Good Thoughts for Public Speakers

Justin Beadles tells you how to keep from killing listeners with power point here.

Justin learned preaching at DTS, and there we were taught to do five things in the introduction to a sermon:

  1. Grab Attention
  2. Raise a real need to hear what you’re going to say
  3. State your main point
  4. Preview the sections of your presentation
  5. Give the context of the passage you’re preaching

Keruxson ton logon! That is, “Preach the word!” (2 Tim 4:2).

    I am extremely nervous about a preaching assignment I have this Sunday though I have preached many times; I take your suggestions to heart. I need them! Thanks.
