This global pandemic forced churches to explore digital ministry in new ways. Most of us have learned how to utilize Facebook or Youtube in our churches but what about using other platforms as a way to meet and invite people into the life of the church? This training is an opportunity to hear from some of the leading innovators in their fields which range from Twitch and Tiktok to Mighty Networks and Marco Polo. These leaders will share their stories and offer practical how-tos so you can dive into these new ministry mission fields in your own context. If you are clergy or laity, young or old, digital native or digital immigrant, you will learn something during our day together!
