Using A.I. Tools in the Church

 
Wondering what A.I. is all about and how it can be used in the church? A little nervous about what is and isn’t legal? Concerned about ethics? Just not sure it’s for you?
 
Those questions and more will be answered in the Using A.I. Tools in the Church seminar. Amazon Bestselling Author and consultant Jason Moore will guide a conversation about what A.I. is, how to use it (and not use it), which tools are most useful for various aspects of ministry and will demonstrate how to use them.
 
Best of all, most A.I. tools are free to use or are very affordable. Regardless of your church size, budget, and worship style, this A.I. primer will be helpful for you. 
 

Saturday 9:00-3:30 8/17 @ Life UMC
 
BOTH/AND: Hospitality

 
The onset of the global pandemic changed so much of what we’ve known ministry to be inside and outside the church. Social distancing, and non-physical gatherings brought new challenges where connection and relationship building are concerned. 
 
With so much ministry happening BOTH in the building AND online, how can we earn the second, third, and ongoing visits from those who are new to our faith communities? New strategies are required for living into what it means to be a hospitable church.
 
In a season where everything feels different, how can we claim or reclaim a passion for radical hospitality, making great first impressions and work toward being poised for guests before they arrive? 
 
Join guest readiness and hybrid worship author and coach Jason Moore for an exploration of what it means to extend BOTH/AND Hospitality.
