The Rev. Joseph McBrayer tells his story of learning the arts of visual storytelling and digital presence.
We now feel called to be in digital spaces we don’t know a ton about. We need to produce videos — and we’re not sure how to produce a quality video… nor are we confident about what we say once we’re in front of the camera. How do we learn the skills we need in order to thrive in this new ministry setting?
Joseph McBrayer wrestled with these questions for years. So he taught himself the principles of good visual production and digital presence. And in doing so, he reinvented his personal role in ministry. He’s going to share that story with us and a ton of what he learned in this session of Pastoring in the Digital Parish.
