Telling Our Stories: The Practice of Biblical Storytelling in Ministry
Telling scripture by heart deepens the worship/education experience for all generations, helping both teller and witnesses to make strong connections with God’s stories. Join Casey FitzGerald in learning the techniques to story-learning, and spend time considering how a storytelling ministry might empower those in your contexts to go deeper with scripture. Workshops will be fun and practical–you will go home ready to tell and inspired to get others telling!
