Pushpay is putting on Church Disrupt 2021: Make Your Mark, a free online conference for church staff and leadership teams on Wednesday, May 12. Church Disrupt will bring together leading pastors and industry experts for engaging keynotes and interactive breakout sessions that address some of today’s most pressing ministry problems.

Molly Matthews, chief executive officer at Pushpay, will deliver a CEO vision keynote. “For many of our customers, the COVID-19 pandemic forced an accelerated and immediate shift to technology solutions in order to remain connected and engaged with their congregations,” said Matthews. “These unprecedented times have undoubtedly changed the role technology has within the church and we are so excited to bring this community together to share lessons learned, inspiring stories of hope, and what’s to come for the future of technology.”

Andy Stanley, founder and senior pastor of North Point Ministries, will also deliver a keynote. Additionally, there will be nearly 20 speakers and 12 interactive breakout sessions led by pastors and thought leaders from around the country. Sessions will focus on:

1. Church Finance and Stewardship: For finance directors and staff interested in improving giving outcomes, this series will provide best practices in giving and donor development strategies and the shift to digital giving.

2. Digital Discipleship: For pastors and staff looking for ways to improve their digital footprint and increase online engagement, this breakout session will offer best practices and technology for hybrid worship experiences and tips on how to engage members digitally.

3. Church Technology: A behind the scenes look at the future of Pushpay’s technology and how to get the most out of existing solutions. Attendees will learn about new products coming down the pipeline, pro tips on leveraging existing product offerings and best practices for helping older congregants and staff embrace technology.
