We invite you to bring your team to Nashville, TN on Thursday, March 1st, 2012 to join Youth Ministry Leaders from all over the Southeast who will gather at Lipscomb University to learn, train and think about “The Three Stories of Youth Ministry.”
One of our featured speakers will be Michael Novelli, author of “Shaped By The Story.” Michael will teach and train your team through HOW to teach the Bible narratively in a way that will ENGAGE your students with the Story of God. He will give you dozens of practical ideas that will help your students not only LEARN the Story of God, but be able to EXPERIENCE it, KNOW it, TELL it and SEE THEMSELVES in it.
After ten years in youth ministry, Michael Novelli felt like he had tried everything to help his students connect with the Bible. Then, a missionary introduced him to a unique, ancient way to engage people with the Bible through story. Michael learned the art of “Storying,” a sequential telling of Bible stories followed by a time of creative retelling and in-depth dialogue. God used this process to completely transform his youth group as they found themselves experiencing God in a whole new way. For several years Michael has been developing narratives and training to help others discover the art of “Storying,” a dialogical approach to Bible learning.
