Church Media Teams & Volunteers
We are living in a digital age. There are so many tools to help your church communicate with your community. That is why we are bringing together some of the top minds in church production together including Jake Gosselin, Dave Dolphin, Will Dogget, and Tom Sinclair. With Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch all offering live streaming… the social communication implications are wide-reaching. If you’re interested in spreading the message of god with modern online tools… This is the event for you.
Two words: Interactivity & Engagement. Live streaming is interactive, and it’s your opportunity to engage with online audiences and create a lasting impression that could one day lead to the front doors of your church. Live streaming is quite literally changing the way online services are being delivered. Uncovering the power of live streaming can connect your church with members who are on vacation, shut-ins who cannot physically make it, and new generations of younger folk. At the Worship Summit Live, you will gain strategies from top industry leaders. Virtual and in-person attendees can participate in live demonstrations, and join break-out sessions and get in-depth information from a host of expert panelists.
Creative Minds Come Alive
Live streaming is perhaps the latest new trend in online communications. Learning how to harness these capabilities can streamline your church’s community outreach possibilities. Maybe your churches Pastor wants to start his own live show. Perhaps you have an online community ready to help share your message. The power of live streaming on social media can reach into places you can only imagine.
Church Production Crews & Volunteers
Live video production isn’t easy. That’s the truth. You have to create a plan, implement it, and produce engaging content that holds your audience’s attention. This summit will prepare your team with forward-thinking plans of action that can lead the way.
You can accelerate your church’s interaction with online audiences and create lasting connections with your church’s message with viewers. These interactions help build your community both online and in church.
