5) How Can You Help Others Learn Bible Stories More Effectively?

This past week, Mark Snowden told us about a professional storyteller named John Walsh. “He uses a highly interactive procedure in BibleTelling training to involve everyone in a larger group in the action. According to my notes at an ION workshop, John said that after telling the story, he gets them to practice it. He shows them a storyboard that he uses to remember the main scenes. His storyboard is simply a set of cards or posters with simple stick figures depicting the action in the Bible story. John divides the group into pairs and asks them to use his storyboard to retell the story to each other. Then he asks them in larger groups to describe the locations in the story. He retells the story. At that point he divides them into creative art groups. One group develops a drama; another works out a pantomime. A third group creates a song and still another paints pictures of the story. Then he has each group present their production to the whole group. By the time John is finished, his listeners have heard or experienced the story twelve times!” Learn more about Mark and his co-workers at

7) Bible Storying (Orality) Can Win an entire Village or Town! —

Dear friends and colleagues: In our mission structures and strategies, we’ve heard exciting things about the strategic work of Bible storying (orality).  Entire villages and towns have been transformed from faithless to the faithful because of the simple but profound work of teaching scripture through the spoken word.  Bible Storying can be used strategically and successfully in any ministry from local/national outreach to international work; whether at the local coffee shop or with a group of students or adults.

 

Because we believe so deeply in this approach to missions, Simply Tell the Story has partnered with StoryRunners to form a 3-day training conference June 7-9 in Louisville, KY.  This is our first training of this kind in the Louisville area, and it will equip you to use storying as you engage with people about the Word.  You will learn how to use story sets, from creation to Christ with any one in any context.  Register today!
