SCHOOL OF COMMUNICATION FOUNDATIONS (SCF)

 

SCF OVERVIEW

This three-month programme lays essential foundations in biblical communication while advancing the individual’s skill and confidence in speaking, writing and listening. It aims to sharpen a trainee’s ability to communicate clearly through cross-cultural and interpersonal dynamics and offer principles of preparing and delivering a message to a variety of audiences. Through provoking instruction and discussion, video evaluation, presentations and written assignments, individuals discover their place and potential as effective influencers in the public forum. 

FURTHER INFORMATION

The SCF seeks participants eager to learn about basic communication skills, before moving to a depth of understanding and growth in giving/receiving feedback, observation, and conflict resolution, before practising these in real-time. Beyond the written and oral learning, this school assists in deepening what it means to walk in fellowship as a local body of believers – integrating head, heart and Spirit, with knowledge, character and skills in application. The SCF offers a holistic approach to biblical communication and you may find your understanding of God, self and others move to a new level. It will require some humility, humour and active participation to step out of comfort zones, engage, take more risks and work hard, but we can do it together… 

Finally, by cultivating awareness, and exploring what it means to be fully present, fully alive – you will discover more who God made you to be as a communicator. The SCF is led by the Founder and Author of Communication: the facilitators are a motley crew of learners and disciples alongside you – with maybe a bit more life experience! If you’re up for the challenge and are willing to jump in and join us on the journey, you are welcome – whatever your story.
