For churches and conferences:
“Reposition Yourself for God’s Blessings”
Sometimes the smallest changes can make the biggest differences. How does God take someone with traumatic brain injury, emotional challenges and physical limitations and call him to a ministry where he speaks to thousands everyday? Danny shares three lessons he learned from his survival and recovery experience that has enlarged his capacity to receive God’s blessings and expand the growth of others.
“Why Should I Be Involved in Missions?”
Few Christ-followers are engaged in missions. Beyond the surface, someone asks, “Why should I get involved?” Danny explains what happened to him in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks at the World Trade Center. Discover how an incident in New York impacted a man in Hawaii to face his greatest fears. Be inspired by hearing what happened 10 years later. He uncovers biblical reasons that have potential to create a swell of missions interest and activity.
“Increase Your Passion to Reach People”
According to Barna Research, the majority of people in Christian churches today do not participate in evangelism. Further, most don’t even believe it is their responsibility. More than a pre-packaged program or the traditional “Invite a Friend Sunday” an overhaul is needed in the hearts, minds and responsbilities of 21st century American believers. Danny’s captivating message compels listeners to take action, immediately.
*Danny Yamashiro Ministries offers a series of follow-up evangelism seminars to equip Christians with principles and resources to practically and effectively share their faith
Seminars for churches and conferences
“Key’s To Effective Evangelism” [3 hrs]
Danny addresses three of the greatest fears people have when it comes to evangelism. Rejection, Failure and Inadequacy. He introduces his Evangelism Continuum (as seen in his book Successful Evangelism 100% of the Time) and teaches biblical principles that liberate Christians from paralyzing myths about evangelism. Attendees leave excited, committed and most important, believe that, yes, they too can do evangelism.
“Mastering Personal Evangelism” [3 hrs]
Taking off from the foundation of the “Keys To Effective Evangelism” seminar, role play is introduced. Danny expands by presenting six “every day” scenarios that can take place in an evangelism encounter. Biblical examples are explained and insights delivered before six rounds of role play and evaluation are set in motion. Fun, interactive, inspiring and practical. Danny and his team conduct periods of question and answer.
“Evangelism in the Business Community” [2 hrs]
Opportunities for evangelism abound in business environments. What are we to do? Danny provides biblical guidelines that reframe work responsibilities as a place of destiny where divine encounters are set-up by God.
For colleges/universities and schools:
“Thank God I’m Alive”
Young people question their reason for existence. Many on the verge of despair and desperation are just one step away from experiencing purpose, fulfillment and hope. Danny describes the first time he removed the bandages from his torn scalp. “I saw the zig-zag pattern of stitches, like a railroad track criss-crossing on my head.” His mother witnessed the dramatic event with tears streaming down her cheeks. She asked him a question. His response became a turning point in his life.
“Extremes: How Far Are You Willing To Go?”
In each young person, there is untapped capacity for commitment. With proper leadership and support, many are willing to do, virtually, anything and go anywhere. If only they had a cause to believe in and live for. Danny shares how facing death caused something to “click” in him that has given him a courage, boldness and devotion to Christ he once lacked. He explains in vivid descriptions how each listener can experience a moment that could change the course of their lives forever.
“What’s Better, Polished or Broken?”
In a society where outward appearance takes center stage, the inner qualities of a person are rarely noticed. Hidden in the heart of every young man and woman, are secrets. Pain, fear, regret and shame. Danny describes what it was like to be the captain of the varsity football team and prom king only to be physically disfigured and mentally damaged because of a decision he made. He explains how facing his brokenness was the start of a new beginning. What’s better, polished or broken? The answer will surprise you.
For corporate gatherings:
“Lessons I’m Learning: Severe Set-backs and Glorious Comebacks”
After experiencing severe physical, emotional and mental damage as an 18 year old, Danny was plagued with social awkwardness that left him isolated. Few who knew him than would believe he’d become an author, speaker, entrepreneur, world traveler, leader and minister. He has experienced the journey of a “comeback” in life, or, as he describes, “Many comebacks as part of the journey.” Danny shares his story plus inspirational examples from notable people who have overcome tragedy and hoplessness and converted disappointment to God’s appointment. This presentation will elevate, inspire, motivate and re-energize listeners to new levels of productivity and health.
For coffee hours:
“Let Me Share My Heart” (Open dialogue)
Danny offers a very personal and close-up time of interaction and sharing. Danny shares his miraculous story of God’s grace and how he has witnessed the way the Lord takes broken people in painful situations and restores them to health. He is open to talk about his ministry, marriage, family, depression, etc. – whatever will help minister God’s hope and love to those who attend. This may be a good opportunitiy to bring a friend or family member who is seeking to learn more about Christ and how he relates to us, today.
