Our stories are
one of the most powerful things about us. Although people can try to argue
about the authenticity of Christianity’s claims, no one can argue with what
Christ has done on a personal level in someone’s life. Someone once said, “A
person with a story is never at the mercy of a person with an argument.”
Stories release hope and faith into the atmosphere and are a great way to reach
the lost, the broken, and the hurting. In this workshop we will learn more
about why it is on God’s heart for us to be sharing our stories, how to
effectively write and share a story, and how to incorporate them into your life
and your ministry, whether in the church, in the workplace, or at home.
