Delivery that gets the big idea across
"Ask NOT what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”- John F. Kennedy
"We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, We shall fight on the seas on oceans; we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, We shall fight on the beaches, We shall fight on the landing grounds; we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, We shall fight in the hills; We shall NEVER surrender"- Winston Churchill
“And even from my sickbed, even if you are going to lower me into the grave and I feel that something is going wrong, I’ll get up.” – Lee Kuan Yew
These speeches were memorable not only for what was said but how it was said.
JFK’s emphatic NOT followed by a short pause. His jabbing finger: a direct challenge to his hearers.
Churchill’s steady, slow start building up in pace and volume to the climax of that NEVER!
Lee Kuan Yew’s unbroken eye contact with his hearers. His growling, determined “I’ll get up”.
A good sermon needs good delivery. However, we don’t value good delivery for its own sake. We value good delivery because we want God’s precious word to be heard with maximum impact! The eye contact, the pace, the volume, the pause, the hand gestures are servants to the big idea of the passage.
In this training module, we share 6 tips for sermon delivery that gets the big idea across!
Stand up and deliver!
