On Congregational Membership, Digital Culture, and Staffing

I just had a great conversation with a ministry team about membership, digital culture, and staffing.  For these leaders — staff and membership volunteers — it was eye-opening.

I want you to have the same  experience.  I hope this 10 minute-ish video helps inspire you to update your strategy!

We need to meet people WHERE and WHEN they are making decisions about our congregations — that’s online for a huge percentage of potential visitors and new members.

We need to welcome them online.

We need to inspire, educate, and orient them online.

We need to bring a branch of the path to membership online.

How do we do this?  First, acknowledge the fact that the world, our technology, and human behavior requires a shift.  Once you do that you can seek out specific support.
