The Gideons International
2013 International Convention
July 23- 28, 2013
Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel
Orlando, Florida


Our team has the responsibility of creating a 60 minute "break-out" session for the 2013 Gideon International Convention in Orlando, Florida. We are reminded by the International Program Committee that "the goal of the educational program is to continue to underline our objective in the Gideon Ministry, of seeing others won for the Lord Jesus Christ! As always, our main thrust needs to be on the vast opportunities God has placed before us."

This web site has been created as a collaboration tool for members of the team who will be presenting this break-out session. Here you will find our directive from the International Convention Program Committee (see below), members of our team (including biographical information), drafts of our presentation, and other resources. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the team leader, Mark McNett.

Following are excerpts from a letter sent from the Convention Program Committee
  • Develop a 60 minute breakout session on “Working with Media Presentations”.
  • As you prepare the outline and presentation, the committee would like for you to give consideration to how to best utilize media such as Powerpoint and videos in church presentations, Faith Fund rallies, Pastors Events and other Gideon presentations.
  • This session should also include practical tips on equipment and some do’s and don’ts.
  • The proposed outline is to be sent to Gary Richardson by January 1, 2013.
  • The initial outline should be as detailed as possible and include ideas of audiovisual aids, style of presentation, etc.
  • Your final paper should be submitted by April 1, 2013.
  • Please think internationally as you develop your presentation.
  • We encourage you to use PowerPoint, video clips and handouts, if applicable.
