There is no doubt that Churches and organizations need to have a social media presence.
Jesus went to the masses and the masses are using social media.
We need to “go” there, but what does it look like?
- Tweeting scripture?
- Announcing the next Chili Cook-off?
- Gaining more “Likes!” and Followers?
As the Body of Christ, we need to develop a strategy. We need to use technology to leverage the Kingdom of God, and not simply use technology because it’s cool, hip and fun.
It can be all of these things.
We must become more than just interested in being “Liked!-ed.” We must become more interested in gaining Followers of Christ instead of Twitter Followers.
So what’s our strategy?
How do we leverage social media for the Kingdom of God?
