I’ve been learning that context is key for churches in social media. This means that one aspect you should consider as a church is how you are being contextual in your social media posts. This includes time, location, current events, weather, etc. If you can contextualize your posts for your audience then you will see […]

Optimal Times For Facebook Posts For Your Church

The question I get asked most often by churches using social media and specifically Facebook is “When are the best times to post content?” And my answer is the same for everyone, “I don’t know.” It could be different for your church than it is for my church. It all depends on your context and […]

So I’m going to start out with another great quote from Carlos Whittaker, “We’ve created a system of church in that there is zero anticipation for something new…We need to disturb and disrupt the career Christian for the sake of them seeing Christ’s face afresh.” In […]

Our Identity In Ministry

I’m convinced that one of the biggest struggles that we, as humans face is striving to find our identity in our accomplishments and careers. And when you think about it, it makes perfect sense. The majority of our time in life will have been spent in our job. I know, our identity is supposed to […]

Trial & Error in Church Social Media

Did you know that 80% of social media success is trial and error. Just kidding. I made that up. But I’m not lying when I say that a large amount of what you will learn in using social media for your church is trial and error. You can read all the social media books you […]
