Date: Recording of workshop held on Fri. September 21, 2018 (Approx. 1 hr)
Mars Hill Impromptu is an event that can be applied to any aspect of life, regardless of where you are or who you hang out with. I think that MHI is one of the most beneficial events for competitors because it helps train them in how to connect culture and Christianity outside the speech and debate world. Throughout my time at college, I have been able to share the Gospel with numerous people by just talking about a popular song or movie. It truly is such an amazing event, and I think that every competitor should take part in it!
The following topics will be covered in my MHI workshop:
– How to write an effect synopsis
– How to develop a theme for each topic
– How to systematically build the bridge between culture and Christianity
– How to be conversational with rhetoric and body language
– How to share the Gospel in a conversational manner
– How to maximize the efficiency of your prep time
I hope you all can attend this workshop! It definitely will be very informative, yet fun and exciting as well!
