How to Be a Hybrid Church: 3-Part Workshop Series (Series B*)

Wednesdays, May 12, 19 & 26  |  2:00 p.m. (EDT) 

 

Led by Christen Kinard of Digital Congregations, with support from CBF of North Carolina and CBF of South Carolina. $50 registration fee.  This workshop is full.

The pandemic and resultant quarantine taught churches and their congregations that we can worship, learn, pray, and gather online. We learned how to stream. Zoom, edit, post; the learning curve was steep.  Today, churches are faced with a new challenge as they consider how to engage a split congregation-at home and online. This moment demands thoughtfulness, intentionality, and collaboration. This course is designed to help you discern what it means for your church to become a “hybrid” church and how to build the bridge between what you’re doing now and what you will do in the future.

 

WEDNESDAY, MAY 12
PART ONE: Applying Relational Tools to an Invitational Model
19% of practicing Christians in the United States have not attended a single in-person or online service during the pandemic. And only 51% have attended weekly, down from 79% prior to March 2020. This is largely due to a foundational misunderstanding among churches of the tools that make digital ministry possible. In this 90-minute session, discover how churches have tried to apply relational tools to an invitational model and how to avoid this in the future.

 

WEDNESDAY, MAY 19
PART TWO: How to Honor Both Congregations Equally
Becoming a hybrid church is about more than the addition or maintenance of a virtual service. If the church does not adjust the in-person experience to indicate to the at­ home congregation that it is as important as those in the pews, the result will be greater isolation and feelings of exclusion. In this 90-minute session, learn how to offer parity between the online and offline experience of church.

 

WEDNESDAY, MAY 26
PART THREE: The Essential Tools of a Hybrid Church
In this 90-minute session, we will review the technological and digital tools and resources that will help you engage your entire congregation and carry out your ministry. Areas addressed will include worship, small groups, prayer, missions, and communication.

 

*This is “Series B.”  It is identical to “Series A.”  Due to the high level of interest, two separate workshop series were created.

Because the event is full, registration is closed.

Our theme for this year is “Restore Life” using Nehemiah 8:10 as our theme verse to guide our weekend:  “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Conflict Transformation

March 1–31

In this five-week study participants will explore a workable approach to conflict via the framework of conflict transformation, as opposed to “conflict resolution.” Conflict Transformation is an approach with a deep reach, offering both solutions and possibilities for social change. It aids leaders deal with immediate crises, but also address long-term change.

Using the breakthrough work of John Paul Lederach, an internationally recognized pioneer in the field of conflict transformation, participants will apply a specific framework to the task of conflict transformation. Lederach is recognized for his work on conflict transformation at multiple levels: person-to-person, factions within communities, to warring nations. His conflict transformation approach is about not simply “How do we end something not desired?” but “How do we end something destructive and build something desired?”

Instructor: Dr. Mindy McGarrah Sharp, Associate Professor of Practical Theology and Pastoral Care at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, GA.

Schedule:  This is an asynchronous course; participants will not be required to log on at specific times.

This course is provided by Lifelong Learning at Columbia Theological Seminary, Decatur, GA
