Engaging the Community for Social Transformation - Session 4
Our monthly webinar series, “Engaging the Community for Social Transformation,” continues on Thursday, September 23, with a session focused on engaging online communities. Over the course of the last year and half or so, connecting online with others has become vitally important; and the need for this connection will continue, even as in-person gatherings begin. While some people long to gather as they did before the pandemic, others prefer an online community. Therefore, when churches are able to go back to in-person gathering, online community will remain a vitally important point of engagement. We have much to learn still and may have many questions about what it looks like to engage online.
Our webinar guest Joe Webb, a deacon in the West Virginia Annual Conference, has been at work creating and engaging online communities as a church planter through New Wineskins, an online faith community, and through his podcast, Accidental Tomatoes: Finding Faith Beyond the Fences. This work creates a safe space where all are included, thoughtful conversations that offer people the opportunity to engage with one another, and online connection as a faith community.
Joe comes to us to share his insight and wisdom about online engagement and to offer us some best practices that come from facing challenges and doing the work of online community building.
Join us as we learn together what it means to engage our communities, especially when our communities are online.
The webinar series is offered monthly through the end of the year at 11 a.m. Central Time. Dates are Sept. 23, Oct. 28, Nov. 18, and Dec. 16.
