for admin –

Q/A considerations for each service:
vid/audio quality
service length (in person and online)
diversity of faces and demographic representation
interactivity – is it involving
emotional impact – does it open people
mission/vision and stated leadership priorities (e.g. incorporating congregant faces)
branding and sustainability – does it support stated ongoing institutional needs
relevance – does it address major current events
attractive and sticky – does it grow and retain potential viewership

Potential elements —
opening (welcome & statement of being)
group recitations (mission/vision)
worship arts/music
announcements
Congregant representation – “Community Connection”
reading
meditation
talk
offering
