IFD192 – Write Ministry
Course Dates: Use button below to hear about new dates
You know when you are called to write — God gives you a passion to reach out to others with your words whether in fiction, drama, curriculum, devotions, or articles. But if you need the encouragement and feedback on where to find your “place” or how to engage and grow faith, this course is for you! This week-long course spends two days on vision and plan, two days on writing and revision, two days on sharing and follow-up, with a Sabbath for reflection and gratitude.
Take the time to write and start this unique form of ministry with a blend of creative collaborative study and practical application. Why only a week? Writers often need impossible looming deadlines to get more done than they would with longer ones.
The instructor has been published in Christian fiction, drama, curriculum by mainstream publishers and her books are all over the world. Currently the devotions, articles, and marketing copy she writes are published at her current workplace with readership from a few dozen to over a thousand at a time.
