No matter how many hours you spend preparing a sermon or lesson, something simple or avoidable could be keeping your audience from hearing the message. It could be a subconscious habit you didn't realize you had, a style of delivery that isn't connecting with your audience, or even a volume problem (that could be easily solved with some microphone adjustments). By taking time to obtain feedback from a select group, you can gain valuable insight that will make your preaching and teaching much more effective.
This 17-page resource will give you practical ideas for selecting a group, gathering their feedback, and using it to improve your teaching so that your audience hears your message.
