🎧 Leading Differently Together | Evangelist

WITH GUEST: Ellen Graf-Martin

DESCRIPTION

Wendi Park is joined by Ellen Graf-Martin, who brings a wealth of experience from her missionary background to her expertise in marketing and communications. Ellen opens up about the pivotal role of evangelism in her life, illustrating how her passion for storytelling informed her journey to founding Graf-Martin Communications, a company dedicated to enhancing the voice and impact of organizations promoting hope and justice.

We go into the theology of evangelism, the transformative power of personal stories, and the strategic importance of crisis communication plans for charities. Ellen shares insights drawn from working with The Chosen in Canada, challenges traditional perceptions around the relevance of Jesus in contemporary society, and underscores the significance of contextualizing messages to genuinely connect with diverse audiences.

Throughout the discussion, humility, practicality, and the ability to truly listen emerge as critical themes when sharing one's spiritual journey.
