Ignite the Church Conference - Hybrid Community: Virtual and In-Person
Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM

Add to my calendar

Most congregations were thrust into unknown territory 8 months ago when worship went virtual / online instead of in person. Church renewal leaders maintain that vital congregations must continue their online presence going forward and offer a hybrid blend of community (phygital) that is both physical and digital. This is not a replacement of community, but rather the birth of a legitimate new kind of community. The presenters recruited for this important webinar bring a wealth of experience and perspective. Expect a lively Q & A conversation as we engage the merits of this new reality.
