MAI Launches Webinars for Global Christian Publishers

MAI is expanding its global publisher training with the launch of free monthly webinars. “While MAI considers on-site face-to-face training as the most effective way to help grow words of life in the hearts and soil of readers worldwide, we also see webinars as a relatively inexpensive tool to broaden and multiply our reach,” said Ramon Rocha, Director of Publisher Development.

The interactive sessions will include polls, surveys and time for questions. Sessions will be recorded for on-demand access after the live webcast.
