Simplify The Message, Multiply The Impact with Talbot Davis

Show Notes

Show Notes:

Welcome to the show.

Today we’re talking with author and pastor Talbot Davis. Talbot has been a pastor for almost 30 years.

He had a revelation of sorts a few years ago where he realized that the sermon outline like he had been doing, with fill in the blanks, alliteration, quippy points that all start with the same letter – that this approach was not making the impact with his people that he desired.

He heard Andy Stanley and others that influenced him to move to a one point message approach. Sermons with only one singular takeaway.

Join us today as we answer these questions:
– How does he do it?
– How does he craft a message with only one clear bottom line?
– What is his framework?
– How does he start his sermons?
– Does he preach off the cuff or with a Manuscript?
– What are the lasting benefits or success stories of simplifying the message?

This and more, on today’s episode!
