What we're about
Join Christian Toastmasters and improve your public speaking and leadership skills in a friendly and supportive environment! Our club is located in the beautiful old Strathcona area, just South of Whyte Ave and one block west of Calgary Trail. We meet Tuesdays at 7:30 pm (see summer meeting times just below). The address is 10511 79 Ave Edmonton (Church Lower Level). Parking is always free!
* Summer meeting times for 2018 *
Our last regular weekly meeting of the 2017–2018 year will be on June 26th. Summer meetings will be held at the regular time and location on July 10th & 24th, and on August 7th & 14th. Our first regular weekly meeting of the fall will be on September 11th.
We are a club member of Toastmasters International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping men and women learn the arts of speaking, listening and thinking – vital skills that enhance one’s communications skills and leadership potential.
As the only Christian-themed Toastmasters club in the Edmonton area, Christian Toastmasters seeks to be a community where followers of Christ can improve their public speaking and leadership skills in a mutually supportive environment. Our meetings typically begin and end with a prayer, and members are free to speak about their faith. Whether members will use their improved speaking and leadership skills as they help build up the kingdom of God, or in social or work situations in their everyday lives, Christian Toastmasters is a place where we hope followers of Jesus can unlock and develop their gifts and potential.
Attend one of our meetings as a guest!
If you like what you see and hear, we will help you on your journey to realizing your communication potential. After signing up, you will be given the opportunity to present your first prepared speech within the first few weeks after joining, but you will have opportunity to speak at every meeting. You will join the Toastmasters Pathways learning program, which allows you to choose a learning and development path that is right for you—whether that is Presentation Mastery, Team Collaboration, Motivational Strategies, or another of several possible paths. Each member works at their own pace. At any time, there will be a mentor available to you, if you so desire.
