Off-Display Ministry Concepts for Fall
All over the community, professionals have done an incredible job adapting to our new realities in the light of the COVID19 pandemic. Many of us have acquired technological skills that we never knew we would need. There are many good and effective ways to build trust in digital spaces, but since so much of our daily lives go online from work to school to socializing, many people are looking for ideas for off-screen belief building.
In this webinar, the panelists present concrete ideas for the service that do not require a screen. Panelists include Samantha Clare and Imani Driskell. Sarah Bentley Allred, editor of Building Faith, will be the host.
To participate in this webinar on August 20 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (East) or to receive a recording, register here.
