Description

Product Description

We are constantly communicating. Whether written or verbal, formal or informal, in actions or expressions, what we say and do carries meaning that affects those around us. Christian leaders are called to make disciples by teaching, so how can we make the most of all our communication to help others become more like Christ?

In Renewing Communication, Colleen Derr shows that transformational communication needn’t be limited to the pulpit or classroom, but can include everyday interactions and relationships. Derr draws on decades of experience in education and church ministry to offer a holistic strategy for transformational communication. She guides readers through the entire communication process, from defining the need to determining next steps, and addresses a variety of channels, from formal teaching and preaching to small groups, written communication, and even casual conversations.

With particular care for the specific needs of children, teens, and adults, Derr addresses:

  • theories of human development
  • how to understand your audience and context
  • setting specific goals
  • nonverbal communication
  • effective techniques
  • using creativity
  • evaluation and assessment

 Above all, Derr emphasizes the role of the Holy Spirit as the agent of true transformation who is present in every conversation. Transformational communication powered by the Spirit must begin with a transformed communicator and take place through authentic, caring, and trusting relationships. Educators, students, church leaders, and those who minister to any age group will find guidance to communicate with hearers in a way that enables life-giving change.
