You will explore keys for personal and spiritual preparation, places to find illustrations, ways to connect God's Word with students, uses of humor, and the place of timing and speed in communication. You will grow in your understanding of hindrances to effective communication, techniques for body language, and the ways the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit work in the process of transforming people.
