Building A Booming Speaking & Writing Ministry

Shannon Ethridge

Marketing is KEY to building ANY business, and a speaking and writing ministry is no different. S.H. Britt said, “Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. YOU know what you are doing, but nobody else does.” Indeed, we must let others know what we have to offer. But how can we do this effectively without looking like we are “marketing ourselves?” One of the best ways to organically advertise your ministry is to establish both a speaking and writing platform. This allows your voice to be heard, your face to be recognized, your message to be magnified, and creates a “breadcrumb trail” to your door. This workshop will help you (1) Craft a strong speaking bio that will leave a lasting impression, (2) Identify the most common psychological road blocks hindering the marketing success of any minister, counselor, coach, writer, or speaker, as well as strategies for overcoming these road blocks, and (3) Explore unique marketing strategies familiar only to the most experienced professionals.

As an experienced outliner and a popular speaker both inside and outside the church Elizabeth Murphy knows how to do just that.

Being Authentic in a World Filled with Flash
Jen Ferguson


You have a purpose and you have a story. You feel God’s call to use your story in ministry, but how do you effectively do this? There are so many ways to reach people that it can seem overwhelming.

New clothes, new technology, a bigger platform, more “likes” - all promising they can make you BRIGHTER, BOLDER, and BIGGER. But what if what the world’s selling you just isn’t you? How do you discern between what things feel outside your comfort zone and what is truly not your spiritual gift. This workshop will help you identify how to fulfill your purpose, how to resist the temptation to try to be all things to all people, and to keep your eyes focused on the One who gets the glory for our story.
