If you and your church isn’t considering how to ministry digitally, you’re missing out. Easy for me to say, I work in digital marketing full-time. How is a lead pastor or a church staff, that is likely made mostly of volunteers, to cater to the World Wide Web? Maybe this will help!
Digital Ministry Conference 2015
While the calibre of information discussed may not be for the digital “layperson,” the Digital Ministry Conference has one purpose in mind: The Digital Ministry Conference is designed to empower individuals with the vision, knowledge, and relationships necessary to be thoughtful stewards of digital technologies for the cause of Christ.
The event is marinated in breakout sessions and well-recognized keynote speakers, everyone from Brian Russell (of YouVersion) and Kyle Kutter (of LifeChurch.TV) to local and international digital ministry gurus. Learn more about the massive lineup of speakers here.
Probably the coolest part of this conference is that they have streamlined it for different folks. Here are the three different focal points you can travel while you’re there:
Sessions in the Ministry track are designed to explore the complex issues surrounding the practice of our faith and the use of digital technologies. Speakers will address issues such as: How does the use of these technologies deepen our faith? How does it help us love our neighbor?
Sessions in the Strategy track provide insight into how organizations can leverage Internet and social media tools to make their organizations more successful. Speakers in this track will address practical issues such as how to gain more social media followers and increase return on investment.
Sessions in the Learning track will explore the topic of using technology for academic and community-building purposes. Attendees should expect to learn from experts in the field on how to more effectively use social media and mobile technologies to deliver educational value and deepen relationships with students.
Will you be there? I hope so!
