Using Hybrid Ministry to Re-Imagine Your Ministry

Also available as Online ICC

Rev. Dave Daubert

The church was thrust into new territory when the pandemic pressed us out of church sanctuaries and classrooms and onto the internet. Yet the digital world proved to be not only a way to wait out the pandemic, but also a new place to explore and do new ministry and in new ways. Many have found that the tools that were introduced and the skills that were learned during this time offered new opportunities for mission and ministry.  More >

Using Hybrid Ministry to Re-Imagine Your Ministry

by Rev. Dave Daubert     

The church was thrust into new territory when the pandemic pressed us out of church sanctuaries and classrooms and onto the internet. Yet the digital world proved to be not only a way to wait out the pandemic, but also a new place to explore and do new ministry and in new ways. Many have found that the tools that were introduced and the skills that were learned during this time offered new opportunities for mission and ministry. The return to buildings as the pandemic waned is not a return to the old normal, but a opportunity to move forward and to create and design a new normal – one with both on-site and in person ministry as well as online ministry in the digital world (you don’t have to be wealthy to do some really great stuff!).

In this workshop we will explore the interactions between on-the-ground and online ministry. How do leaders navigate the decisions that impact how to lead worship, develop groups, cultivate community and relationships that are the heart of good ministry? In these sessions we will explore the things that are best done in person, see where online work offers new and exciting possibilities, and look at the interactions needed to maintain and connect ministry in both a physical and digital space (hybrid ministry). We’ll also check out the technology options for a range of budgets so you can get what you need to do the best work you can within the financial realities in your setting.
