NBS Mobile Free Biblical Storytelling Lessons

The Network of Biblical Storytellers International is passionate about the art and spiritual practice of learning and sharing biblical stories - God's stories, which connect with our stories - by heart. This series of videos shares a number of ways to learn and tell the stories.

 

These videos refer to an online community, or signing up online with a friend. These features had to be cancelled due to abuse; we apologize for that!  

This series is designed specifically with young urban folks for whom English is a second language in mind. So all the lessons are short videos designed to be viewed on a smartphone. Links are given to written materials too. 

If you have questions or neat stories to share about biblical storytelling, please ask to join the NBS TOGether: The Online Guild community on Google+. Learning and telling are great fun with a friend, or a community!

These are our presenters:  Biblical Storytellers Laura Schuh and Jason Chesnut
