The Communications Office for the Diocese of Jefferson City invites you to join us in our upcoming “Weekly Webinar” training calls for parish staff professional development in the areas of communications and database management.
We understand our role to be one of support to you, empowering you to build up your communications efforts that grow your parish’s ministries wider and deeper for the faithful members of your parish, and the community you serve. To that end, we hope that this weekly webinar series will better equip you to confidently manage projects our office oversees including the parish website project, the Blackbaud database management project, and online giving through Blackbaud’s Merchant Services program.
Beginning May 13th, and continuing throughout the year, we will host a webinar on Thursdays from 12:15 PM to 1:00 PM. We will plan thirty minutes of training content and hold fifteen minutes at the end for practical questions or examples. We hope that this hour provides a “best fit” for parish staff, and appreciate feedback to make this more available if needed. We will record each session and provide a copy of that recording on the diocesan website for reference later, or to share with other staffers who are unable to attend live.
We have attached at the end of this memo a calendar of training sessions for you to review. We hope this calendar allows you to choose topics you find relevant and focus your time and schedule accordingly. We are also very open to accepting new topics from you for consideration in the future!
