How to craft a message, steward the message in a community or platform, how to get bookings and referrals for bookings.
Session 1: Ready to Serve
Before any anointed Bible teacher or speaker finds their voice, builds their audience or uses their gifts to steward the gospel message they display several proven character qualities. This session will focus on how to partner with your local church and enjoy their oversight and accountability in your ministry even if you are not on church staff, how to make yourself available to grow into leadership opportunities, how to recruit and empower a personal prayer team for your speaking ministry, and where to focus your service to your community of faith to build up your gift of preaching and teaching.

Session 2: Bible Nerds Unite
Every female preacher exercising their gifts to the Glory of God, by the power of His Spirit and for the good of the Body of Christ is doing so because they have cultivated study rhythms. In short, they are Bible nerds. This session will assume basic hermenuitic skills are already obtained and being practiced and will build upon that knowledge base with direction on which go-to resources help illuminate the scriptures. The strength of the message is in the devotion to study the scriptures.

Session 3: Message Preparation
You’ve likely got notes scribbled on napkins, spread out on several journals or voice memos recorded on your phone as inspiration hits you. The key to delivering a message that moves your audience into action is all about discovering the best way you craft the message. All of your talks will include proven elements like an engaging introduction, intriguing transition statements and a powerful close. But the magic is contextualizing message prep to fit your unique speaking and study style.

Session 4: Life Message
Aspiring and up and coming female speakers need one go to message in their back pocket. If you only had one chance with every audience of your dreams what would be the key message you would want to communicate? What scripture or truth keeps coming up in all of your teaching? That message is your life message and will be the keystone of your first speaking engagements.
Session 5: Stewarding the Message
Now you’re ready to start booking engagements and to do so you’ll need plug and play event themes and talks to support your calendar. We will take your life message from session 4 and repurpose it to fit a 35 minute message, a 1 hour breakout session, and a 2-4 retreat sessions.
Session 6: Raising your hand
It’s time to build your web pages highlighting your speaking gifts, it’s time to raise your hand when your church needs help with any learning environment on campus, and it’s time to tell your trusted friends and ministry contacts you’re eager to serve. I’ll share the most effective and non creepy, non self promoting ways to put the word out that you’re available.
