We can teach you how to engage with your congregation online, reach out to seekers, and share God’s love with the latest digital tools. While the training courses offered here generally take 2-3 hours to complete, the application and implementation of the course content and your new skills may require more time.

Also, check out our learning bundles which offer three unique courses focused on a central theme of communication to help you chart a plan to meet your congregation’s communication needs. Our program also offer micro-trainings, a learning method designed to deliver effective content in a time frame of 20-30 minutes. These "burst of knowledge" or micro-trainings will equip you with communication practices that you can start applying to your congregation today.
