- One social media account you use the most?
Instagram – personally; Facebook – Church Communications. I would also point people to my twitter account. @kristyannhenry
- Have you ever served in your church’s tech ministry?
Yes, I served on a volunteer basis for 2 years before being hired this year part-time as a communications director.
- What tech, web, or app are you in love with right now?
Currently, the apps I love and are my go to are SquareSpace and Canva. Although I am a graphic and web designer by trade, I find that this was the best fit to work with a team of volunteers to create the overall web/graphic presence for my church.
- Who is your favorite social media person to follow and why?
Darrel Girardier – He is so encouraging. I find that when I listen to him, I always take away something useful to my everyday personal and ministry life. I have implemented many of his strategies and saw great success.
- What nerdy thing do you love right now on television, movies, or the web?
Ok, this is hard to admit, but I love games. I used to play a popular MMO, but have since switched to less time consuming games such as Clash of Clans and Boom Beach. I also listen to talk radio while I work. I am the nerd politics, local and world news girl.
- Last gadget you bought?
My most recent and absolutely necessary purchase was my fully-loaded 17” Macbook Pro. Extra nerd points that I have a matching macbook case, laptop bag, iPhone case and iPad case. You can never been too fashionably nerdy.
- When did you start reading Churchmag?
Probably, a year ago. I was soaking up anything church media related. I found that there was always something new there. I could count on new resources and articles consistently. Along with a genuine connection on social media to take the conversation online. Which I really appreciated. I felt like more than just another reader—I was a part of the conversation.
- What one part do you like most about Churchmag beyond the blog?
Toss up … Social Media for sure. The ChurchMag team genuinely connects with its readers on Twitter.
