In this panel, 3 highly successful faith organizations and the interactive agency that has supported them will discuss their success and frustrations as they try to bridge the digital and the divine. Patheos will share their expertise in social media engagement and talk about how to monetize content in the faith space without losing your soul. Odyssey Networks will show how they are using multiple applications, including a mobile app, to distribute content. Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) will discuss their new digital strategies, via their Webby-nominated website and social media platforms.
