We had our first online “All Staff Meeting” this week. Several people were asking how we did it, so I thought I’d share a few thoughts.
HOW? We used our church online platform at www.churchonline.org.
WHY? Since our staff is spread out, bringing them together is costly, time consuming, and challenging. We hoped an online event would provide us with the opportunity to communicate, inspire and motivate.
In addition to simply receiving information, the staff had the additional benefit of talking to each other through the online chat.
SURPRISES: None of us had any idea how much fun we’d have. I was laughing out loud much of the time at the hilarious chatting. The staff was buzzing with excitement the day after the meeting.
When we asked people to get serious, they did quickly. The corporate worship was powerful and the prayer time was deeply moving.
We will continue to meet together in person and do an online event once or twice a year when it makes sense. Here is a short clip from the meeting.
If any staff members would like to add some thoughts about your experience, please do.
