Hybrid worship training course empowers churches

Nashville, Tennessee – Creating Hybrid Worship Services, a newly released online training course, is designed to explore the best practices for offering worship services that engage participants both in-person and online. It is an open enrollment, self-paced course that allows students to register at any time. The complimentary course is offered by United Methodist Communications, the denomination’s global communication agency.

“Hybrid worship is becoming a norm for many churches” notes Director of Training and Development Jeremy Brown. “Our goal is to help churches identify effective hybrid techniques and highlight tools and skills needed to make hybrid worship accessible to them.”

The Creating Hybrid Worship Services course offers lessons on:

  • Live-streaming: Learn about the essential components of a live-streamed service including video capture devices, cameras, live-streaming software, and multi-streaming platforms.
  • Teleconferencing options: Learn how to use teleconferencing (including Zoom) for providing hybrid services.
  • Online engagement tips and techniques: Learn how to lead remote participants to engage in the worship service and equip team-members to become effective worship moderators.
