  • How To Communicate To Change Lives

    Why do  speakers speak? Since the goal of  speaking is to change lives,  speaking is the ultimate tool for church growth. But how can you be effective in communication through  speaking? Listed below are eight questions to ask about your  speaking.

    1. Who will I be  speaking to? Asking questions like, "What are their needs?", "What are their hurts?", and, "What are their interests?", will help us focus on where the people are. Why ask? Because although there are three things that always get one's attention:
      • Things that threaten us.
      • Things that are unusual.
      • Things that we value.
       speaker can only consistently keep people's attention by focusing on what people value.

    2. What does the bible say about their needs?
      Since the Bible is the Book of Life, is will have the answer to peoples needs! The  speaker's task is to show the Bible to be relevant for today's needs.

    3. What is the most practical way to say it? Application is the central task in  speaking. So,  speaking must be practical enough for people to know what to do.
        How to make  speaking more practical?
      • Always aim for action.
      • Tell the people why.
      • Show them how.
      Exhortation without explanation leads to frustration. Too often people respond to a message with the expression, "Yes, but how?" In other words, I agree with what you're saying, but how do I do it?

    4. What is the most positive way to say it?
      Jesus never tried to convert anyone with anger. Although the Scriptures clearly warn of judgment, negative  speaking only produces negative people. Promote the positive alternatives to sin and  speak humbly.

    5. What is the most encouraging way to say it?
        Everyone has three fundamental needs:
      • To have their faith reinforced,
      • To have their hope renewed,
      • To have their love restored.
        The key to encouraging people is don't just tell it like it is, but also tell it like it could be.

    6. What is the simplest way to say it?
      Jesus taught profound truth in simple ways. Since a person forgets 90 to 95% of what they hear in seventy-two hours, the sermon needs to be definable in a single thought.
        How do you simplify the sermon?
      • Condense the message into a single sentence.
      • Avoid using religious terms.
      • Keep your outline simple.
      • Make your application fit.
      • Never make a point without a picture.

    7. What is the most personal way to say it?
      People today are skeptical and resistant to sales pitches, so the message must be made personal - "He's  speaking to me!"
        How do you  speak with impact?
      • Honestly share your struggles.
      • Honestly share your progress.
      • Share what you are learning. ..

    8. What is the most interesting way to say it?
      To the unchurched, dull  speaking is unforgivable. Vary your delivery! Jesus told stories about people and He also used humor. Humor relaxes people, makes painful medicine easier to accept and creates positive emotions.

      In summary, good effective  speaking is not just an accident. It should be thought through. Finally, the most effective key to  speaking is simply LOVE PEOPLE

    Lincoln's Principles On Leadership

    Taken from "Lincoln on Leadership", by Donald T. Phillips, Warner Books

  • It is important that the people know you come among them without fear.

  • Remember, human action can be modified to some extent, but human nature cannot be changed.

  • When you extinguish hope, you create desperation.

  • You must be consistently fair and decent, in both the business and the personal side of life.

  • Remember: Your organization will take on the personality of its top leader.

  • Do the very best you know how - the very best you can - and keep doing it until the end.

  • Avoid major conflict in the form of quarrels and arguments . you simply don't have time for it.

  • Make consistency one of the main cogs in the machinery of your organization.

  • Try not to feel insecure or threatened by your followers.

  • When the occasion is piled high with difficulty, rise with it. Think anew and act anew.

  • Remember that the best leaders never stop learning.

  • Don't lose confidence in your people when they fail.

  • Loyalty is more often won through private conversation than in any other way.

  • Don't forget that humor is a major component of your ability to persuade people.

  • When effecting renewal, call on the past, relate it to the present, and then use them both to provide a link to the future.

  • Everywhere you go, at every conceivable opportunity, reaffirm, reassert and remind everyone of the basic principles upon which your organization was founded.

  • Always let your subordinates know that the honor will be all theirs if they succeed and the blame will be all yours if they fail.

  • Spotting a New Leader

    10 Traits to identify a promising person

    1. Leadership in the past. The best predictor of the future is the past.

    2. The capacity to create or catch vision. When I talk to people about the future, I want their eyes to light up. I want them to ask the right questions.

    3. A constructive spirit of discontent. Some people would call this criticism, but there's a big difference in being constructively discontent and being critical. The unscratchable itch is always in the leader.

    4. Practical Ideas. Not everybody with practical ideas is a leader, of course, but leaders seem to be able to identify which are and which aren't.

    5. A willingness to take responsibility. Leaders will bear work, for the feeling of contributing to other people is what leadership is all about.

    6. A completion factor. In the military, it is called "completed staff work." The half-cooked meal isn't what you want.

    7. Mental toughness. No one can lead without being criticized or without facing discouragement. I don't want a mean leader; I don't want a tough leader.

    8. Peer respect. Peer respect doesn't reveal ability, but can show character and personality.

    9. Family respect. The family's feelings toward someone reveal much about his or her potential to lead.

    10. A quality that makes people listen to them. Potential leaders have a "holding court" quality about them. When they speak, people listen.

    Christ Temple Women of Faith Fellowships

    ...a network of caring women

    ...international in scope, yet one on one ministry.

      Do you have problems?   Do you have burdens that you want to release?  Everyone knows that Christians have a direct line to Jesus.  He is there to answer all our prayers and to comfort us.

    However, sometimes our burdens get so hard that we seek  comfort and understanding from our fellow sisters.  The Lord tells us to share our troubles with each other.  He tells us to pray for each other.  When one hurts, we all hurt.  When one rejoices, we all should rejoice.  

    When you come to the fellowship and you feel that you need someone to talk to or you just need comfort, the prayer warriors are there for you.  They are there to listen; they are there to comfort; and most of all they are there to pray with you.

     Whatever, you share with a prayer warrior stays with the prayer warrior. CONFIDENTIALITY is the most important part of being a prayer warrior.

    We pray that you leave the fellowship in good spirits and with a better relationship with the Lord.  The pray warriors are there to help you.  However, when you leave the fellowship, we encourage you to go to your home church and continue to share your hurts, pains and problems with your pastor or a fellow church member who you know you can trust.

    Just remember, the Christ Temple Women of Faith Fellowship is there for you.  May God Bless you.

    "And Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind be alert and always keep on praying  for all the saints.  Ephesians 6:18(NIV)

    "Confess you faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.  The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16(KJV)

    Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Romans 12:15(KJV)
