from the congregational vitality team – becoming a hybrid church

How can we be more effective in ministry when many people aren’t even coming into the building? Once we’re back in person, do we just forget the online piece? 

“Becoming a Hybrid Church” by Dave Daubert and Richard E. T. Jorgensen Jr. was written for leaders in congregations at this moment, when we are ministering to both in-person and online gatherings. This concise, easy to read book gives an overview of what this type of hybrid church looks like. As we work to have communities that are both online and in-person, Daubert and Jorgensen help us ponder questions and ideas about social media, pastoral care, worship, and more. 

Since this book is so accessible, it is great for beginning the conversation of enhancing hybrid ministry – particularly the online aspect. It can be read together with a Congregation’s Council – or if you’re lucky enough to have a Digital Ministry Team, get them a few copies! It will help reframe the ways we view online ministry and lead to answers, more questions, and experiments to the glory of God. 

For further conversation and sharing of ideas, the Congregational Vitality Network will host a four-part online discussion of “Becoming a Hybrid Church.” Look for the dates and times soon!
