Next Ventures workshop to focus on

The next Ventures in Christian Discipleship workshop through McPherson College will take place April 23 and will feature leadership by Enten Eller, team pastor of the Ambler (Pa.) Church of the Brethren, who will present a course entitled “Technology for Congregations.” To register for the course, go to this course, we will explore various strategies to improve congregational communication, visibility, and even outreach by leveraging technology solutions that are affordable and appropriate for different contexts. We will touch on conference calls, virtual meetings, phone trees, email strategies, websites, streaming or recorded services and copyright considerations, and many other topics. Of special interest will be an hour devoted to Internet Safety, with guest presenter Brandon Lutz, a school district internet specialist in the greater Philadelphia area. Moreover, time will be set aside for addressing specific questions and concerns that participants bring from their own congregations.

Enten Eller has owned and operated his own computer business for over 30 years, is the former webmaster and Director of Distributed Education, Electronic Communication, and Educational Technology at Bethany Theological Seminary (2006-2014), serves as a streaming video specialist (broadcasting various events, from international webinars to Annual Conference), and is an ordained minister in the Church of the Brethren, currently team-pastoring the Ambler (PA) Church of the Brethren with his wife Mary, as well as the Living Stream Church of the Brethren (a fully-online church based in Portland, OR) with three other pastors from different states.  His goal is to share technology in a way that is understandable, accessible, and appropriate, while building community across geographic boundaries.
