Whether you¹re crafting a five-minute devotional or a 30-minute sermon, Speaking to Teenagers is essential to understanding and preparing great messages. Together, Doug Fields and Duffy Robbins show you how they craft their own messages and give you the tools to do it yourself. They'll guide you, step-by-step, through the process of preparing and delivering meaningful messages that effectively communicate to your students. Fields and Robbins walk you through three dimensions of a message - the speaker, the listener, and the message itself ‹ and introduce you to the concept and principles of inductive communication. You¹ll also get helpful tips on finding illustrations for your talk and using them for maximum impact, as well as insights on reading your audience and effective body language. As Speaking to Teenagers guides you toward becoming a more effective communicator, you'll find that this book's practical principles will positively impact the way you view, treat, and communicate to teenagers.


This book is broken down into 3 sections. Section 1 is How to Think about Effective Messages, and covers aspects related to your character, the purpose of preaching in building a bridge to people with God's truth, and understanding your audience. Section 2 starts to look at creating messages that stick. They use STICK as an acronym for Study, Think, Illustrate, Construct & Keep Focussed. Section 3 covers delivery of the message.

This is a helpful book for those who want to or do preach to teenagers.
