Basic On-Line Example

Key to churches recovering and growing through the COVID-19 Pandemic will require communicating to your congregation, innovation, and technology. The main goal for this website is to encourage a new way of thinking about church.

There are some great FREE technology resources and Bible teaching Study/Discipleship material available on the internet that you can use to coordinate your “in-person” and “on-line” presence.

I want to encourage you to think outside the box on how to leverage all of the technology and teaching/preaching material toward being and ‘adapter” and exiting the Pandemic stronger than when you entered it.

Below are two articles that might trigger some ideas for your church.

Church Example of using technology

As we have mentioned elsewhere on this website an increase in communicating (outreach) with members and community is critical. This communication should be regular and consistent. To free up time for theses activities using packaged “off-the-shelf” materal and focusing all ministries on a single message could be very effective.

Below is a list with a brief description and a link to some of these type resources.

The Bible Project is a nonprofit animation studio that produces videos and other resources to make the story of the Bible accessible online to everyone, everywhere. Our FREE example uses material from this site. As a pastor I discovered that most people are “visual learners”. Our example relies on this concept.

Allthough our “Basic On-line Example” is based on the Bible Project videos, you could use FREE materal from the following websites to construct yout own courses.

Our Basic “on-line” example is intended to get your creative juices flowing and to encourage you to get on-line quickly by shifting your time from focusing on personal preparation to connecting with and encouraging others. Most small churches do not have the resources to develop the quality of material that is available for free, therfore take advantage of it.

Christianity Explored is a way of sharing the best news ever heard, and gives people space and time to think about the big questions of life. Over 7 sessions in Mark’s Gospel, find out more about the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ.
