NWI: MasterClass Comes Alive In Spain

Added 20 February 2005 View full list    Print version    
What do you get when you bring together 45 church and ministry leaders from various corners of Spain and introduce them to world-class communications training, in a hi-tech media package?

You get MasterClass Spain 2005!

This first Next Wave International™ MasterClass in Spain – and the first in southern Europe – was an outstanding success according to reports already coming in via event organizer, Juanito Jonson, senior pastor of the Palabras de Poda Church.

'From the first session,' said Juanito, 'We could see from the enthusiastic reaction of the leaders that they had never experienced anything like MasterClass before.'

'The response was so positive and people literally can't wait for the next MasterClass in Spain.'

Spain's famous Costa del Sol has long had a reputation for sunny beaches and holiday fever, but it is also the home of a growing Christian presence, and the base of a network of churches sprinkled across Spain.

For two days, Mal Fletcher introduced the leaders to the latest in communications theory and practical skills. The training also covered an introduction to the use of established and emerging media, including TV and the net.

After the event, Mal said, 'This was another Next Wave International™ pioneer experience. The exciting thing for me was to see how quickly these hungry leaders adapted to the fast pace and substantial content we were throwing at them.'

Plans are already in formation for the next MasterClass in Spain in 2006 – possibly over two cities, in the north and the south.

Watch the MasterClass Online website, for more on this. Soon, you will also be able to hear samples of the material presented in Spain – with Spanish language translation.

I accidentally came across your EDGES programme on Robotics whilst studying nanotechnology. I'm not Christian, but I want to compliment you on being much more scientific than I would have expected.

As a Care Home Manager for older people...[I see that] the culture of the family unit has changed, but I'm heartened by those that come to work as carers & give quality care & love to the residents.

Thanks so much for visiting Speak The Word Church International (Minneapolis). I am a baby boomer who sat with a GenXer - we both knew that what you said was right on. It made me think. I like that.
