Taking Visual Notes in Church

Workshop

Sermon Sketchnotes is the visual note-taking that I share on my social feeds and that you’ve seen others do. So why is this the perfect time to learn? Watching church from home gives you the freedom to: setup an area just like you like * not worry about any curious onlookers * and most of all — pause and rewind as necessary PLUS with what’s going on you’ll get to engage my favorite benefits of sketch noting: * It takes concentrating – no room for anything else but the sermon * It really puts the Word in your heart – you’re paying closer attention and you remember more * It really makes notes that are fun to revisit for you – and share with others. But I’ve already shared Learning Sermon Sketchnotes class as a life group, online pop-up group, and at Bible Journaling Retreat. Now here is an invitation for you to join us as well!

After years of being a youth pastor, worship pastor, and then executive pastor, Shawn took some time away from ministry to find ways to reach more people outside of the typical church ways he had been around all of his life. During that time he branched out and got his degree in design, studied multiple marketing methods and strategies, and found ways to merge both and apply them to the church context. He is now the marketing director at Faith Promise Church in Knoxville, TN, where he uses those skills to create a branding and marketing experience that helps draw in thousands of first-time guests every year.
