Become an Author
Make your mark in this world!
CCC has taken the decision to open-source the writing of the CoffeeChat material to you. We would like to empower you to write your own CoffeeChat issue that we will share with the world.
This is how it will work:
- You let us know that you want to write an issue.
- We’ll send you the Excel template (all the instructions and guides are written into the template. You can also watch the Author’s Tutorial Video here). It looks like this…
- Save the template and send the saved work to us.
- We’ll edit it with you.
- We’ll publish it.
- You’ll make you mark!
More about this idea:
There is so much we can learn from one another that it seems silly to limit the movement of the Holy Spirit to a few people. The idea behind this is to offer the Christian a tool whereby they could have an impact on the world in an exciting way. In short, we are providing this tool to help you live up to your Christian faith and responsibility by making your mark in the world for Christ.
We believe that you have an idea that could guide CoffeeChatConnect groups and help them to grow their faith by using this simple tool.
If you are intimidated by this and not sure if you can write an issue but feel you would like to try, that’s ok. We will help you as much as we can. Or, Why not try…
- Write one issue as a group.
- Write one with a friend.
- Tell your friend to write one.
You are under no pressure to complete an issue if you cannot write one. There is no pressure. However, we will try help you succeed. Because we are cool that way.
