Ministry Communication Workshop

Pastors and staff looking to improve their speaking skills have found Ministry Communication Workshop to be a good resource for improvement. Pastors and staff with much speaking experience and those with little all report that Ministry Communication Workshop made a significant difference in their speaking ability.

Pastor – "I can’t imagine the eternal benefits that will be realized because of the investment of this workshop into the ministry of our church."

Veteran Staff Member – "Although I have been teaching and preaching for many years I found this workshop to be extremely valuable. I am looking forward to inculcating many of these principles in my future ministries."

Staff Member – "I never would have thought the mechanics of communication could make such a difference in how our message can be effectively communicated."

Staff Member – "It is absolutely critical that our communication be crystal clear and compelling as ministers of the gospel. This workshop helped me to take a huge step toward having the skills and tools for that kind of communication."

Staff Member – "I was stretched! This workshop pushed me to move out of my comfort zone and made me realize I can do it!"

Children’s Director – "I came to the workshop with a willing, but anxious spirit. I left with a new confidence for not only speaking in front of a group, but delivering something worth listening to."


Ministry Communication Workshop is a five-day morning to evening workshop. The workshop includes lecture time, individual coaching time and daily evaluated speeches. Since every part of the workshop is critical, those attending must agree to keep their calendar free during the five days so that nothing will be missed.

Abound schedules one workshop per year. This is open to pastors, male and female staff members, and their spouses.  Churches may schedule a workshop at their church for their church staff or invite other churches to attend. A workshop requires a minimum of six participants.
