I’m Nils Smith, the Innovation Pastor at Community Bible Church in San Antonio, TX, author of The Social Media Guide for Ministry, and CEO of Amplify Social Media

I live in New York City and am married to my wife of eleven years, Katie, and we have 2 beautiful girls together.  We love traveling as much as possible and when home love our adventures in and around Brooklyn.

I am a graduate of Texas State University with a degree in Business Management and I earned my Masters in Ministry Leadership at Rockbridge Seminary. I have over 12 years experience in full-time ministry as a Youth Pastor, Young Adult Pastor, and in Online Ministry.

Over the past 10 years I have been very active online in maximizing web resources to further ministries through:

As the Innovation Pastor at Community Bible Church, one of the largest and fastest growing churches in the United States, I oversee the entire web presence of CBC including website, mobile app, tv apps, online church, social media, etc. I also had the opportunity to launch the ministry of Online Church for CBC which is now reaching over 12,000 people each week from more than 400 different cities around the world.  Additionally, we have a growing Facebook Community of over 800,000 people.

These ministry efforts have been highlighted in Church Executive MagazineThe Christian PostKENS5 NewsChurch Marketing SucksChurchMagThe Baptist StandardLeadership Network, and several other media outlets.

It would be a great honor to serve your church, ministry, or organization in utilizing web technologies to accomplish your goals.


Whether we begin a contract relationship or not, I would love the opportunity to talk with you and discuss options available for your church or organization.
