The Lost Art Of Listening
It seems that today's church world seems to be much more focused on TALKING than on LISTENING. People often ask me how to GROW their ministry or how to PREACH with more skill. But rarely, if ever, do people ask me how to LISTEN more effectively. I think INTENTIONAL LISTENING is one of the greatest gifts you can ever give to another human being.
Let me ask you a really important question in youth ministry: How good of a listener are you...really? In this Youth Leader's Coach, I share nine ways that you can raise your "L.Q." (Listening Quotient). Remember, it was Voltaire that said, "The ears are the highway to the heart." And after lots of years in youth ministry trenches, I promise you that intentional listening is a really, really big deal.
