What’s Your Story?

Story-telling is at the heart of the gospel commission. While on earth, Jesus modeled the art of effective story-telling and instructed His followers to carry His story to the ends of the earth. In addition, we each have stories to share of how God as touched our lives. Much of the loneliness and heartache in the world can be traced to the fact many are longing for someone to hear their stories and to help them find happy endings.

“What’s Your Story?” by Craig Wortmann. Written for the business world, this book has many applications that can be applied to ministry settings. It is easy to read and full of “stories” that illustrate the value of storytelling. A must read for everyone involved in leading people.
