Multi-Platform Worship
Strategy & Design Sessions

Over the next two weeks, we will have multiple opportunities to meet on Zoom to talk multi-platform strategies. 

During these sessions, we'll discuss multi-platform "hybrid" worship models and explore ways to enhance your worship design for live onsite, live online, and asynchronous audiences.   There are presently four sessions scheduled.   Each is an opportunity to work on worship strategy and design together.  Sessions will combine presentation, discussion, and time to work on your worship service design.             

Participants:  Worship team members.  Anyone working on worship design.

Social media and digital culture have changed how people explore, connect, and engaged with congregations.  Understanding these changes and how to adapt our ministry strategy accordingly is essential as we work to regather our congregations this Fall.  During our time together we'll cover key concepts, strategies, and frameworks to help your congregation thrive in today's increasingly digitally oriented world.   This includes how we can engage existing members, friends, and visitors  in the life of your congregation.

This event is designed to take leaders from wherever they are in terms of understanding social media and digital culture to a deep understanding of how our congregations need to engage in today's digital world.  NO tech skills are required.
