Workshop

Come and learn about the latest social media and digital storytelling tools and how to use them effectively in whatever your context may be (business/non-profit/ministry/church). This is a free workshop, open to the public. All are welcome! Bring your questions and your ideas and let's have some fun talking Web stuff together.

Sermon

The Web is only 26 years old. Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter are all less than 12 years old. But they've changed (and are changing) our worlds. How should we then live in the digital age? And what is the amazing opportunity we all have each and every day that the Web can enable in new and powerful ways?
