As our Presbytery aims to come alongside our church and ministry leaders navigating the urgency of digital ministry and community in such a time as this, we have convened tech deacons to be available for support to you. These individuals are not necessarily “experts,” but can be a resource for you as you set up ZOOM, facilitate social media platforms, host on-line and live-stream worship, and more. If our tech deacons do not know the answers, they will help connect you to those who may.
As our congregations and ministries lean into the sacred possibilities of digital community. We will feature weekly “TechTips” as you navigate these uncharted waters. All tips will be available here and on our social media platforms.
This week’s recommendation: Tech Deacons
On a recent webinar, it was recommended that congregations explore convening a group of leaders who are at least novice or better at all things tech and social media. These individuals can have their preferred contact information made available to the congregation so those who are less skilled in this area can have tech support readily available from their trusted community as they navigate online platforms like ZOOM, Facebook LIVE, YouTube, and other spaces for virtual gatherings and worship services. Consider launching Tech Deacons in your congregation or worshipping community. The Presbytery is in the process of convening our own- stay tuned.
