Hurdling the Language Barrier in Preaching

Abstract
In a culture that is increasingly global, pastors are often required to preach to congregations in cross-cultural and cross-language ministry situations. Understanding the language differential and using particular rhetorical techniques can facilitate a clear, effective transmission of the message. This project explores how a non-native English speaker can best preach to a native English speaking congregation and shows that a combination of vocal exercises, partnering with the congregation and the use of narrative preaching styles yield excellent results in preaching effective sermons in a cross-cultural, cross-language situation.
