Network of Biblical Storytellers, Int'l
March 1, 2015
The Network of Biblical Storytellers, Int'l. annual conference, the one and only Festival Gathering, is an openly welcoming, ecumenical event that has celebrated the Bible as story for over 37 years. It is packed with dynamic workshops, networking, thought-provoking keynotes, inspiring worship built around the Bible’s stories and almost non-stop opportunities to tell and hear Bible stories.
Pastors, laity and Christian educators will find opportunities for enlivening conversation and new storytelling skills for education and ministry. Receive a refreshing awareness of the Bible as story, plus new storytelling ideas for worship, Sunday School, Bible study and small group leadership. Expect joyful interaction with other creative souls from across the nation and the world!
Our 2015 Festival Gathering will be held from Wednesday, August 5th through Saturday, August 8th at the National 4-H Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland near Washington, DC. Schedule your travel to arrive by 10 on Wednesday, Aug. 5 and depart after 1p.m. on August 8 (so you won't miss the opening and closing worship services!)
Registration runs from 8:30 a.m.-11a.m. on August 5. The Festival begins with worship at 11a.m. August 5 and programming continues (almost back to back!) morning through evening each day. On Saturday, August 8, closing worship is at 11a.m. and the conference officially ends after lunch (lunch is included in your registration).
