Walking Together 2017The First 3 Steps to Taking Your Church Online
At Walking Together, we began a conversation that could make a big difference in ministry in your faith community going forward. We unpacked 3 key first steps to great digital engagement, explored 4 movement in the way we think digitally in the Church, and started on an 8 part framework for digital engagement. The next step is to bring it to life. We’ve learned that moving forward in meaningful ways takes a partner to guide the process, bring fresh eyes and accountability, and offer resources and best practices.
We invite you to join your fellow adaptive faith formation leaders and the Vibrant Faith team as we spend three days living in to the how-to’s of generating and sustaining a vibrant faith in Jesus Christ for today’s world. We believe effective, transformational ministry will take focused work in three key arenas in the years ahead: Adaptive Leadership, Transforming Relationships, and Digital Engagement. We’ll take one day to focus on each of these areas in a gathering unlike other conferences you’ve attended. You can expect good conversation, interactive learning, and practical application. Join us for the SUMMIT Launch gathering April 25-27 in Bloomington, MN and then consider bringing a SUMMIT to your local area.

Would you and/or someone from your team join a group like that?
