Over 8,000 churches are using the RightNow Media platform to connect their people with the best of the best in church development training, some of whom just might be your neighbours. RightNow Media is devoted to streaming in church leadership conference videos from Catalyst, Leadership Network, Verge, Echo, D6 and more. Yep, that does indeed mean that you could listen to Andy Stanley, Rick Warren, Francis Chan, Ed Stetzer and many, many more anytime, anywhere. They record it and you watch it at your convenience, with permission to share it with your staff, small group, leadership class, or any other ministry related group that is part of your church.
Perhaps the hugest advantage to what RightNow Media's Leadership Event Library offers is the opportunity to share the learning with ALL of your leaders, not just those whom the church could afford to send to the live conference, and could take the time off work, and had the flexibility to leave their families. Think how many times your leaders come back from conferences all fired up about what they've learned, but it is a challenge to have that fire catch and begin burning in the ones left behind. There are so many tangible benefits to being able to experience the learning together as a team, being able to press pause and unpack a particular portion of the teaching and then move on at a pace that suits your needs. Then I being thinking of the hours saved booking rentals, hotels, arranging meals, flights, etc. Instead you can put that energy into each other and your community.
They are also equipped to help you embed the material into your church's website, allowing you to have an active Leadership Development tab as part of what your church has to offer its members. Here is a sample training post.
I could say more about the opportunity a service like this could provide, but I'm sounding like an infomercial, so I'll leave you the link and let you be the judge. I highly recommend the short Tour of the Leadership Events Library as your first stop.
If you like what you see, your church can decide to sign up for a free demo of what RightNow Media has to offer.
