Spoken Word; Written Word. Expanding Your Ministry
Communication is at the heart of ministry. Pastors are accustomed to teaching and encouraging through the spoken word, but the written word can live on long after a sermon is forgotten. In this class, Alton Gansky will discuss the power of the written word to take a local ministry and make it global. We will discuss the enduring power of the written word, writing opportunities for pastors, how to write a memorable nonfiction book, how to select ideas, the basics of nonfiction writing, making time to write, converting sermon and Bible study material into books, and much more.
