Patterned after NPR’s “The Moth” podcast, this is Biola’s first StorySlam event. StorySlam I participants will tell a real-life 5-minute story, about a personal experience. In response to the 2013 Torrey Memorial Bible Conference’s “With” theme, some of Biola’s best storytellers will relay salient moments in their lives when they were especially aware of and touched by the presence of God.
