SDMI Training Day

District SDMI Training Day 2017

‘A New Look This Year’          ‘A New Date This Year’

It is estimated that as many as 75% of all people learn, gather information, and live their daily lives without reading. They do so by listening and watching rather than by reading.

Rev. Ray Neu, Director of Orality Coaching for T4Global, created ‘Tell The Story’
teaching model for the Church of the Nazarene. He has travel through numerous countries demonstrating that ‘story telling’ is an effective tool for evangelism, discipleship, preaching, and even teaching theology.

Tell the Story is a powerful way for Teachers to teach.

Tell the Story is a powerful way for Pastors to preach.

Tell the Story is a powerful way for everyone to reach the unchurched.

You will learn through active demonstration a simple way to engage others in casual Bible story telling aimed at inviting them into the faith -- as Jesus did, through telling stories while meeting people right where they are. You will experience a method everyone can learn to do with just a bit of practice.

It is a great tool to get those inside and outside the church engaged in the Bible – through stories. You will not want to miss this year’s District SDMI Training Day.

Registration for this event is limited to 250 people. You must register no later than May 1.
NO COST!

We need the name of your church and how many will be attending from your church. Send this information to:

Dr. James Hicks - 4010 S. Falcon Dr. -- Bloomington, IN 47403 or register by email at bfcn@me.com
