*Main Agenda:
This time is used for encouraging/mobilizing/equipping. If the stories/ideas/instruction that you have to share can be applied to/contextualized for other contexts (cultures/groups/churches/agencies, etc...) so that attendees can leave better equipped to cross cultures/mobilize others with what they have learned from you then you may be invited to share for 30  minutes and encouraged to hang around after the meeting for Q & A from the audience.

**Ministry Highlight:
This time is used for highlighting your ministry in order to raise awareness/resources. You may be invited to share for 10 minutes and encouraged to hang around after the meeting for Q & A from the audience.
