COVID-19 has accelerated overdue conversations in the local church about how the digital space can be better leveraged to sustain, if not accelerate, the ministry and mission of your church. In this breakout we'll dive deeply into what digital ministry looks like in some practical and tactical ways. From theology and culture to ministry strategy and organizational structure, we will provide questions and tactics to help you better navigate the emerging era of church ministry.
