THE STORIES WERE ALWAYS

MEANT TO COME ALIVE.

Simply The Story - a storytelling seminar

May 1st - May 5th, 2017

80% OF THE WORLD LEARN ORALLY.

GET TRAINED TO REACH THEM.

Simply The Story has a unique way of levelling the playing fields and allowing non-literate and literate alike to sit comfortably at the same table. The major focus in STS is to teach people how to prepare and share Bible stories and passages so that they, the storytellers, are touched first. Only then can they truly minister to others.

 

Inspired by the increasing reality of a world that does not prefer to read, by the rediscovery of Jesus’ amazing storytelling and questions as a form of ministry, Simply the Story (STS) has been born to meet a vital need globally – finding treasures in the Bible and leading others to discovery through discussion.

 

Experience what many missionaries, laymen and others are calling “the most significant and powerful tool for sharing God’s message and truth” with others that they have learned, resulting in the “greatest effect in fruit and sheer fun in life and ministry”.

Come to YWAM Restenäs on the beautiful Swedish West Coast at the start of May where you’ll discover and learn practical, powerful skills for evangelism and making disciples through a personalised training & coaching workshop offered by STS.
