Story-centric Strategies for Oral Communities
Seminar Overview: Eighty percent of the world (including Americans) are story-centric or oral learners. Most people prefer to learn and are more likely to be influenced through stories and music than through reading and writing. How do we teach, with clarity and accuracy, a listening world to hear and respond to God's Word? In this "hands-on" seminar, we will work to equip participants with story-centric strategies for sharing and studying the Scripture in order to impact unreached, unengaged communities
