Designed with your church in mind, this session is for churches of all sizes and resources.

Topics Include:

People & Purpose: Who are you talking to and what do you want them to do?

Don’t Sweat It: How to have a vibrant digital presence without working 24/7

The Work of the People: How Lay Leaders can create interactive liturgies and other community building experiences.

From Consumer to Community: How to incorporate digital tools for discipleship, small groups, outreach and more.
