People often print this page and read portions of it before they introduce me. Let me suggest what I think it is a better way. Whatever you can say about me personally is far better than, "Josh has a MDiv from SWBTS. . ." In other words, you might consider an introduction that goes something like the following:
- Several years ago I picked up a book called, You Can Double Your Class in Two Years or Less. . .
- I was at Ridgecrest last summer and I kept hearing the name, "Josh Hunt". . .
- I heard Josh speak 3 years ago in Mississippi. . .
In short, tell the story of how you heard of me; it is normally a better introduction than what is below. This is more to be adapted for printed media.
