A year ago, we were all thrown into the deep end as ministry and congregational life moved online. Now we are heading back towards the familiar shore as we plan and begin to gather in person. But what do we do with the new connections we've made online? How do we hold new online and familiar in-person ministries together in one congregation?
In this workshop, you will explore a framework for what it means to be a hybrid congregation. You'll learn about the infrastructure necessary to make it happen, as well as tips and best practices you can use now and in the future. This live online workshop is led by Jim Keat, associate minister of digital strategy and online engagement at The Riverside Church in New York City.
