Regional Boot Camps

Alexandria boot camp

Want to help bring e-Formation ideas to your judicatory, professional association, or region? Local boot camps are a great way to ease in more timid or skeptical leaders, or those who simply can’t commit to or afford the multi-day conference.

We will work with your leadership (including local trainers) to design the programming, complete with concurrent workshops and plenary time to bring everything together. Workshop ideas include the following:

  • Church website (re)designs: Your guide to getting started
  • Timeless wisdom, modern expression: Spiritual resources online
  • Basic social media: Facebook & Twitter for individuals & congregations
  • Visual social media: Glimpses of grace on Instagram & Pinterest
  • E-vangelism 101: Online newsletters and digital advertising
  • Faith in motion: Web video & digital storytelling
  • Hybrid faith formation: In-person + online small group ministry
  • Blogging best practices: Editorial and pastoral considerations
  • Advanced social media: Getting the most from Facebook & Twitter metrics
  • Using specialized community outreach & communication tools (Nextdoor, Slack, Meetup, etc.)
  • The podcast revolution: Listening, sharing, creating
  • Lightning round: Ministry tech tool round-up

We have completed single-day events in PhoenixAlexandriaNew Orleans, California, and ChicagoIf you’d like to host a regional e-Formation bootcamp, please contact cmt@vts.edu.
