  • Having a policy / social media calendar to be strategic in ‘what’ and ‘when’ we communicate online
  • Having audience personas to be strategic in ‘how’ we communicate
  • Having a long term vision for equipping churches, buying equipment, and digital training
  • Having a plan for how to continue online worship and facilitate live streaming
