Fall 2020 Communicators for Christ Online Tour

Everyone who says they follow Jesus is a Communicator for Christ.

At Communicators for Christ conferences, we bring parents and students together to know not just what they believe - but how to talk about their faith.

Today, that means being leaders and communicators in both physical and digital spaces.

Professionals, executives, and business and organizational leaders will provide you with real world evidence and application of the skills your students need to succeed.

A few of the topics available for our coaches are listed here.

  • Vital Signs: 5 essential skills every student needs for success in education and in life. The research is clear. There are five essentials for success in education and in the workplace. These appear in university studies, marketplace research, and missions training. They are being integrated across educational programs in prep schools, home schools and underground Christian co-ops in cultures hostile to Christianity. Learn how to integrate them into your own home education as you prepare real students for the real world. Learn to measure, recognize, and develop these in your students.
  • Coaching Online: proven ways to connect and coach our students online. ICC coaches have been teaching, coaching, mentoring, and meeting online for years. We have developed some proven strategies for creating energizing learning environments, engaging coaching sessions, and inspiring meetings. We’ve also learned a lot about addressing and overcoming “zoom fatigue.” Believe it or not, it’s possible. We’ll share what we’ve been learning with you so you can give your zoom time some Vroom!

  • Communicating for Christ in Culture: once we identify with Christ, we are already communicating for Christ. The question now is, what and how will we represent him in our communities? We’ll explore some common misunderstandings and new approaches to Christian communication. There are also times we must agree to disagree. How do we present opposing views while working toward unity? Is it possibly to collaborate well with people we don’t agree with? We’ll discover techniques for practicing respectful, intentional disagreement as an essential part of collaborative experiences.
  • Coaching Communicators: Observe seasoned coaches in real live coaching sessions with growing communicators. Learn ICC’s methodology and some best practices to apply in your own coaching.
