Tech in Worship and Faith Formation

$15
Technology in Worship and Faith Formation

From the “Things They Didn’t Teach Me in Seminary” Seminar Series at Emmanuel College
Workshop Leader: Jason Meyers Emm 2T9, minister for congregational care, Metropolitan United Church
It is undeniable that the pandemic has forced change upon the church. Over the past months, “We’ve never done it that way before!” has given way to, “We need to do things differently!” Leaders in congregational ministry have had to ask hard questions about the purpose and essence of worship and faith formation. We have had to find new ways to connect and communicate using tools such as Zoom, social platforms and live-streaming. And now, as many churches are looking to offer both in-person and online services and programs, the variables have shifted once again, and new questions are emerging. How can we retain the best of our traditions without forgetting all we have learned in these past months? How can we foster community and a sense of belonging as a “hybrid church” where some will gather in our buildings and others will participate digitally? How can we continue to innovate and creatively offer Gospel hope into a world so desperate for hope?
Led by Rev. Jason Meyers, minister of worship and faith formation at Metropolitan United Church in downtown Toronto, this workshop will explore these questions while also offering some practical suggestions to church leaders entering ministry in this very dynamic (and exciting!) time.
The Emmanuel College Alumni/ae Association (ECAA) is pleased to partner with the Centre by hosting Emmanuel College alumni/ae mini-reunion breakout rooms following this event. If you are an alumni/ae, and would like to join this gathering, register for the event and indicate in the registration form that you will be joining us for the post-event alumni/ae breakout room.
