Telling the Old Story in a New Time:
Best Practices for Worshiping Online and Beyond in a Physically Distanced World
Almost overnight, we find ourselves in a new, unfamiliar world. The COVID-19 virus has changed everything about our lives, including how we worship. What is the church to do in such a time as this?
With the social distancing practices preventing our physical gatherings, how do we connect and make our message resonate with a world in chaos? Now more than ever, the church has the opportunity to lead the charge in a world looking for spiritual answers. In order to lead effectively, we have to tell the story in a new way, for a new time and with a new medium.
In the same way a book has to be consolidated and adapted for the screen in movie form, so must the worship we offer virtually. We can’t continue with a “business-as-usual” approach where Sunday morning worship is concerned.
The workshop will include:
· A primer on shifting practices from in-person to virtual
· How to offer worship beyond online (for the technologically challenged)
· Best practices for creating worship that lasts beyond the moment
· A guest readiness guide and tips for how to offer a deeper sense of community
· Technology tips (what to do when things fail)
· Copyright concerns
· Equipment options, and how to achieve a good looking (and sounding) stream
· PDF handbook filled with resource links
· Extensive Q&A
· 30 Days to re-watch the recorded stream
· Optional follow up coaching opportunities
· & More
