Explore how we connect with and disciple teens through their screens. Digitally-savvy diocesan leaders Easton Davis and Eric Travis guide us through the tools they use to connect with youth in their work, including Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as group messaging apps. They will also share about the importance of branding. We will discuss how technology is affecting church and faith gatherings, reasonable expectations around "safe church" and social media, and how to reach through and beyond the screen to form faith.
