Crafting Effective Speeches


Public speaking is an important component of ministry, but it can feel like the most intimidating part! In this course, we’ll break down the basics of developing a strong speech or sermon, from brainstorming through performance. We’ll examine how to use stories and Scripture effectively to move, engage, and excite your audience. We will practice and apply these techniques, specifically addressing how to articulate ideas and vision, how to develop a tool chest for effective communication, and how to understand and use the power of language.

This course counts towards the Ministry Essentials Certificate.
