We all know that taking the first step is hard. Creating a virtual tour of your facility, Sunday service, and various outreach efforts helps to orient your community to who you are, what you are about and whether they can relate to your culture and community. Newcomers are in turn, more relaxed when they do cross the threshold because their first experience in doing so already happened via the web. Whether you are a seasoned videographer and storyteller or have no experience at all, creating a virtual tour is possible for every church.

We will give you the steps to ensure that your organization is claimed on Google. We will walk you through the equipment to shoot your own 360 photo spheres or the resource list to find a Google approved photographer and the final process of hosting the tour. The session will also include examples of tours where embedded information can be found such as intro videos, sign up sheets, and more.
