With church buildings, school campuses, and workplaces empty and people confined to their homes, ministries have to find news ways to do the work to which God has called them. Many aren’t sure how to get started in doing ministry from a distance, so Indigitous is hosting a webinar series this week to help.
The Indigitous “Ministry from a Distance” webinar is happening this week at five different times, tailored to five different regions, beginning with March 25 at 8:00pm Singapore time and ending on March 27 at 8:00pm Panama City time. In each of the five regional webinars, local Christian ministry leaders will share strategies and practical tips for doing ministry at a time when you can’t meet face to face. Those who attend will learn how to reach people with the Gospel online, how to disciple people online, and how to do church online.
In order for the webinars to be indigenous in nature, each will have different content and different panelists that are relevant for that local context, while all 5 webinars will focus on the same major themes.
- How do we reach people online? (Discovering and meeting needs, sharing the hope of the Gospel)
- How do we disciple people online? (Encourage, train, resource, mobilize your community)
- How do we do church online? (Learning, connecting and engaging through digital platforms)
Some of the topics that will be covered include The Connected Church author Natchi Lazarus speaking during the Asia webinar about the opportunities for the church to make an impact online during the pandemic, Lynn McNeil of Agape Italy speaking at the Europe webinar about using Instagram to bring hope at the epicenter of the global pandemic, and Dorrie Manu of Power to Change speaking at the North American webinar about making a difference as an online mentor.
Indigitous is partnering with Cru, Power to Change, Life.Church, CV, FaithTech, Jesus.net, OneHope, Bible Project, GodTools, EveryStudent.com, Issues I Face, and .BIBLE for the “Ministry from a Distance” webinar.
