2016 Look Back: Church Website Series

Last May I wrote a series of blog posts about church websites. I looked through Wordpress and Squarespace and detailed my experience sharing some advice on managing church/ministry websites on these platforms.

I would love to hear what technologies and best practices that you are using with your church website!  

 

2016 Look Back: Snapchat Series

Many predicted Snapchat to be 2016’s social network. It’s not hard to see why since the social network undoubtedly caused quite a stir in the social media world. Last April I dedicated a blog series to looking at Snapchat in close detail. Let’s take a look back:

2016 Look Back: Instagram Series

In 2016 I dedicated a blog series for Instagram discussing how it could be most effectively used for ministry. 2016 was quite a year for Instagram stepping up against its surprising competitor Snapchat (I also wrote a blog series about Snapchat).

Here’s a look back at a series that I hope inspires y’all to up your Instagram game this year:


If you think you haven’t given much attention to Instagram in 2016, I challenge you to crush it this year!
