Whether you speak from the pulpit, podium, or the front of a classroom, you dont need much more than blank stares and faraway looks to tell you youre not connecting. Take heart before your audience takes leave! You can convey your message in the powerful, life-changing way it deserves to be told. An insightful, entertaining parable thats an excellent guide for any speaker, Communicating for a Change takes a simple approach to delivering effectively. Join Pastor Ray as he discovers that the secrets to successful speaking are parallel to the lessons a trucker learns on the road. By knowing your destination before you leave (identifying the one basic premise of your message), using your blinkers (making transitions obvious), and implementing five other practical points, youll drive your message home every time!
"Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away…"
"Once upon a time…"
"In the beginning…"
Great stories capture and hold an audiences attention from start to finish. Why should it be any different when you stand up to speak?
In Communicating for a Change, Andy Stanley and Lane Jones offer a unique strategy for communicators seeking to deliver captivating and practical messages. In this highly creative presentation, the authors unpack seven concepts that will empower you to engage and impact your audience in a way that leaves them wanting more.

It's an easy, but powerful, read. This style of preaching is very different than what is traditionally taught by mentors and Christian colleges.
