Join us for our Key Ministry Video Roundtable!

Key Ministry Video RoundtableWe’re going to be trying something new…and we’d be delighted to have anyone serving in disability ministry join us!

Our team at Key Ministry will be launching our Disability Ministry Video Roundtable…a fully interactive, monthly gathering of ministry leaders and key volunteers. The first video roundtable will take place on Wednesday, February 17th from 12:00 rwolfe2PM to 1:30 PM EST, and will be hosted by Ryan Wolfe, Pastor of Developmental Disabilities from First Christian Church in Canton, OH and a Key Ministry church consultant.

So…what exactly is a video roundtable and how is it different from a podcast?

I don’t know about the rest of you, but one of the best reasons to attend live ministry conferences is the opportunity to informally hang out with friends and colleagues to share stories and experiences. Everyone involved with special needs or mental health inclusion… from a beginner to the folks from the conference circuit – will experience unique challenges in ministry with the individuals and families served by your church. We’re offering a platform for ministry leaders and volunteers of all experience levels to partake of – or contribute to the collective wisdom.

This is a conversation for potentially up to fifty leaders and volunteers at any one time. We don’t have a set agenda for these roundtables, but at the time of registration, participants will have the opportunity to share topics with our host for the month that they’s like to discuss. For those who are unable to join us “live and in cyberspace,” we’ll be posting the video of each Roundtable on Key Ministry’s Vimeo page.

Unlike a podcast…

  • You have the opportunity to help set the agenda.
  • You have the opportunity to interact with the host(s) and any other participant(s) in real time.
  • You have an opportunity to tap into the wisdom of the entire audience when looking for help with your ministry challenges.

We’re going to try this in February, March and April and evaluate at that time how we might enhance the experience for all participants. Here’s our schedule…

  • Wednesday, February 17th: Ryan Wolfe hosting
  • Wednesday, March 16th: Shannon Dingle hosting
  • Wednesday, April 20th: I’ll be hosting, accompanied by a special guest host.

There’s no charge involved with joining us for the roundtable, but we do require participants to register. Registration is capped at up to fifty guests, and each guest will receive an e-mail upon registration with a link to join the conference.

What will you need technology-wise to join us? A computer, tablet or smartphone with a video camera and a microphone. We use Zoom for our videoconferencing…we encourage you to register for Zoom (free) and download the free app before joining the roundtable.
