In this video, we discuss the difference between preaching and teaching.
In this video, we discuss how to change your sermon last minute.
Not too long ago I preached a sermon where I felt God was leading me to change up the introduction entirely. This occurred to me minutes before I was about to preach. I sat on the front row during worship and it was clear to me – the plan I had for the sermon opening just didn’t fit.
The direction I felt like God wanted me to go was to share a personal story that would be a fairly vulnerable, transparent thing to share. This was a risky proposition when completely extemporaneous, but I’ve told the story many times so I went with it.
This experience made me think about the best ways to change up your sermon when you feel like God is leading in a different direction with the sermon.
In this video we’ll explore 7 things to keep in mind if you need to change things up.
What if I told you that you could make your sermons more engaging by simply tweaking one thing about your delivery?
What if you could easily work this tweak in to your message this Sunday?
Very often we over complicate this process by looking for the MASSIVE change we need to make to improve our preaching when in reality it is the subtle, small tweaks that get us the best results.
So, what is the one small tweak you can make to increase engagement in your sermons? Find out in this video.
In this video, we discover the ONE small tweak you can make in that will increase engagement in your sermons.
Every preacher has physical tendencies that unintentionally distract the audience. Sometimes these are known by the preacher and other times they are ticks and habits that must be pointed out to be changed. Public speaking in any context, and especially in a church setting, engages your whole mind and body. This means speakers can easily find themselves neglecting to pay attention to their body language and physical habits because they have to remember what to say … and everyone is watching.
All of us could use some coaching in this area. When I look back through videos of my sermons I notice more distracting physical tendencies than I care to admit! But there is hope and we can all overcome these by knowing what they are and working to eliminate them.
In this video we will explore five common physical distractions I’ve observed in preachers over the years. I’ve also seen a good amount of these in my own preaching and have sought to correct and eliminate them.
When we preach, we make points. But a point can only be effective when we are intentional about how we present it. In this video I discuss how to make sure each point is communicated clearly and effectively so your listeners understand them and know how to apply them.
As preachers, we make points in every sermon we preach.
We try to communicate at least one point. One idea. One bottom line.
We may have one major point but a number of supporting points. The point is, you make points. Get the point?
So, what do you do with every point you make? Is it enough just to say the words. “My main point is _________. Okay, let’s close in prayer.” Well, we both know that would be insufficient.
We have to do more than just say a point for it to stick. But how do we do this? How do we develop sticky points that land on people in powerful ways.
In this video, I suggest doing at least three things with every point you make in your sermons. Using these as a base line allows you to do more if you’d like, but make sure you’re at least doing these three things with every point you make in your sermons. Give it a watch and let me know what you think in the comments. What do you do with every point...
