Everything needed to help students write their God-stories (testimonies) from mission trips, camps, retreats, and events.


You probably experience an array of emotions when your mission trip, camp, retreat, or event you spent hours building comes to an end. After your catchup on sleep and multiple showers you might wonder what to do next. How do you use that trip to continue on in the lives of your group, church, families, and supporters? The answer is simply – by effectively and consistently sharing the stories of what God did.

We all know that sharing stories is important, but sometimes this can be challenging to organize. How exactly does sharing these stories play out? Well, this 2-Minute Story resource is the help you need to walk your students through the process of writing and sharing their stories and keep them organized once they do.

Mission trips, camps, retreats, and events can actually make more of an impact once you get home than when they took place if students learn to be expert story sharers. These stories can encourage your church body and create energy and advocacy that will prove priceless to your ministry.
