How do I schedule a seminar?

We conduct seminars throughout the year all across the country with one goal in mind – to motivate and convict hearts to trust the truth of God’s Word. We welcome the opportunity to speak in your area and are happy to provide the booking information below. We look forward to meeting you!

Scheduling a Seminar

All we need to start is an email or phone call from you expressing interest.
Set a date – Consider what time of year you want the seminar (i.e., spring, summer, fall, winter). Also consider conflicting events like holidays and school events.
Select a topic and schedule.
Get the word out.
Pray for open hearts and receptive minds.

A Typical Seminar Weekend

Most seminars consist of 5 lessons throughout the weekend broken out as follows:

  • Friday Evening
        Lesson One followed by Q/A
  • Saturday Evening
      Lesson Two
      Short break
      Lesson Three followed by Q/A
  • Sunday Morning
      Bible class – Lesson Four
      Worship – Lesson Five
  • Lunch
      Sunday Afternoon Worship – Lesson Six

We try very hard to tailor our seminars to fit your needs and are happy to customize the meeting to fit your needs. For instance, if you would like a separate time with the youth or families we will do our best to accommodate. Please discuss your thoughts, needs and preferences with us.

Available Topics

Our current Topic List includes a wide variety of subject matter intended to encourage, motivate and convict people to take action to draw themselves into a closer relationship with God. We encourage you to select topics that fit the needs of your congregation. We may make some suggestions in ordering them in a convenient way. If your group has needs for a topic not listed, let’s discuss additional options.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the cost?

Unlike some speakers, we do not have “set fees.” Instead, we ask the host congregation to cover travel expenses and provide a reasonable honorarium. We recognize some congregations have limited resources and we do not want money to keep you from hosting a seminar. Contact Rachel at 615-324-5870 to hear more about an average honorarium and to discuss your specific needs.

Can we use this seminar for evangelism?

YES! We hope you will! Let everyone in the community know about it. Use email, social media and be sure to keep the seminar in your prayers. Many friends, family, and coworkers will come to a meeting like this who might not come to a traditional “Gospel Meeting.” The current record is 26 different denominations at a single meeting.

What about advertising?

We try our best to help make hosting a seminar an easy experience by offering advertising materials 3-4 weeks before the seminar date. We can provide newspaper articles, radio spots, or sample social media posts. We will even be available for radio interviews the week before the seminar if you are able to get one scheduled at your local radio station.

What if I have more questions?
