Communicating Biblical Truth through the Media with Clarity, Creativity, and Confidence

Description

In today's global cyber-village, stories on issues at the interface of Christianity and culture generate a huge amount of media interest and publicity. This creates great opportunities to impart a Christian worldview perspective for those who are willing to take the necessary risks and seize the opportunities on offer. It is essential that a Christian view is heard clearly and is able to shape media dialogue and public policy, and yet many Christians seem reluctant to put their heads above the parapet and speak out. Responding effectively to these opportunities requires courage, planning, monitoring, wisdom, and grace. Training can help, but the best way of learning is to get involved and learn on the job. Based on extensive experience in the UK campaigning and speaking on issues at the interface of Christianity and medicine, this talk examines how to get involved with attention to messaging, media training, consultancy, delivery and use of social media.
