Learn More 2 Do More Project
Sponsored by Lee Clowning Ministry
☺ Presents Training & Entertaining Events
for Church Leaders and Members ☺
Training events are designed and presented by Rev. Dale Lee. Dale is a seminary
graduate and a professional clown. He is an experienced educator and entertainer.
He has over a decade of experience in entertaining clients and their friends.
In the seminars and workshops, Dale uses skills associated with a
clown, educator, storyteller, preacher, humorist, stand-up comedian,
etc. to make LM2DM Project events enjoyable.
While the audience is enjoying themselves, Dale will sneak into the presentation the educational material.
What is an LM2DM Project’s Presentation
A Learn More 2 Do More Project’s Presentation consists of two events and an
optional Consultation event with Dale Lee. A Presentation of events will be
conducted on-site for the client. The events are designed to train, encourage,
empower, and entertain church members. The seminars and workshops focus is on
teaching “how to do it” instead of the theory associated with the subject. A
Presentation of events could take about three hours to conduct during one calendar
day. Visit the “Types of Presentation Events” section (Page 4) to learn about the
available types of events.
The events are presented in an entertaining atmosphere in order for church members
to enjoy the time they invested in attending the events. When a church’s members
enjoy themselves, they will be more inclined to attend other events conducted by
The target audience for seminars and workshops are teenagers and adults. The Sermon, Keynote Speech, and Clown Style Program can be enjoyed and understood by older children, teens, and adults.
The Consultation event is an optional event that will be conducted if the time is
available, and the pastor is interested in participating in the event.
Request for customized events are welcome. A specific event and its topic can be designed to appeal to a specific target audience.
Cost of an LM2DM Project’s Presentation to a Client
The cost for a client to book an LM2DM Project Presentation is the Presentation

Presentation Fee is based on the size of a church’s Sunday School average
attendance. The typical expenses that the client will reimburse the LM2DM Project

through a blend of the styles of a preacher, clown, teacher, and stand-up comedian.
Keynote Speech ( 30 - 45 minutes ) It is an entertaining speech that is built around a theme and will include a variety of the skills associated with a clown, storyteller, humorist, stand-up comedian, etc. This event will encourage the audience while presenting the selected theme.
Clown Style Program ( 30 - 60 minutes) It is an entertaining fast paced event that is led by a human. The content will be built around a theme and will contain a variety of activities that use the skills associated with a clown.
Consultation (Up to 60 minutes) It is built around a question and answer
dialogue between Dale Lee and the people attending the Consultation. A
Consultation is normally designed for a church’s pastor. A pastor can at his
discretion invite up to four people to attend a Consultation event. The small number
of people will enable more personalized discussion. A Consultation will focus on a
specific topic and will not be a general discussion of several topics. The pastor will
determine the initial topic. No handout will be provided for a Consultation event.
Client Designed This event is unusual in that when it is selected it becomes the only event in a Presentation. The client works with Dale Lee to custom design up to three and one-half hours of activities that are based on the available types of events.

Partner Financing Concept (PFC) Can Reduce the Cost per Church
Learn More 2 Do More (LM2DM) Project provides quality training and educational
entertaining events for church leaders and members at reasonable prices. The
Partner Financing Concept (PFC) provides the ability for a small church to receive
$600.00 of events for $200.00 which is receiving two events for one third of the
normal Presentation Fee.
The Presentation Fee is based on the size of a church’s Sunday School average
attendance for the last 26 weeks. The PFC enables a church to reduce its portion of
the Presentation Fee by partnering with other churches to provide training events to
their members while being a good steward of their financial resources.
The PFC provides several partnering methods that will help reduce the cost of the
Presentation Fee to a church. The methods are:
1. Multiple Church Method. A church can partner with several churches to
sponsor a Presentation Set of events with the churches sharing the cost of the
Presentation Fee and the reimbursement expenses.
2. Consecutive Days Method. A church, when it books Presentation Sets of
events that will span multiple days, will receive a discount that will be applied to the
Presentation Fee for the second and third day. No discount is available for the
Presentation Fee for the first day. This method does not apply to the Client
Combining the PFC’s Multiple Church Method and Consecutive Days Method can make a significant reduction in the Presentation Fee for a church, but it does not in any way reduce the quality of the training events and entertaining events.
Return on Investment
What is the Return on Investment (ROI) to a church that makes training church members an important goal of its Mission Statement? The open area of a church's back door can be made smaller by a church intentionally providing training that will enable its members to grow spiritually and live an effective Christian lifestyle. Also, better trained church members will become more effective church leaders, workers in the a church's ministries, and representatives of the church and God in the church's community.
Yes, it does cost money to aggressively provide training for church members and leaders which actually is an investment in the church's members and the church's future.
The Learn More 2 Do More Project wants to provide training to your church's members. Effort has been made through the Partner Financing Concept (Page 6) to identify how small churches can economically provide training for their members. The Presentation Fee charged by the LM2DM Project has to provide an adequate ROI for the time, effort, money, etc. that are required to develop and conduct training and entertaining events .
