COVID-19 has led countless churches to do digital ministry for the first time.

But knowing how to livestream a service is just the beginning.

Now we need to make sure we understand the culture of the digital age—and how to reach people who are more and more connected. This four-part webinar series will help you build on what you’ve already learned during this time of physical distancing so that you can evolve your ministry practices for a world that lives online.

What You’ll Learn

  • Skills to help you reflect theologically on discoveries made about being church online during COVID-19

  • What a “tech-shaped culture” means and how digital technology is changing the way we know, learn, and believe

  • How to create experiments, practices, lessons, and curriculum to reach the Christian learner of the digital age

  • Strategies to evaluate the feasability of adopting congregational leadership models that reflect digital natives’ values and expectations

  • How to align Christian worship with tech-shaped culture’s new forms of connection

  • Ways to evolve your outreach efforts to engage the whole person both online and offline

    • Participate in 4 one-hour webcast sessions

      Join Ryan live as he introduces you to the practices, tools, and resources that will help you engage fruitfully with the challenge of leading Christian communities in a tech-shaped culture. Can’t make it on a given day? Catch up with on-demand replays.

    • Experiment in your context

      During the course, experiment with different practices–then share your learnings and questions for feedback.

    • Make meaningful connections with leaders like you

      You’re not alone. Ministering in a digital age can be isolating. Find like-minded leaders who can provide support and community. There’s even a way to discover other leaders in your geographical area for in-person meetups and fellowship!
