Attention cheeseheads! Tim Welch of the Diocese of St. Cloud and I will be co-presenters at this year’s Adult Faith Formation & Catechetical Leadership Day at the Rock Garden Conference Center on April 26:
As catechists, we have been called to tell the Story of God’s Reign, and to tell it well. As ministers we have been called to empower our learners to tell their stories as growing disciples. Join us as we explore why and how to use technology in faith formation. Together with Tim Welch, we will explore 28,217 years of media and technology tools, from oral traditions to mobile apps, bringing us to the tools of today ¦and perhaps beyond!
Jonathan Sullivan will help take some of the mystery and apprehension out of online tools by demonstrating how to integrate social media into a parish’s adult faith formation efforts, beginning with a “live” demonstration of how to set up a parish Facebook page for one lucky participant! He will also explain just what Twitter is good for, what every parish web site should have on the front page (but very few do), and the value of a “human voice” in online interactions. Jonathan’s presentation encourages interaction and “try-as-you-go” methods, so bring your laptop or other mobile device.
