Breakout Session

Turning Your Speaking Ministry into Your First Book Deal

With Janyre Tromp & Joel Armstrong

A book that synthesizes the central message and story of your speaking ministry is a wonderful tool to have on hand when you’re at events and to expand your reach online. But speaking is one thing, and writing a book is another. In this session, book editors Janyre Tromp and Joel Armstrong guide you through the process of distilling the core message of your ministry, creating an effective narrative and chapter structure for your book, and lacing your writing with illustrations, applications, and thoughtful questions from your speaking engagements.
