Social Media and the Church

Social media includes and is not limited to Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Twitter and blogs, among others.

Social media is about relationships, and connections and the ever evolving communications tool continually being invented.

Where does the church fit in?

The printing press that was used to print your Bible, to the laptop computer and the cell phone can be used for excellent ventures or immorality.

For the Gospel to be heard it has to be communicated. The Church needs go to the community.

People are spending more and more of their time on Facebook and Twitter.

Awaken the Christian Church to the fact that people are indeed on the Web in increasing numbers and spending more of their time there.

Whether you like it or not, it is happening.

We have a historic opportunity.

  • Will the Church, find ways to impact their communities through this tool called the Internet?  
  • Will we get out of our comfort zones?

My prayer is that we will.


  1. Promote something of ‘value’ and you can even turn a promotion into ‘content’ 🙂 I have heard the 90/10 rule works best, but the point is, whether its 80/20 or 90/10 or 75/25 doesn’t matter as much as how VALUABLE is the CONTENT you are delivering 🙂 If you follow 99/1 and your 99% content is irrelavant, untimely, and just plain valueless to your readership, you really don’t have a 99/1 ratio 😉
