3 Reasons Your Church Should Participate In Social Media


The Ministry Best Practices Staff will be on vacation and will be entering a "tech-free" zone. Therefore for the week we are sharing some of the best of MBP. Some of the content has been repurposed and updated.

Sure Social Media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter, have a big "gee-whiz" factor. Everybody is hopping on the bandwagon and getting involved. People are telling you that if you and your church don't get connected to this new media that you're going to get left behind and miss out.

But there has got to be a more compelling reason for a church, ministry or non-profit to sign on to these social media applications than "everybody else is doing it."

The question you have to ask concerning your organization is, "Why get on board and get involved with Social Media?" You must be convinced that there is a compelling reason for your church to dive into social media.

That compelling reason can be found from business -they call it ROI, Return On Investment. What is the ROI of Social Media for ministry and your church? In this post, I don't want to address the quantitative aspect of ROI, but rather the qualitative.

How does social media improve the quality of ministry and help move the church's objectives forward?

I believe there needs to be 3 ROI Quality Goals and Objectives for Social Media

1. Communication
2. Connecting
3. Call to Action

Let me break these down:

1. Communication
- Social Media must help the church effectively and efficiently communicate it's message. Certainly Social Media isn't the only medium. A church can communicate to it's people on the Sunday morning platform, bulletins, mailings, phone calls, emails, face-to-face conversations, television, radio etc... Social Media, though, becomes just another effective tool to add to the church's communication mosaic. But Social Media has some unique benefits all it's own in effectively communicating:

  • - it's easy and effortless, it doesn't take much money or manpower to implement or use it.
  • - it's ubiquitous, since it is so available and pervasive it isn't hard for people to miss the message.
  • - it's variety, social media takes many different forms, words, audio and image.
  • - it's viral, the beauty of social media is that your message can expand well beyond it's intended audience - therefore exposing and introducing new people to your cause and community.
2. Connecting - Social Media must connect your community. Unlike communication which most often pushes information in a "one-way" direction, connecting must create a conversation. You must ask, Will Social Media create conversation within the community? Are people able to talk to you the minister/ministry team leader? Can they talk to one another? Also, part of the conversation involves other key elements:

  • - contribute, can others contribute in helpful and meaningful ways to the conversation? Are they even able to shape the conversation?
  • - collaborate, does your social media allow the benefits from the collective hive of experience, skills and knowledge from your community?
3. Call to Action - Social Media must prompt people to do something. It can't be passive. Some of the calls to ACTION might include:

  • - Go, are you asking someone to go and serve others in some way?
  • - Give, are you asking someone to give either of their time or financially to the cause?
  • - Pray, are you calling people to act in concerted and persevering prayer?
  • -Mobilize, are you asking people to spread the message of the cause to their friends and networks?
So as you think about Social Media for your church, ministry or non-profit, you must ask yourself....How will this new Social Media "thing" help our church, ministry or organization Communicate, Connect our Community, and Call People to Action?

If you have a clear answer to that question, then most definitely your church should invest in Social Media.

My name is Taylor Borg,All thanks goes to Dr.Trust for saving my marriage from toning apart.i feel so grateful and only have good words about a powerful spell caster named Dr.Trust who helped me bring back my wife. We had been apart for 4 months, at first I was thinking if I was doing the right thing by contacting a spell caster, but I so much love my wife and won't give her up for anything in this world.

Now we are together and she cant do without me,and both of us are happy. I feel so happy sharing this testimony because there was no negative act attached to his work. His work was smooth and fast.

HELLO everyone I'm GEORGE DONALD from Texas. My wife left me for no reason. He moved in with another man called Perry who was her lover before we went into a relationship, when we have few days left for our wedding. I felt like killing myself because of the shame and disgrace. I've tried different spell casters and went to different temples to pray for her to come back because i really love her very much but all to no avail. My life was very bitter and sorrowful that always cause me anger every time. Then one day, a friend of mine told me about Dr OSUMA and that he is very good and does not even charge a lot for his services he advised me to contact his email osumaspelltemple@gmail.com. He said he helped him get his job back and on his marital affairs he has played a great role. I didn't believe it because I've worked with many of them and it didn't work. He begged me further, so I decided to try out Dr OSUMA I contacted him, and I gave him the necessary information. I still didn't believe, but I still went ahead and purchased the love spell, and the next day I received a call and it was my darling fiance, ANITA. She apologized and came back to me. She even went to the media to announce her apologies and our preparation for our wedding. I'm now a very a happy man. Thank you Dr OSUMA, I will forever be grateful to you. he can solve any problem like

THANKS TO DR BENEDICT FOR SOLVING MY PROBLEMS

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{benedictsolutioncentre@gmail.com}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster DR benedict. So.

I just want to share my experience
and testimony here... I was married for 3years to my husband and all of a
sudden, another woman came into the picture... He started hailing me and he was
abusive. But I still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all
cost…then he filed for divorce. My whole life was turning apart and I didn’t
know what to do .he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids... so someone
told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me
to a spell caster called Chief Priest Amros…so I decided to try it reluctantly. Although I didn’t believe in all those things… then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2days, my husband came back and was pleading. He had realized his mistakes. I just couldn’t believe it... Anyways we are back together now and we are happy. In case anyone needs this man, his email address holytempleofsolution@hotmail.com His spells is for a better life. Again his
email is holytempleofsolution@hotmail.com or call him via his mobile number +2347060458342
