Enhancing Your Networking Skills
I was gonna give this talk the cheeky title of “Networking In Ministry Without Getting Fired.” This is because sometimes networking is viewed as negative or even sinful. But it is the opposite. It is positive and can grow your ministry. And if you neglect this tool in your toolbox, you will not develop into the person God has called you to be. So learn why you should network, how to better network and how to help others network.
We’ll look at the biblical support and foundation for networking, and we’ll walk through case studies of positive and negative examples. Attendees will walk away with a few things:
- 3 reasons why networking is essential to grow your ministry.
- 9 very practical ways to step up your networking game.
- 2 generous means of helping someone else network.
