21st Century Tools for Ministry: Digital Media and Ministry is a workshop co-sponsored by the Virginia Synod and the Episcopal Diocese of Southwest Virginia focused on equipping leaders for ministry in the 21st Century.
Church leaders have been reinventing the best ways to communicate, teach, and preach since the earliest days of Christian community. In this workshop, we’ll explore the 21st century tools for ministry, how we can maintain healthy boundaries and genuine connection at the same time, while engaging in the work of the Jesus Movement. Ministry leaders will walk away inspired to be digital evangelists and hearing authentic ways to connect, ending the evening equipped with tools and resources.
The cost per person is $15 and dinner is included.
