Event Planning Tips for Apologetics Ministry Leaders
Ever dream of bringing a special apologetics conference to your church? Today, I’m launching a new series of monthly videos for ministry leaders who have a vision for organizing their first apologetics event. In these clips, I’ll share some quick “tips from the road” that will help you begin to think about some of the most important parts of organizing your first event.
Today’s tip is about not trying to jump into event coordination all by yourself. Don’t think you’ve got to be Superman or Wonder Woman here. In fact, think “The Fantastic Four” or “X-Men” instead. Because teamwork is a key part of running a conference without going crazy!
Event Tip #1 Build a Leadership Team
Build a leadership team to help you organize your apologetics conference. Sharing the workload with trusted people who can manage each area of responsibility will help you work smarter and not harder when it comes to bringing an accessible apologetics event to your church.
Talk to people at your church and even those who have done this before in your area. Who do you know who might share the vision God has given you?
Here are links to speakers and organizations I mentioned in this video:
I created a series of webinar-style screencasts that will help you plan, organize and coordinate a successful apologetics event. Sign-up for my free course, called How to Run an Accessible Apologetics Conference, and you’ll get a practical series of 6 short lessons. You’ll learn how to:
- Strategically plan your apologetics event
- Set the best ticket price
- Promote your event
- Streamline registration
- Take care of your speakers…and more!
I’m excited about this resource I created with my friend, Dena Davidson. She’s coordinated some major apologetics events in Northern California, including one with over 3,000 participants! Sign-up below.
