Title: COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM


1
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR
EVANGELISM
  • TELUGU CHRISTIAN CONGREGATION, KUWAIT

2
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • What is effectiveness in communication for
    Evangelism?
  • It is speaking authoritatively using graceful
    words (Luke 4.32 They were amazed at his
    teaching, because his message had authority
  • (Luke 4.22) All spoke well of him and were amazed
    at the gracious words that came from his lips.
    Isnt this Joseph son? They asked
  • It is helping people connect the ancient Word to
    the contemporary world.

COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • (Acts 14.1) At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as
    usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they so
    spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews
    and Gentiles believed
  • Effective Communication is a Life impacting and
    life transforming communication.
  • Vision for Evangelism
  • The will of God is that no one should perish and
    that everyone should have eternal life

4
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • The vision becomes a reality when we act upon
    using the following steps
  • Personalize it
  • Cherish it and share it with other
  • Write and display it
  • Pray for it
  • Work for it in the power of the Holy Spirit
  • Nearly 50 of the worlds population has not
    heard about our
  • Lord Jesus Christ meaningfully

5
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • At the same time, every day 375,000,000,000 hours
    of personal evangelism is done the world over
  • Also every year95 invitations per person are
    given to accept Jesus as their personal savior
    (David Barretts Annual Statistical table on
    global mission)
  • Two fold approach for evangelism
  • Christians must be challenged to obey the great
    commission. Every Christian must become an
    evangelist (Prof. Jayakar Chellaraj)

6
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • When we teach to some one, he would start a
    second cycle by starting at the first step Go .
    The multiplication effect this process triggers
    would make evangelization of the world complete
    in 33 years or less.
  • Go preach make disciples baptize teach to
    observe
  • People who respond positively to the great
    commission often feel inadequate to evangelize
    others. They have to be trained and equipped for
    evangelism

7
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • (Eph 4. 11, 12) It was he who gave some to be
    apostles, some to be prophets, some to be pastors
    and teachers to prepare Gods people for works of
    service, so that the body of Christ may be built
    up until we all reach unity in the faith and in
    the knowledge of the Son of God and become
    mature, attaining to the whole measure of the
    fullness of God.
  • Definition for communication
  • Communication is defined as an interaction. It is
    an interaction between the sender and the
    receiver. The verbals, non verbals, visuals etc
    used by the sender constitute the action. The
    responses of the receiver, are reactions.
  • Communication which is an interaction is a
    combination of these two. Communication is a
    dynamic process in which the sender and the
    listener are actively involved.

8
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Therefore, communication aims bringing changes,
    transformation, healing and growth in the
    listeners.
  • Two types of communications
  • Intra personal communication is the communication
    we have within ourselves. It includes our
    communication with God. The preparations we make
    for our sermons and presentations are example for
    intrapersonal communication.
  • Interpersonal communication is the communication
    we have with others. Our sermons, lectures and
    talks come under this category
  • Jays theory
  • The quality of interpersonal communication
    depends on the quality of intrapersonal
    communication that precedes it.

9
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Our objective is to enhance th4e quality of our
    interpersonal communication. According to this
    theory, if the quality of our sermons and talks
    has to improve, we have to first improved the
    quality of the preparations we do in advance.
  • The success of our communication for evangelism
    depends on the quality of intrapersonal
    communication we have as preparation.
    Intrapersonal communication consists of two
    which is primary preparations and secondary
    preparations
  • Primary preparations
  • Communication for Evangelism is a Life changing
    and Life transforming communication. Human skills
    and human wisdom are not sufficient to change
    people. Primary preparations reach beyond the
    human domain and consist of the following

10
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Reading the word of God and meditating upon it
    (Psa 1.2, 3) But his delight is in the law of the
    Lord and on his law he mediates days and night.
    He is like a treeplanted by streams of water
    which yields its fruit in the season and whose
    leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers
  • (Psa 119. 99) I have more insight than all my
    teachers, for I meditate on your statues
  • Acting on the word of God
  • (Psa 119. 100) I have insight than all my
    teachers for I meditate on your statues
  • (Mat 14. 28-30) Lord, if its you.. Peter
    replied, tell me to come to you on the water.
    Come he said. Then Peter got down out of the
    boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.

