HIGHLIGHTS OF THE EXPERIENCE

One of the most interesting parts of our festival is the interaction between our storytellers and the best biblical performance criticism scholars in the world, who gather prior to the Festival Gathering for a seminar. You can meet these scholars and participate in small group discussions with them during the Festival. We also have fabulous,  hands-on workshops for every level of storyteller from beginner to master storyteller, amazing performances from our featured storytellers and national and international member storytellers, deep-well worship, an Epic telling from the Bible and the best fellowship you’ll ever experience at any conference!
