and change their lives because of your presentation, there are three truths you must believe before you ever open your mouth.  Who you are, Why you are and Where you are going.

I specifically chose the word believe, because it is more than know.  We can know things that never make a difference in our lives, because they are simply head knowledge.  Beliefs are those convictions rooted in our hearts that must, by definition, impact who we are and what we do.  These three truths, that I am going to share, must be beliefs within you, if you desire to see change in the lives of others.  Without these beliefs, your words will simply be informational.  They will fail to engage, move and excite your audience.

There are a number of things that your audience sense long before you say anything.  Over the next few weeks, I will teach a number of these and they are all found in my course...
