First Impressions: Connecting and Communicating in a Digital Age

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

$35 – $50

Once upon a time, one’s first impressions of a church or ministry were formed upon driving by a building or walking in a door. Now, digital communication forms most of our understanding of an organization before we ever approach a physical structure. If someone was trying to learn about your church or ministry, would they be able to sense who you are by what they see, read, or hear?

First Impressions: Connecting and Communicating in the Digital Age” is a practical, results-focused webinar that aims to help you create ways of forming first impressions, as well as methods to identify and connect with your community, all in the online world.

This School for Ministry Intensive will explore how digital platforms and social media shape human interactions, emphasizing the importance of factors like the visuals, tone, and language. It encourages you to reflect on your organization’s digital presence with the aim of putting together a plan to build and maintain relationships. What will online visitors experience? Will they notice a clear, consistent, and helpful message? Will their interaction give them a positive First Impression?
