Are you passionate about connecting people to Jesus using digital strategies? Would you like to learn how to engage people for Christ with social media tools? You should consider attending an Indigitous conference. These digital strategy conferences come out of the Global Digital Strategies office at Lake Hart and are being offered in different locations to make them readily accessible to more people.
What Is Indigitous?
Indigitous” is a fusion of Indigenous and Digital. These two words were chosen because “indigenous” reflects the desire for locally-generated strategies that work in each generation, language and culture and digital tools, resources, platforms and strategies can be used to accelerate God’s mission.
Each conference has a different emphasis. For instance, the Ethiopian conference will focus on using mobile strategies for evangelism and discipleship in Africa. The following list is current, but to be sure of dates, et cetera, go to the source: Indigitous.com
