Jeff Henderson is the campus pastor at Gwinnett Church, a North Point Ministries Church in the Atlanta area. Jeff has spoken the last couple of weeks at North Point as the main communicator. (Check out his current Climate Change series here.) He has done and always does a phenomenal job. His secret to communication success… He delivers his sermons 5 times to himself out loud before he ever delivers it to an audience. He then goes back and listens to his sermon after he delivers it. The best way to evaluate yourself is to listen to yourself.
Does this take a lot of time? Sure. Could it be uncomfortable to listen to/watch yourself speaking over and over again? Possibly. But accomplishing great things takes time and dedication – that’s just the way of life. So practice your communicating and you will improve.