11
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Repenting, confessing sins and obtaining
  • forgiveness
  • (Luke 5.8) When Simon Peter saw this, he fell
    at Jesus knees and said, go away from me Lord,
    I am a sinful man
  • (Luke 5. 10) And so were James, and John, the
    sons of Zebedee, Simons partners.
  • (Luke 22.62) And he went outside and wept
    bitterly.
  • Obtaining inner peace
  • (Mat 11. 28) Come to me, all you who are weary
    and burdened, and I will give you rest.
  • (John 14. 27) Peace I leave with you my peace
    I give you. I do not give you as the world gives
  • Getting empowered through intimacy with God
  • (Mark 1. 35) Very early in the morning, while
    it was still dark, Jesus got up and left the
    house and went off to a solitary place

12
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • (John 8.1 ) Jesus went to the Mount Olives. At
    dawn he appeared again, in the temple courts,
    where all the people gathered around him and he
    sat down to teach them.
  • (Mark 6.46) After leaving them he went up on a
    mountain side to pray (Afternoon)
  • (Jer 33.3) Call to me and I will answer you
    and tell you great and unreachable things you do
    not know.
  • Getting empowered through the anointment of
    the Holy Spirit
  • (Acts 1.8) But you will receive power when the
    Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my
    witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and
    Samaria and to the ends of the earth.

13
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Successfully undergoing the wilderness
    experience
  • Mark 1.13 And he was in the desert forty
    days, being tempted by Satan, He was with wild
    animals, and angels attending on him
  • Secondary preparations
  • Primary preparations are vital for
    effectiveness in communication. Secondary
    preparations are important. The secondary
    preparations consists of all the usual
    preparations that a communicator has to make so
    that communication becomes effective.

14
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Specific observable outcomes of Learning (SOOL)
  • The main purpose of communication is to bring
    about certain Specific observable outcomes in the
    learner.
  • Communication can be effective and purposeful
    only if the communicator has clarity in his mind
    about these outcomes.
  • Therefore, the first thing we must do before we
    prepare the sermon outline is to write statements
    of Specific observable outcomes of leering (SOOL)
  • These things help us to visualize the result that
    we would like to see happening in our learners as
    a result of our teaching/preaching.

15
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Level 1
  • What shall the learner would remember at the end
    of the session. They should remember facts,
    concepts, theories, events, names, bible verses
    etc., which is a basic requirement in the
    learning process.
  • Teaching activities that achieve this are,
    stating, repeating, explaining, using visuals
    etc.,
  • Level 2
  • What shall the learners would understand as a
    result of our communication and what they would
    be able to apply in their lives. Communication is
    effective only when learners understand what sis
    taught and apply their understanding in their
    personal and professional lives.

16
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Collecting content - Collect from books,
    journals, experts and personal research
  • Classifying content - Classify content in to
    theories, strategies, case studies, etc.,
  • Choosing content - Choosing the right
    content for a sermon is a vital step. The content
    we choose must meet both the Real and the Felt
    needs of people
  • Some felt needs - People want short and
    sweet sermons. They want sermons that are useful,
    inspiring, motivating, comfort and encouraging
  • Some real needs - People need Jesus Christ
    in their lives. They need salvation. They need
    the fruit of the spirit

17
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Charging content - The content we have chosen
    should be presented in a way that is interesting.
    The content should be organized logically and
    should be communicated at the feeling level. We
    can make the presentation interesting by using a
    variety of techniques, by involving people, by
    relating teaching to the lives and needs of
    people by using humor
  • Preparation of process - The process used in
    communication must cause learing to take place in
    the listeners and is therefore very important

18
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Three kinds of communication
  • One to one communication Personal
    evangelism and counseling are examples of this
    type of communication
  • One to small group communication In this
    type the sender communicates to a small group of
    people.
  • One to large group communication It is also
    called mass communication. In visible mass
    communication, the audience is directly in front
    of communicator. In non visible mass
    communication, the audience is reached through
    media like radio, TV, newspapers, books,
    pamphlets etc.,

19
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • The word communication comes from the word
    Communis which means common. Before a message
    is communicated, the content of communication is
    known only to the sender. After communication is
    completed, this content becomes common to the
    sender and the receiver.
  • In effective communication, the sender
    communicatges so that his experiences become the
    experiences of the receiver fully and completely.

20
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Communication is establishing and enlarging
    commonality with listeners.
  • The following steps helps us to do this
  • State what they know
  • State in the way they know
  • State using words they know
  • Pronounce words in the way they do
  • State what they do not know
  • State what they need to know
  • Thus, Communication is sharing experiences
  • Love, is a prerequisite for effective
    communication.
  • An effective communicator desires deep in
    his heart that his experiences should become the
    experiences of the receivers. This is an attitude
    of love. Without love, effective communication is
    not possible.

