Resurrection Online at Leadership Institute 2010 #li2010

I am excited about the Leadership Institute 2010, October 7 and 8 in Leawood, KS. I am going to be presenting a workshop on social media strategy and partnering with Clif Guy, Director of IT to lead a pre-institute about online ministry. Here are the descriptions of the workshops that I will be leading. Will you join me in these sessions? More online at

Workshop, Session 2 – Social Media Strategy 101

Should the pastor of a church have a blog? Why would my church want to use Twitter or Facebook? In this session, we will consider the purpose of social media and how it might be leveraged to build community and make ministry happen in your local church.

Pre-Institute, Afternoon Session – From the Church Website to Online Ministry

The Internet now enables more ways of reaching, engaging, and connecting people than ever before.  Led by the pastor of Resurrection Online and Resurrection’s IT Director, this pre-Institute workshop will cover the basics of church websites; then it will move on to strategies for using streaming video and social media to advance all aspects of your church’s ministry.
