Digital Bootcamp February ’18 Highlights

Digital Bootcamp tried something new in February. We did our 1st ever Winter Ministry Vlog Week (we’ve done 2 other Summer Ministry Vlog Weeks before). It was great encouraging others to do some videos! In addition to this we had a great month talking about Easter preparation, how to engage multiple generations with tech AND how to do Facebook Live for your ministry.

It was a great month, so check out some of the highlights below.

Week 1: Winter Ministry Vlog Week (Tom Pounder)

Week 2: Easter Preparation (Justin Nava and Dave Curlee)

Week 4: Facebook Live for your Ministry (Dave Maddron)

Technology is every changing and it is hard to keep pace with all that is happening. That is why it is so encouraging to have experts around to help us learn all that is happening so we can adapt to our ministry for a more expanded reach. Check out the highlights of the month to see what stood out to you about Facebook Live, engaging multiple generations with technology and last minute Easter preparation and head over to to Digital Bootcamp to scan through it all the discussion and videos to see what other content stood out to you.
