The Lecture Phase

To equip people with the communication skills needed to bring transformation to individuals, communities and areas of society

This training program will give you essential foundations for biblical communication. Through teaching, discussion, and many opportunities to put into practice what you are learning - you can learn new communication skills and strengthen those you already have.
Therefore, it will increase your skill and confidence in speaking, writing and listening. The school will also equip you to prepare and deliver messages to a variety of audiences.

What you'll experience during the lecture phase.

Communicating into Current Societal Issues

So often we know what we believe, but struggle to communicate it well, and as a result, we don't communicate in a relevant way. During the school, we will have debates and discussions over issues like euthanasia, abortion, purity and more. We will watch videos and welcome speakers to bring context and input into topics currently in the public eye.

Create Visual and Written Media Tools

Throughout the school, we want to focus on giving you practical skills and tools that you can take away and use. We will create media items that will be used with further projects. In addition, you will learn how to design,create and work in a team context.

He Came as a Witness About the Light...

John the Baptist came to prepare the way for Jesus. As communicators, we have this same opportunity - to prepare the way for others to hear the message of the Kingdom. We will learn what it means to fear the Lord in our communication, how to honour and encourage and use our words to inspire, to motivate and to be a tool for transformation.

We will work with the local church and NGO's that are working in similar areas to our focus. You will definitely get to taste the great food and experience their culture first hand.

Create and Implement a Communication-based Advocacy Strategy
