As churches closed their sanctuaries and offices in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to engage online using a variety of tools became more pressing than ever. 

United Methodist Communications continues to launch free fast-track online courses to help you use the most helpful technology as you lead worship, conduct meetings or classes, receive offerings, meet in small groups or offer pastoral care.

The online courses designed specifically for church leaders include:

The Zoom course launched March 25 and Facebook Groups a few days later. "Adobe Rush" lauanched in mid-May and teaches how to use a video editing tool.. 

Additional courses will be listed  as they launch.
