Episode 129: Get Ready for the Big Stage

Feb 27, 2023

What do you consider a BIG stage? How many people are in the room? Is it 100, 500, 3,000? Whatever you consider to be “big”, when God calls you to it, you’ll feel right at home. You won’t feel lost, you’ll know you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. Even if your name is the least known on that poster, you’ll still know that you are meant to be there.

The past few weeks have been leading up to this final episode of the series. This wrap-up will explore tips for getting ready and comfortable for taking the big stage.

Highlights from this episode include:

  • Are you ready for the big stage? (1:32)
  • Multi-platform events (2:07)
  • Challenges of speaking at multi-day events (4:23)
  • Are you ready to step into a large room? (5:12)
  • How will you bring joy to the audience? (9:58)

If you’ve prepared, practiced, and started small, then you’re ready. Regardless of the size of the stage, you’ll be ready for it when He calls you. Even if you don’t end up on a “big” stage, whatever path God takes you on is the right one. I’d love to know how this mini-series about taking the big stage has helped you. What did you like best about it?
