Hybrid Ministry Bootcamp


All sessions will meet via Zoom and be recorded and available for reference

  • Monday: What is your ministry?
    Let's talk about who you want to reach with digital ministry, and how. Do you want your own parishioners to see their familiar building and people online? Or do you want a snippet of your sermon delivered far and wide?
    Choose in-person and digital tools based on what your ministry is and who you want to reach.
  • Tuesday: In-person, Digital, a little of both
    You can have some ministry that's fully in-person and some fully online. Or you can have a little of each! Find out what's best for you.
    Beyond live streaming worship, how to support in-person with digital, and vice versa.
  • Wednesday: Digital IS Ministry
    Don't call the 'tech guy'! It's not just about getting someone else to set up a new AV system, or design a new website.
    Learning new skills is part of sharing more Good News.

  • Thursday: Email and smartphones
    The best tech tools are the ones you already use and feel comfortable with! Find the easiest, cheapest, least challenging ways to engage in hybrid ministry

  • Friday: Zoom and Facebook
    We're tired of them! Some people won't use them. But they're still the most popular, least expensive ways to connect virtually. Learn some new features to make hybrid ministry a regular part of your evangelism and formation.

Fr. Cathie led online workshops for 50 of our parishes. Rather than just putting a camera in the center aisle to stream worship, she encouraged us to think about translating our worship to take advantage of the strengths of online technology.

Everything she talks about is practical, inexpensive, and encouraging, and her own upbeat personality makes the experience fun.

As I told her afterward, it was "better than I knew to hope for." Strongly recommended. 

The Rev. Brad Purdom, Canon for Congregations, The Episcopal Diocese of Ohio


Very supportive, engaging and thoughtful. I appreciated her kindness to students and passion for sharing the love of Christ as well as tools of digital ministry.
