    We have emerged from a season where after initial online worship many churches have gone back to the pre-pandemic approach: treating the home audience as observers and no longer giving them attention. OR, after living in an online world for 9+ months, treating the people in the room like a studio audience for the people watching at home.

    This webinar will offer Tips, Strategies, and Equipping to help the local church create a worship ministry where both in-person and online worshiping communities feel equally included and cared for.
