Are you a relatively inexperienced speaker? Are you younger than many of the people to whom you speak? I have a class series coming up that might be useful for you. 

In the month of October I shall be teaching a three-part series in the Thames Valley churches of Christ for relatively young and relatively inexperienced speakers.

The series will cover the basics of speaking in a church congregational context. Provisionally, the three classes will be as follows:

  1. Why we speak
  2. What to speak about
  3. How to speak

I would be very grateful for your input into this class series. If you are an experienced speaker, please answer these questions:

  1. What would you liked to have known when you started speaking?
  2. What one tip would have made all the difference?
  3. Now that you have the experience you have, what would you tell a speaker starting out?

If you are an inexperienced speaker, please answer these questions:

  1. What would you like to know?
  2. What is the greatest challenge you face in speaking?
  3. What kind of support would help you most to develop as a speaker?

Please add your comments on this week’s topic. We learn best when we learn in community. 

Do you have a question about teaching the Bible? Is it theological, technical, practical? Send me your questions or suggestions. Here’s the email:
