From Social Media to Social Ministry

Social media has changed many aspects of life. Though some have denied and resisted it, churches are being affected by the internet too. Congregations have to make a choice as to whether they will utilize social media as part of their ministries, or get left behind.

There are several opinions and strategies held by churches when it comes to social media. When lock-downs were put in place to curb the coronavirus in 2020, many had to scramble to piece something together. The church I attend had a backup plan in place, but I can see that we could have done more. The good part is that we still can do more.

This book describes how social media is not a replacement or supplement for physical locations, but an extension. There are people that may not want to or be able to come to your building, but that does not remove our ability to share the gospel with them. Social media extends a church’s reach to a wider area. The book lays out simple to follow plans for making social media a place to further your ministry.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
