Overwhelmed by all the additional burdens placed on you during the COVID-19 pandemic?
In a 60-minute online workshop, learn how to lead effective worship that connects your people to God and each other. Use tools you already have - and time you already spend - to get great results.
Expense: Audio/Visual companies have swooped in, seeing the push toward livestreaming worship services as the opportunity of a lifetime. Churches, under pressure to respond to needs created by the pandemic, are ready to spend thousands of dollars on cameras, switchers, mixers, and a host of monthly subscriptions that do not provide the experience churchgoers are hoping for.
Time: Let's face it, in small churches most of the burdens of leadership fall on the pastors, who are now under unprecedented stress. Learning and managing new technology places unfair burdens on clergy already stretched to the breaking point.
Wouldn't it be great to discover a way to host engaging online worship that doesn't break the bank? By realizing one simple truth - that online worship takes place on a mobile device, not a church sanctuary - learning to optimize tools you already have will save your congregation from five-figure expenditures. Yes, it's much easier than you imagine.
The last thing we need is one more weekly obligation. So why not use sermon prep time to lead people in a spiritual experience that builds community and prepares you for Sunday services? Yes, you'll see how easy it is.
