For Faith Communities

For Faith Communities: Are you…

  • A pastor who wants to strengthen your congregational involvement, attendance, community, and/or youth connection?
  • An interfaith advocate who is eager to find ways to cross boundaries, share and learn, and connect people across dividing lines?
  • A religious educator who seeks new approaches to increase youth involvement, enliven children’s ministry, and/or enrich adult learning in your congregation?
  • A preacher who would welcome additional resources for the challenge of preaching week after week (after week!)?
  • A seminary professor who would like theological education to include exploration of the power of storytelling?
  • An organizer for your community looking for new ideas for meaningful retreats and seminars, small group presentations and/or large group fellowship events?
  • A worship leader wanting to incorporate deeply engaging practices in your services?
  • Someone who wants to bridge the “digital divide” between those who are comfortable with digital communications and social media, and those who are not? Between the fragmenting effects of digital communication, and the sense of community that causes ministry to thrive?

STORYTELLING offers unique opportunities to explore, communicate, cross boundaries, empathize, imagine, experience and share in such journeys!
