Over the last few months we’ve been dipping our toes into a new ministry: providing formal media training to people working in churches and Christian organisations.
In July, we hosted 37 people for an hour-long webinar facilitated by the Wilberforce Foundation during which we covered how to speak to journalists and some practical tips for being interviewed.
We are planning a series of more in-depth, in-person, half-day seminars involving six of our CBA staff, which will include a range of interactive exercises.
As demand for media training grows, we anticipate doing more to help Christian leaders become more confident with their public engagement. •
