EDC-2021-UNDATED

Digital is here to stay and it changes everything.
Because online is the NEW mission field.

During the global pandemic, churches moved their services and activities online.

For many, this is a new adventure in exploring what live streaming looks like and how it can be utilised to build community and strengthen relationships.

But this new adventure into the digital world is just the start!

We are all connected online with phones, laptops, tablets, watches and smart televisions shaping our lives and relationships with each other.

And if people are there, the church should be too with the really good news of Jesus. The message never changes, but the methods and tools must adapt to the culture we live in.

Whether you are just starting out online or maybe you are further ahead in using digital; watch the Elim Digital Conference online and you will find learning lessons to implement in your own church.

Navigate how you and your church can effectively communicate and connect with people online in the digital age of the 2020s. 

Sign up to our Elim Digital and Tech Facebook groups to get support and ask questions from those actively involved in digital church communications and church production.

The Elim Digital Facebook Group can assist those who produce digital church communications from social media, web & email communications, video editing to web conferencing, graphical design to video production.
