Ministry Panel #2 - Lessons of a Lockdown
Astor Ballroom

As Christianity faces unprecedented challenges and a constantly decreasing population, how technology is applied to the parish life should take a holistic approach. During the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020 and the ensuing pandemic, parishes have come up creative and tech-based ideas as to how to continue ministry, raise funds, and keep community. Expanding past the idea of just having a parish Facebook page, the conversation will look at some of the ideas that are currently being used in parishes throughout the country and discuss a unified approach of applying technology to the life of the church in the 21st century.
