Co+Create Network

Asset 4

Welcome to Co+Create! This space is designed for those who do administrative or communications work in their church. Our meetings cover a range of topics in the tech, design, and communication fields.

The Network
Our goal is to build a community of church admins and communications people who are radically connected, share resources with one another, and feel equipped and empowered to lead their church in the 21st century.

Our meetings will typically take place on the third Thursday of the month from 4:00-5:00 pm. Registration for each meeting will be free, but space will be limited so you’ll need to register in advance. An email containing the Zoom link will be sent out to registrants shortly before each meeting.

What to Expect
We host a guided discussion with plenty of open time for feedback and questions. We’re here to build off of each other’s experience and knowledge base. All levels of technology users are welcome, our workshops will be engaging for beginners to intermediate users.
