A class of practical application. On a regular basis, each student will prepare and deliver messages orally while being reviewed by faculty members and peers. The special emphasis of this course is on developing “pulpit” skills. You will face and overcome your fears of speaking in public. In a safe, positive environment you will become aware of and deal with the small annoyances in your delivery style that would prevent people from hearing and receiving your message.
Communication is essential to successful ministry. It doesn’t matter what you have to say if you cannot make it understandable to the hearer. This study of the basic parts of speech and syntax of the English sentence is the starting place for learning effective communication.
This course outlines the practical lifestyle of the believer and minister that gives credibility and influence to all they do. “When your gift exceeds your character, the gift becomes a reproach” (JBR). We want your life to be as appealing as your ministry gift. A life of character is the only assurance of a life of ministry success. This is a personal development course that makes your testimony believable.
