Stories that Matter: Introduction
Thursday, March 18, 4-5:00 pm

Stories have the power to inform as well as transform us. There is no greater way to connect to your audience - whether that's church members, visitors, or your community at large - than through the power of narrative. In this intro to the Stories that Matter Series, we’ll discuss your communication goals and generate creative ideas for compelling story arcs that inspire your audience. I hope you'll go on this 3-session journey of storytelling with us. It's going to be great! Register Here.
