VIC | Dave Edgren |
Biblical and values-based storyteller, children’s author and pastor who believes in the power of Story.
“I don’t pretend to be a believer but if I were I would seek out Mr Edgren’s ministry. Why? Because he doesn’t try to “prove” Jesus to you. What he really wants is to share the joy and the color he obviously enjoys through his belief in Jesus. After watching his videos, I have no doubt that his are genuine emotions. This is what sets him above other preachers.” — Paul (YouTube viewer) of youtube.com/davedgren
• Over the past 2 decades, my passion for telling the world’s greatest story has taken me to churches, schools, and camps, led me to write seven books, and feature in two video series (“God’s Storytellers” series for Children and a training workshop “STORY=POWER”). I’m originally from the USA. Don’t hold that against me, I married an Aussie girl! We have three superb children: Cyrus, Michael and Rachael. You can read more of my writing and learn about my books and storytelling on my blog.
Sample session titles and descriptions:
• Week of Prayer: I Want to See Jesus
This is a five day (30 minutes each day) presentation for Primary School.
I have performed this series: Macquarie College (Wallsend, NSW) in 2012, Carmel College (Carmel, WA) in 2012. Prescott Southern Primary School (Morfatvale, SA) in 2013 and Gilson College (Mernda Campus; Mernda, Vic) in 2013.
The week unpacks Micah 6:8 – focusing on the way we should show Mercy, Justice and Humility to others. Each day I tell a story about a dream in which I went to Heaven and met someone who teaches me.
Look forward to hearing from you soon!
