Tips on worshipful presentations

I’ve been attending classes on how to present a message for a church. Here are a few tips I took away from last nights class.

-Don’t use divisive words. Churches often have their own lingo however, using this lingo creates a wall between the regulars and anyone new.

-Don’t let anger in your voice talk louder than any good points being said.

-Share with your audience knowledge that can be participated in, rather than only consumed.

 

“The most spiritual people I’ve ever met were not “givers” they were communicators. You don’t give people crumbs. You give them the whole piece of bread when that is what they are asking for, in order to be healed. Christ was never about hiding behind a Facebook page, an email, a prayer circle, a bible, or a church. He was about talking, listening and healing– face to face. He walked among sinners and ate with them. He devoted his time to people that were brokenhearted, difficult to like and fake as the religious beliefs they clung to. So, why is it that so many people profess to believe in Christ, yet they have forgotten what real love is—-communicating?”
