Christian Authors Guild Hosts Coffee & Quill

A Special Saturday Workshop for Christian Writers

One Day workshop for Christian Writers

 September 14, 2019

Registration starts at 9 a.m.
Continental Breakfast provided


Guest Speaker: Patricia Holbrook


Patricia Holbrook is the President of Soaring with Him Ministries, author, columnist, wife and mom.


Opening Session:  Courageous Faith

In this encouraging message, Patricia draws principles taken from an account hidden in an obscure book of the Bible to encourage you to persevere in your calling, regardless of the obstacles and fears you may face. You will be challenged to allow God to renew your vision… give you a fresh sense of purpose… and steadfast persistence.

“For I am confident in this very thing, that He who started a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.” (Philippians 1:6)

Breakout session: Social Media, Publishing, and Ministry Focus

You have a calling. A calling to write. You have a passion. A passion to share your God-given talents and experiences with a broader audience, whether by writing books, blogging or hosting a podcast. And yet, you may often feel like everyone is passing you on this apparent “race” to get in front of publishers and increase your audience.

In this breakout session, Patricia will talk about Three topics that can be daunting to any writer: Social Media, Publishing and Ministry Focus. Patricia will share a different perspective on ministry growth and calling, a perspective which may be a bit different from what you have ever heard before.
