Want to help your diocese master new media?

Digital Church Conference

Our world is swirling with new media. Facebook has over a billion users. Each minute YouTube adds 70 hours of video. And every day we send six billion text messages.

For most Catholics this is both exciting and terrifying. We know this technology is powerful. And we know that we should be using it. But much of the Church is simply afraid to dive in. They’re wary of the dangers, they don’t know where to start, and they’re unsure how to move forward.

That’s why Matt Warner, Josh Simmons, and I created the Digital Church Conference, a one-day guide to the digital continent. Through several talks, interactive demos, and panel discussions, we teach people everything they need to know, from perfecting their website, to building social networks, to evangelizing online.

On Wednesday, we’re putting on our third Digital Church Conference, this time for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati (more details here). But we’d love to take it to every diocese in the country, including your own. The Church badly needs help in this area of extraordinary potential.

So can you please help spread the word? Pass this message on to your pastor, parish staff, diocese, communication director, or your bishop. Share the video on Facebook, Twitter, or your blog. We’d also love to do a guest post or interview on your website. We’d be grateful for any help you can give.

PS. If you ever need graphics, logos, websites, or video trailers for a project, I highly recommend Cory Heimann at Likable Art. Cory designed the video trailer above. As you can see, he’s phenomenally talented. He’s also strongly Catholic. Check out his past work and then reach him at [email protected]
