Guidelines for Churches and GroupsOverall GoalsOverall, LICC is trying to resource the church, its leaders and those who train them for effective whole-life mission. Obviously, equipping andenvisioning the people of God to be effective in their workplace and envisioning and equipping the communities of Christ to support themthere are vital components of that.The speakers on the attached list are all people who are all seeking actively to live proactively as disciples in and through their work. They have differentlevels of experience of speaking and have different areas of specialisation but they are committed to resourcing the church in the world. None of them seethe workplace as the only place where ministry can be conducted and all of them see the communities of God’s people as critical to the training and supportof lay people – wherever their ministry is.They are on the side of pastors.Inviting SpeakersNaturally you can choose to invite whoever you like and you do not need to tell us when you have. However, if you do, we can publicise the event throughWorkwise, our website and our e-mail tags – naturally, you may not want this because it may be a private event but the demand for work events is quite highthese days and there may be people in your area who would appreciate knowing about it.Fees & ExpensesYou should expect to pay a fee and all expenses – travel, photocopying (if you don’t do it for them) etc. The fee is negotiable – the speakers will not makethe decision solely based on the fee but for some this is one of the ways they make a living. Furthermore, nevertheless there is a considerable amount ofwork and time involved and for – at least a day’s equivalent even for a talk that may have essentially been given before – travel, briefing, new handouts,customising material, delivery, etc. A guideline would be between £100 and £150 for an evening, £200 - £300 for a whole Saturday and £300 to £500 for awhole weekend. That said, you may feel you cannot afford that or that you can be more generous, or that you can guarantee a lower figure but would take anoffering at the end of the evening.Promotion of Materials and LICCThe speakers will not use the opportunity to spend a lot of time promoting LICC but they will usually mention LICC and encourage people to fill in the redcontact cards that we like to be given to everyone who attends as a way to get some free materials – Word for the Week, Connecting with Culture – and findout about other relevant resources.Some will bring examples of books and videos that are relevant and make a resource list available but on the whole if you want large supplies of books thenit’s best to agree what they might be and order form a local Christian bookshop.
