Epic Telling 2024
What will we experience together?
A high point of any Festival of Biblical Telling is the performance of the "Epic Telling.” This is an energizing team-telling that gives us a chance to experience a large portion of scripture together, as told by a variety of tellers. It is such a gripping event that it has come to be known as Epic.
How do I take part in the telling?
Check the chart to decide which part you would like to learn and tell by heart.
Tap the button above the chart to fill out and submit your top three choices. We’ll let you know your assigned part within 48 hours.
Learn your part by heart and video-record yourself telling it. Video Guidelines will be available.
The actual performance of the Epic will be a broadcast of our fully edited Epic Telling video. Invite your friends and family!
How do I prepare?
Learn the passage by heart and be ready to tell it on video without prompts or reading the page.
As a general rule when learning the passage by-heart, aim for about 95% story content accuracy and 75% word accuracy. It’s not a competition to get all the words perfect!
You can find many inspiring examples of scripture telling in the Biblical Storytelling Library.

Tellers who have signed up here to learn a small portion of scripture by heart come together to tell their part in sequence, tag-team style.
This year we will team-tell portions of the book of Deuteronomy - and record our tellings from our own locales.
