May 16, 2012—Bible study leaders are blocking off the afternoon of May 17 to attend the online 2012 Bible Study Expo.
The event will feature interviews and opportunities to connect with Bible study book authors, Bible study leadership trainers, and other Bible Study leaders. New Hope Publishers’ own author Kathy Howard will be among the special guests.
To attend the online Expo (May 17, 1–5 Central), which is 100% free, visit BibleStudyExpo.com.
Tapping into modern technology, the 4-hour event revolves around 15-minute interviews with authors to be aired over Internet radio. Guests may listen via computer from home, office or car, or on their cell phone from anywhere.
Harnessing women’s ability to multitask, guests are invited to listen to author interviews while attending Facebook and Twitter parties.
Before and after the Expo, guests are encouraged to download up to 6 MP3 training modules, which were developed specifically for Bible study leaders. Topics include: How to Launch a Study, How to Lead Great Discussions, How to Handle the Tough Stuff, Adding Fun to Your Bible Study, and more.
“Bible Study leaders don’t get much attention!” says Expo hostess, Marnie Swedberg. “The Bible Study Expo gives the authors, publishers, and sponsors a chance to applaud what’s being done by these unsung heroes in the trenches every single week. It’s all done online during this fun afternoon set aside to remember them, encourage them, and celebrate what they are doing, while providing them with practical help and a sense of community.”
This year’s guest lineup includes Kathy Howard, Sheila Walsh, Pam Farrel, Babbie Mason, Tammie Head, and about a dozen other authors with recently released Bible study books.
To attend the online Expo, which is 100% free, visit BibleStudyExpo.com. While there, register in the drawings for free Bible study books and begin to connect directly with the Bible Study Expo hostesses and book authors via your favorite social networking sites.
