I love to come speak to your group about the power of storytelling! I’m available for workshops and storytelling events, churches, ministry teams, camps and retreat centers, and corporate organizations.
Connect with me to create a custom event for your group, or choose from the following speaking topics:
Storytelling: Because you DO have one and it DOES matter!
The science of storytelling says we’re all created to hear stories. Learn how that works and how to share your story for your business or your ministry.
Storytelling: Share Your Story, Share Your Jesus
Biblical truth meets the Science of Storytelling in this speaking topic. Billy Graham preached under big-top tents into a culture that was looking for Truth. Our culture isn’t looking for truth: “Whatever works for you, works for you, maaann!” Here’s how to step into that cultural moment to share your story — and share your Jesus.
Storytelling for Youth Ministry
We must keep sharing God stories so that the next generation will know Him and what He has done. Here’s how you can incorporate storytelling into your youth ministry — and build visual reminders of the work God is doing.
Minding the Generation Gap
The Generation Gap only grows when we don’t understand each other. As a Millennial who was raised by Boomers and whose siblings are Xers, Emily can help you better understand Millennials…And maybe give some pointers on how to Mind the Gap. (Hint: We need you more than you think.) Based on Emily’s blog series, “Minding the Generation Gap.”
A Theology of Remembering: Storytelling in the Bible
Writing is modern-day altar-building, just as the nation of Israel was directed to do in Joshua 4. Writing is how we remember, and remembering helps us trust God for whatever’s next, whether that’s crossing a deep river, changing jobs, having children, paying the next bill, or just getting up in the morning!
Session 1: Joshua 4—The First Altar
Session 2: Matthew 8—The Forgetful 12
Session 3: I Corinthians 11—Jesus’ Call to Remember
Student Ministry Topics
Emily is passionate about student ministry and has spoken to student groups on a variety of topics, including biblical book studies, faith and doubt, prayer, narrative stories from the Gospels, and culturally relevant topics for students.
