When you are delivering a message, there are intentional steps that you can take that will allow you to spark attention, and make sure that what you are saying is meaningful to the people you are speaking to. As you prepare for a message, there is a certain element that is crucial as it pertains to the people you are speaking to. Realizing that every congregation is different, you must be able to identify certain aspects of your congregation and utilize them in order to maximize the effectiveness of your message. In addition to this, you must be intentional about how you present your message so that your audience can receive it in the way that it is meant to be received.
Chances are, you have sat in a church and listened to a message in which the pastor had no idea how to utilize these key elements of delivering a message.
