- Prepare your messages weeks in advance.
You’d be amazed at what the Holy Spirit will reveal in a month compared to what he reveals in a week.
- Speak the truth.
- Keep it simple.
The less you teach, the more your audience will retain…and (more importantly) live out.
- Sweat the outline not the manuscript.
- Tell stories.
People will tune out unless you engage their emotions.
- Invite others into the process.
Perry is a phenomenal communicator, but one of his secrets is that every message is prepared with the input of a team.
Absolutely awesome. Many young pastors are looking for this advice. I am beginning a ministry renovation which will include many of the things mentioned here. I do plan ahead, but I want to be writting from week to week on the message for 2 weeks from now, not the talk for this week.
Great stuff guys!
