How to Deal with Difficult People
Let's face it. Sometimes, we have to deal with someone who's just really difficult. Perhaps they're demanding, complaining, or tyrannical. Maybe they act inappropriately or they're dishonest. Regardless, they're just difficult and yet, they may be a church staff person or a member. In this session, you'll learn valuable techniques for dealing effectively with challenging people. You'll learn how to deal with someone who's always complaining and never satisfied, someone who is dishonest, someone who is verbally abusive, someone who is threatening, and other types of difficult people. (You know the type, right?) You'll learn how to say no without alienating the other person. You'll also learn when it's appropriate to terminate the relationship and how to do so respectfully. You'll probably never be able to avoid difficult people entirely, but you certainly can learn how to manage them positively.

Living As One: Broadcasting to Campuses
When live video streaming first became a thing, innovative church techs adopted the technology and tried to use it to stream between campuses over the public internet. Problem was, the internet wasn't designed to provide perfect video quality streaming in real-time, and so their audiences experienced distracting video artifacts, dropouts, and buffering wheels. This resulted in many of the early innovators abandoning public internet streaming and reverting to less efficient methods such as on-demand file-based video delivery, or significantly more expensive and complicated options such as satellite video or streaming over private networks. 

Join this session to learn how, using next-generation streaming technologies, the live video quality and reliability problem has been solved, and how you can easily deploy that streaming technology across multiple locations regardless of geographical distance and quality of network access. You'll hear about how leading churches such as NewSpring, Elevation, Life Church, and Northwoods are saving thousands of dollars per month using this technology, and how it's changing their strategy from "where can we go" to "where do we need to go" -- because they now have the technology to go wherever.

PHYGITAL Church: Church Online Doesn't Compete with Physical Church, It Complements
Many Churches today view Church Online as an obstacle to physical church. More and more people are attending church online and not coming to physical buildings. Rather than seeing this culture change as a threat, what if our churches strategized utilizing the strengths of Church Online, around digital technology. What we'd find is that, given a chance, Church Online doesn't threaten physical church. The endgame isn't whether Church Online or Phygital Church is better... the endgame should be to merge these together. It's not physical. It's not digital. It's phygital.

Living As One, Broadcasting Online
Churches all over the world such as Hillsong, Life Church, and Elevation are leveraging live video to expand their ministry to reach online audiences. And it's not just the huge churches, either. In fact, according to a 2018 study by the Leadership Network, nearly a quarter of churches with total in-person attendance of 2,000 or less live stream their services, and that number is growing. What's common to all of these churches, though, is a growing awareness that the viewing experience of the end-user can be significantly impacted by the technology which is used for streaming over the public internet, so choosing the right technology to reach online audiences is key for effectiveness and engagement. 

Join this workshop to learn about the technical differences between the various methods for streaming online, and what those difference mean, practically, for your audience. When you walk away, you should understand the ins and outs of how your church can easily reach online audiences with live video through your website, social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook, and TV boxes like Roku and AppleTV.
