In response to last month’s webinar, Livestreaming Jesus: Adapting to Preaching Online (recording available here), Christine Parton Burkett teamed up with colleagues Brent Levy, Carrie Ferenac, Wesley Neal, and Blake Thomsen to produce a resource sheet for preachers.
This document summarizes Christine’s main points from the webinar and offers links for some of the best hardware and software recommendations for those who are now preaching online.
We hope this resource is useful to you as you continue to adapt your preaching practices to an online world.
Looking for more resources for preaching? Check out our Upcoming Webinars. Next week, we are hosting Chad Wright Pittman, who will lead us in a webinar called Poets, Prophets, and Preaching. What do modern poets and 8th century prophets have in common? And what can preachers learn from both? We hope you will join us!

She has been a featured presenter at more than one hundred retreats, workshops and conferences for clergy around the United States and in Canada, and she regularly coaches clergy and lay worship leaders using tools that she has created including reader’s theater, choric readings, and biblical story-telling.

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