This fall, we’re excited to be hosting a Simply the Story training seminar right here in Northern Wisconsin. Simply the Story is an international ministry that trains storytellers to dig deeply into the narratives of Scripture and uncover spiritual truth for themselves.
Then, these storytellers are equipped to pass these stories and skills on to others, creating a growing impact in their communities, and around the world. For more details on the program and organization, visit their website: simplythestory.org
