Workshop to offer church tech guidance, inspiration


A church technology revolution is under way, and church leaders who embrace this new age with creativity and wisdom are seeing their congregations thrive.

The Theological Commons at Methodist Theological School in Ohio will offer religious leaders a time of guidance and inspiration with “Liturgy and Leadership in the Digital Age,” a free in-person and online workshop led by pastors, authors and sought-after speakers Rachel Billups and Matt Rawle.

The free workshop will take place Wednesday, April 17, from 9:30 a.m. to noon on the MTSO campus, 3081 Columbus Pike, Delaware, and streamed online. An optional post-workshop lunch, featuring food from MTSO’s Seminary Hill Farm, will be offered for a cost.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in music from Louisiana State University and a Master of Divinity from Duke Divinity School.

“This workshop promises an immersive dive into the transformative effects of the digital revolution on church leadership and discipleship practices,” Billups said. “Expect to leave with more than just knowledge; expect a shift in perspective. We’re not here to react to change; we’re here to lead it. Embrace this opportunity to reimagine church, leadership, and your impactful role in the digital age.”
