Nashville, Tennessee – Church leaders are navigating an ever changing ministry landscape. United Methodist Communications knows that identifying how best to deliver messages effectively and efficiently can be a challenge for any local church. In response, the agency’s Training Team is launching a series of ecumenical virtual communications learning conferences aimed to assist all who seek to share the gospel. The first offering, The Church Communications Workshops Series: Leveraging Communication for Greater Connection, is focused on next level communication methods and will take place daily from 10am to 2:30pm CT on April 20-21, 2021.

The event offers 20+ learning opportunities facilitated by professionals and leaders of innovative church communications. This two-day conference will help church leaders focus on leveraging a variety of communication tools such as social media, digital ministry, and news writing to share their church’s story with the members and seekers in their communities. Conference attendees will benefit from trusted and proven tactics shared by communication experts. Workshop facilitators will also help participants identify best practices and techniques to take the next steps toward their communication goals.

Outside of the conference, church leaders can access United Methodist Communications’ self-serve online training courses. Each offers professional instruction with the added benefit of convenience to accommodate busy schedules.

For more than 80 years, the United Methodist Communications team has been telling the church’s stories to enhance ministry and reflect the church to the world. In 2020 alone, the agency trained 4,930 leaders to maintain engaging online worship and communications experiences in a socially distanced world.

Anyone looking to learn or hone communications ministry skills can find details and registration information for The Church Communications Workshops Series: Leveraging Communication for Greater Connection virtual conference at UMCTraining.org.
