To Continue Reaching, Connecting, and Discipling People, We Have to Change Our Approach
- Online engagement is declining
- What we've tried may not have worked so far
- We don't have a comprehensive plan that combines in-person and online strategies
- Church leaders aren't experienced in this area
- We feel discouraged and overwhelmed
- A new approach is needed... not just for now, but for the future long-term

Your Guide - Nick Blevins
Hey, I'm Nick.
I'll be your guide as we take this 10-week journey to reach and connect more people to your church online.
My wife (Jennifer) and I have been married for over 15 years and we have 3 awesome kids. I serve on the staff leadership team at Community Christian Church in Nottingham, MD. I have an M.A. in Christian Leadership and I'm a certified Church StratOp Facilitator. I love helping churches reach their full potential.
For the last 10+ years, I have learned online business, online marketing, and anything related to reaching and connecting with people online. I did that in order to help connect with church leaders in an effort to serve them, but little did I know the same online tactics and strategies would be needed in the church in just a short time.

Gather a Team and Let's Get Started!
This course is designed for a team of church staff to go through together.
Because, the content will cover a broad scope within the church and in most cases, that will span multiple roles. The best approach would be to form a team, take the course together, and divide up the responsibilities along the way.
Can I take it on my own?
Absolutely. Whether you simply want to focus this on your ministry or you ARE the staff, you can take it on your own and get the same out of it.
Either way, I would recommend bringing along some volunteers to help.
Weekly live sessions will take place from 3-4:30PM on Thursdays from August 6 through October 8.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can't watch the sessions live?
If one registration is for an entire church staff, how does everyone get access?
Will this help with Children's Ministry, Student Ministry, _________ Ministry?
What will the live sessions look like?
COVID-19 prompted most churches to move to a 100% digital strategy in a short time. It was new and different and many of the challenges led us to feel discouraged and unsure of what to do next. What we do know is we can't continue doing things the same way.
I want to take the strategies and tactics from leading online that I've learned over the last 10+ years and apply them to my church. I want to help your church apply them as well. Here's how you can take the journey with me:
- Register for this course
- Block off Thursdays from 3-4:30pm Eastern
- Apply what you learn to your church
There are no guarantees (as if there ever were in ministry), but I'm confident these strategies are needed in our churches.
Register now and we'll start on August 6, 2020.
