Leadership & Hybrid Ministry in the New Media Landscape

The Rev’d Dr. Angela Gorrell

Mondays: Jan 8, 15, 22, & Feb 5, 2024

11:00 am-1:00 pm EST

Living in a new media landscape is as daunting as it is exhausting. You may be feeling fresh out of resilience, creativity, and agility. This course will help you to lean into your expertise while attending to what matters most for ministry in a new media landscape. This course is based on my book, always on: practicing faith in a new media landscape, which draws on the research of media scholars (e.g. Jenkins, Campbell, Rheingold, Baym), religious scholars (e.g. Volf, Tanner, Smith, Bass), and educators (e.g. Palmer, Freire, Brookfield) to equip people like you to lead communities toward flourishing in a new media landscape. Participants completing this course will gain:

  • Deeper understanding of the new media landscape, especially its theological and cultural implications 
  • Space to explore, imagine, and reflect on hybrid ministry (online + in-person ministry)
  • Practical ways to do hybrid ministry well
  • Concrete actions to help others flourish in a new media landscape
