Livestreaming Jesus: Adapting to Preaching Online
Presented by the Center for Leadership Excellence
with Christine Parton Burkett
Tuesday, April 14, 1pm EST
In this webinar, Christine Parton Burkett will discuss the nature of online delivery in the time of COVID-19. We will look at what we keep from our old ways of preaching and what we leave behind. We will address the practical aspects of camera anxiety, staging, posture, and presence. And we will remember the ancient truth about preaching; God already has powerful plans for your worship.

She holds degrees in theater and speech language pathology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
