Adventist Record editor Jarrod Stackelroth ran two days of writing workshops for the Western Australian Conference last month.
“It is really important to develop good communicators in our Church who can write and express their faith in a compelling and interesting way,” he said.
The group, made up mostly of church members from around Perth, had the opportunity to learn good writing techniques, and then try to implement them and get feedback from the rest of the group.
“I was thrilled with the quality of discussion and the presentations,” said Conference communication director Pastor Nathaniel Tan, who organised the weekend.
Run at Swan Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church, Mr Stackelroth also took the Sabbath morning service there.
On the Friday morning, Pastor Tan and Mr Stackelroth spent time in the WA Conference studio filming short social media videos that provide simple tips for being a better writer. The videos will be made available through Adventist Record and WA Conference social media channels.
