Session Overview (Monthly)

I.M.P.A.C.T - A framework for development as a writer and communicator. 

1 - Inventory: I'll send you an inventory assessment to complete and discuss, and I'll break down how I've taken inventory over the last 2 decades (who, why, what, where, how's) to develop my skills and live out my calling.

2 - Methods: We will look at practical ways to seek God's kingdom first in relation to writing and speaking. We'll talk about the 'beauty' and 'blahs' of communicating, and work on SMART goals to maximize impact. 

3 - Plan:  Writing and speaking can be never ending projects of creativity and tweaking. We will talk though boundaries, and how to effectively put God first in your heart and hard work. We will talk about how important your personal story is, and how to use yours to impact those around you.

4 - Administration: We will discuss the nitty-gritty details that go into having an effective writing or speaking ministry. Topics may include: business plans, contracts, delegation, vision statements, blog and website content, talk content, event planning, speaking fees… all the nuts and bolts of the less glamorous side of ministry

5 - Communication: How do you connect and collaborate with your community? This session will cover using social media, effective messaging, and the use of stories, questions and scripture to grow ministry impact. Optional topics: booking events, guest posts, getting book contracts, scaling messages and repurposing content, conflict resolution and curbing ministry competition and jealousies.

6 - Track: Evaluating what’s working and what changes need to take place. Content curating (organizing messages, and methods). Assess progress and determine next steps.
