WHAT IS THE 39-STORIES CHALLENGE?
Your Christian community is full of people with powerful, life-transforming stories to share with the world. What if you had a tool to help tell their stories efficiently and effectively? As a leader, are you eager to move past superficial relationships and into a deeper and more authentic community? Are you looking relevant ways to obey the command of Christ which says “to be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8)? This can all happen through sharing your stories with one another, and with the world.
This practical leadership guide, companion to 39 Stories (a 40-day devotional eBook available on 39-Stories.com), will walk you through the process we embarked on when we produced our book of compelling, real-life accounts of faith and perseverance in the midst of life’s most challenging circumstances. The 39 Stories Challenge will explain the 5 steps in creating a book of your own. It also includes all the tools we used for project management, formatting, team formation, technical/legal considerations and more. It can save you hours of hassle and unfortunate mistakes.
How will a collaborative project like 39 Stories benefit your church or community?
-You’ll grow stronger and closer as you become more vulnerable and transparent.
-You’ll be better equipped to evangelize as you develop a culture of testifying about God’s activity in your lives.
