It looks like my trip to train new Campus Crusade for Christ music staff in Brazil will be in March. My Keynote Creative Communications Group (KCCG) teammate Julie Sanders will come along to help me equip them to do the same kind of communication coaching that we do. We’ll teach them to coach others in skills like:
delivering a message through eye contact, facial expression, gestures, stage movement, and vocal inflection;
putting into words how God is at work in your life;
planning concerts for worship or evangelism.
PLEASE PRAY for dates to be finalized for my training trip to Brazil in March, and for other needed preparations
It’s probably safe to say that weekly meetings are the most consistent public face-time any Campus Crusade movement has on a campus. But a lot of students sit on pins and needles every week just waiting for that week’s blunder. In light of that, Campus Crusade staff at the University of Kentucky asked KCCG to come and train the students who plan their weekly meeting. So we sent five staff who taught foundational principles and then helped the students actually plan some of their upcoming meetings. Since worship music plays an important role in weekly meetings, our staff also led workshops for the vocalists, instrumentalists and sound techs in the student worship band. One Keynote trainer said “It was overall a super weekend! So much fun and so rewarding. The students were like sponges and soaked up the input.” PLEASE PRAY for more opportunities for KCCG to train student weekly meeting teams and worship bands
Here are a few of the things happening around Keynote:
Last month I asked you to pray for the blackSoil project’s Australia tour. During 12 outreaches in 12 days in nine venues, 1100 high school & middle school students heard the gospel, 217 wanted to know more about God, and 75 started a relationship with Christ!
2009 Summer Project participant Ben Dooley organized an outreach concert with other musicians in his home country of Thailand. Ben was blown away at the response: they played for 200 high school and middle school students and 100 accepted Christ!
Applications are coming in for this year’s Summer Project (June 3 – July 28, 2010). Do you know any student filmmakers, musicians, web designers, or other creatives looking for opportunities to share their faith in the context of their art and day-to-day life? If so, it’s not too late for them to apply at http://www.keynotesummerproject.org.
for the follow up of the students who responded to Christ during the blackSoil project’s Australia tour and Ben Dooley’s concert in Thailand
that God will draw students to Keynote’s Summer Project to use their creative talents to advance His kingdom.
