Course Dates: Use button below to hear about new dates!
This is a five-day beginners overview of creating a digital/online ministry, such as a YouTube Bible Study, a text message prayer chain, a Google+ video discussion group, a website blog, etc.
Participants should come into the workshop prepared with an idea for a ministry that they would like to create. The workshop will support that process by focusing on what media will work best for your idea, how to show professional excellence, how to keep your ministry secure, and what to expect financially. There will be daily reading and discussion questions as well as recommendations for further research – plan to spend at least one hour a day in reading and discussion plus whatever research time you chose to invest in your idea. To receive a completion certificate, participants will need to post and respond to other participants daily.
This course is eligible for 0.5 CEU.
