Online worship is transforming the church. What began as a panic-driven, improvised response to building closures is now a full-fledged movement. As seeker-sensitive worship transformed our churches in the 1990s, online worship is revolutionizing ministry today. Growing your skills as a content creator is no longer optional: it is where the Spirit is leading you!

This course is taught by Rev. Steven D. Martin, founder of the Lakelands Institute. Steve has served as a youth minister, associate pastor, pastor of a two-point circuit, and lead pastor in a community church. As a filmmaker and national communicator, Steve has relentlessly pursued a vision in which faith and community are built together through visual storytelling and online engagement.
