Telephone or video conferencing can be a useful way of gathering, if time or distance is a factor in arranging meetings in congregations with a wide catchment area. Your web browser, and the advice of those you trust,can help select a provider. Additionally, participants should become familiar with teleconferencing etiquette, as it differs from that for face-to-face meetings. The world wide web can supply information on this, also. Although teleconferencing and video conferencing can be convenient, holding face-to-face meetings makes it easier to build community, which is in large measure what congregations are about.