21
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Work Shop
  • Read Acts 2. 1 Then Peter stood up with the
    eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd,
    fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem
    let me explain this to you Listen carefully to
    what I say.
  • Why did Peter stand and speak?
  • Why did he raise his voice? What are the
    suggestions you get from this for effective
    communication
  • Why were eleven standing with Peter? What
    does that teach you in the context of effective
    communication?
  • Peter was speaking in second person, in what
    way you think this way of speaking in
    significant? Do you think that this is the best
    way of speaking? Give reasons for your answer

22
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Communication at the Encounter Level
  • Levels of communication
  • Cliché level or Surface level communication
  • Communication at this level is very superficial.
    It consists of repetitive statements which are
    used for the sake of using. No meaning or purpose
    is intended. The communicator is just performing
    a duty and he has no vision or goals.

23
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Fact level or Gossip level communication
  • At this level, the communicator
    communicates ideas and theories of experts. He
    may explain the Greek, Latin and Hebrew origins
    of words. But, the communicator is not personally
    involved in the communication. He may talk a lot
    about the love of Jesus Christ as found in the
    Bible. But, when he has no personal relationship
    with Jesus Christ, his communication is reduced
    to mere gossip.

24
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Judgment level communicating
  • Communication at this level consists of
    facts and theories combined with a
    intellectual analysis of these. These merits and
    demerits of the ideas so discussed are explained.
    This level of communication is intellectually
    stimulating.
  • One problem with this level of
    communication is that it emanates mostly from the
    mid of the communicator and not from his heart.
    In other words, the total person of the
    communicator is not involved in the
    communication. Since, the communication does not
    involve the affective domain it odes not reach
    those who labor and are heavy laden.

25
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • iv. Feeling level communication
  • This level of communication uses fully the
    affective (feeling) and cognitive (thinking)
    domains of the communicator.
  • When we communicate at the Feeling Level, our
    verbal which express our thoughts and non
    verbal which express our feelings flow freely,
    supplementing each other. This level of
    communication is powerful and it reaches both the
    mind and the heart of the listeners. A problem
    with this level of communication is that the
    communicator could be so focused on his own ideas
    and feelings that the might ignore the feelings
    of his listeners. This insensitiveness could take
    away the impact of the communication..

26
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • v. Encounter Level
  • This the deepest and most effective level of
    communication. At this level the communicator not
    only express his ideas and feelings but also
    recognizes and respects the feelings of his
    listeners. It is a communication in which the
    communicator and listeners feel together, think
    together, search together, learn together and
    grow together.

27
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • Strategies to Enhance Effectiveness in
  • Communication.
  • Moving in Fulcrum?
  • Look at the following diagram.
  • a.
  • b.
  • c.

a. Output is less than input
b. Output equal than input
c. Output greater than input
28
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • In communication input is given by the
    communicator and the output takes place in the
    listeners. In order to increase the output,
    Effective Communicators move the fulcrum, i.e.,
    the centre of activity away from themselves so
    that it lies closer to the listeners. In other
    words, they involve the participants more and
    more in the learning process through carefully
    designed activities

29
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • 2. Games and Exercise
  • Games and Exercise can be suitable designed to
    enable people look at their own lives and
    evaluate them on Biblical standards. When people
    find themselves wanting on these standards they
    can be helped to change. Personality Development
    Programmers. Are a big draw among the youth.
    Activities in these programs can be
  • designed to lead people to make a commitment
    for the Lord.

30
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • 3. Three level teaching
  • An effective method of communicating is
    making available a large set of facts to the
    listener, and enabling them to draw concepts
    out of these facts. Since these concepts where
    formulated by the learners themselves, it will be
    easy for them to apply these concepts in various
    situations.

  • 4. Lewins Theory of Groups
  • All of us surround ourselves with a personal
    space. We would not like strangers to step into
    this space. Some people even build a wall of
    resistance around themselves because of insecure
    feelings. They do not normally allow the word of
    God to influence them. This wall gets opened only
    in a atmosphere of trust an atmosphere which a
    small group could provide.

32
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • When a person in the group makes an intimate
    sharing of a deep personal experience like the
    salvation experience, he is in fact, opening his
    personal wall and allowing others to enter his
    personal space. This kind of sharing by one
    person will motivate others in the group to open
    their walls of resistance so that new ideas can
    step inside this space. This process has helped
    many to allow the Lord Jesus Christ enter their
    lives.

33
COMMUNICATING EFFECTIVELY FOR EVANGELISM
  • 5. Confrontation
  • When milk is churned, the cream comes to the
    top. Similarly, when people are confronted
    carefully and respectfully the best in these
    people surfaces and great changes take place in
    them. Paul Said .correct, rebuke and
