I've been thinking a lot about utilizing social networking in ministry and church life. Things are at the point where virtually everyone is connected to some social network (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc). Are we adapting our communication to fit the trends? Businesses of all shapes and sizes are using these outlets effectively for connecting with their customers, why couldn't the church do the same to create buzz for what it's doing among its members and community?

I know a number of churches have already tapped into this, but I'm curious: what are Network members doing with social networks? How are you using them? What have you found effective? As a church planter, I intend to use Twitter and Facebook quite heavily to generate buzz on what we're doing and what's coming up. What's happening in your neck of the woods?

I think this is a great idea and I would love to hear more about it. I think by sharing ideas and plans in our own communities, we could encourage others to use our ideas and share their own in our celebration of Christ and our church

There are several articles and discussions about social media on the network. If you click on the "Social Media" tab you'll see a list.

Thanks for pointing that out - I certainly didn't mean to repeat topics. I obviously didn't look hard enough before posting. :-)

No worries, I just didn't want you both to miss the good stuff out there!

Sorry, I mis-spoke when I said "tab." It's actually a link on the Main Page of the Church and Web section, under "Topics." Hope it helps!
