FILO, which stands for First In and Last Out, is a community of people who volunteer and work in production for their local church. What they do isn’t easy and it isn’t for everyone and since most people don’t totally understand what FILO does, it is so important for them to connect and then stay connected.
The FILO Conference is an event that gathers the group together for skill development, community and inspiration. With Covid-19 keeping many of us from traveling, our in-person gatherings have been put on hold and we have had to learn how to hold virtual events now. One of the advantages of this new method is that they have the ability to extend the FILO Conference to a wider audience. That’s where FILO en Español comes in!

Learn How to Connect Your Church with an Online Community
The global pandemic has changed the way Christian communities worship and interact. Right now, the congregation cannot safely gather together for church on Sundays so most of the communication has to be done online. A challenge many pastors and worship teams are facing is learning how to connect with people through video sermons and small group Zoom meetings. For some, the technology is difficult to navigate and for others, the virtual experience simply isn’t as genuine.
Times of uncertainty are when your congregation need God and worship the most. It’s up to you to figure out how to bring people together online and keep people engaged. Below is information on the upcoming live Worship Summit held on July 29. This free virtual conference will teach your worship team everything they need to know about living in a digital age and communicating online.
